BK Pulls a Janet Jackson

Published on .

BK pulls a Janet Jackson.
Following fast on the stir created by its "Subservient Chicken" campaign, Burger King becomes the first -- and perhaps, only -- marketer to speak directly to the Janet Jackson backlash. In a spot from Crispin Porter + Bogusky and Moxie Pictures director Martin Granger that aired during Saturday Night Live this weekend, two male office workers get into a shoving match and one rips the other's shirt to reveal -- you guessed it -- a starburst nipple ring like the one Ms. Jackson unveiled at the Super Bowl. As bad as SNL's been lately, NBC should have paid BK for this one.
