Rate the Ad: Burger King: Kingon Nipple Pinch

Published on .

Last week, we asked you to share your thoughts on Google's new YouTube channel for Chrome and the 11 commissioned videos extolling the virtues of the new web browser by designers, illustrators and creative shops like Motion Theory and Superfad.

While we thought it a creatively-executed, if not puzzling, way to make some headway for Chrome, it seems some of you weren't too impressed. Or as the always cheery "dukker" put it, "Google should certainly stay away from advertising, if only because they're so awful at it. Google, search thyself and find an agency that doesn't suck, or maybe an article on how to be a good client and pick great advertising."

This week, we serve up a new spot for Burger King from Crispin Porter + Bogusky, that teams everyone's favorite plastic-faced mascot with a certain extraterrestrial race from a hallowed sci-fi franchise. Yep, it's the ol' double-barreled, fast food/blockbuster movie collaboration promotion. This time, by way of some nifty fanboy drinking glasses, matching up BK with J.J. Abrams' new Star Trek prequel that hits theaters tomorrow. So, Trekkies and non-fans, what do you think? Cool movie related swag promo or the abominable result of someone putting the King and Commander Worf in a dark alley with sexy results? Is it a sin to mix burgers and Batleths? As usual, let us know in the comments below.
