This is so bizarre. KFC is introducing the most bizarre sandwich ever, and Burger King is copying one of McDonald’s sandwiches so they decided to make a commercial about copying McDonald’s sandwich.
First there’s KFC:
“The new KFC Double Down sandwich is real and it’s coming April 12th! This one-of-a-kind sandwich features two thick and juicy boneless white meat chicken filets (Original Recipe® or Grilled), two pieces of bacon, two melted slices of Monterey Jack and pepper jack cheese and Colonel’s Sauce. This product is so meaty, there’s no room for a bun!”
The Double Down comes in two versions – Original Recipe® (32 grams of fat, 540 calories, & 1380mg of Sodium) or Grilled (23 grams of fat, 460 calories, & 1430mg of Sodium). Throw two pieces of chicken together, some bacon, sauce, and cheese in the middle, and you’ve got something that would make Jamie Oliver the opposite of proud. PS. There’s even a countdown clock for this!
Now, in the following commerical, you witness the Burger King breaking into McDonald’s headquarters to steal the recipe for the Sausage & Egg McMuffin. He is successful, and leaves without getting caught. Here’s the twist – It’s Burger King’s commercial! I actually kinda love, since it’s so in your face and they’re definitely pushing the limit and likely figured out what they could & couldn’t do. So, they want to introduce their own Sausage & Egg muffin (BK Breakfast Muffin Sandwich), saying, “It’s not that original, but it’s super affordable.”
I’m not gonna lie. I kind of like this in your face advertising between BK & the Golden Arch. I mean really, it is just a bun, egg, cheese, and sausage. No big secret there, Ronald.
