During my random browsing of the internet the other day I found this rather interesting flyer that immediately piqued my interest.
That’s right, to plug the new release of Windows 7, the Japanese arm of Microsoft decided that the best thing they could do was to get Burger King to sell a burger with no less than 7 patties in it. Not quite believing it was possible, I headed to the Burger King in Akihabara (a location that just seemed fitting for this kind of crazy) to try it out.
So I was presented with this:
My first thought was that it was nearly as big as the ruddy drink. Notice how they included a fork, BK is turning into Wimpy.
As I opened the wrapping I began to realise why the fork was included.
It would just not be possible to fit that into a human mouth. I stared at the challenge that laid before me, picked up the fork and began eating.
Here you can see that the burger is just your regular whopper (mayonnaise, lettuce, tomato, sliced onion, etc) but with six extra rather tasteless beef patties. It was at about this point during the eating process that I was beginning to realise that the chips I had bought were unnecessary.
And thus I was defeated. I just couldn’t manage any more. I felt bloated, full and slightly ill. Not sure that is the feeling Microsoft wanted to associate with Windows 7.
Also, just thought I’ll mention that when I got home I ate an apple. It was wonderful, I felt so relieved, uncluttered and free. It was like a breath of fresh air. I won’t ever go back to eating burgers again.
