Humorous or Tacky?

Well, it seems that subtlety is dead.

Burger King just released their new print ad for their "BK Super Seven Incher." The small print at the bottom reads, "Fill your desire for something long, juicy and flame-grilled with the NEW BK SUPER SEVEN INCHER. Yearn for more after you taste the mind-blowing burger that comes with a single beef patty, topped with American cheese, crispy onions and the A1 Thick and Hearty Steak Sauce."

So, my question is this: Are ads like these humorous or tacky? And regardless, are they effective? Are you craving the new burger now?

It does look pretty tasty....

This is soo stupid. I can't believe BK has gone this far to sell their food. They are trying wayyyy too hard and this ad is proof.

haha, I like how the "sauce" on her face was added and "blow" is in quotations. Pretty ridic
