As you may have heard, Burger King is nixing their TV commercials featuring the giant-headed, speechless King in favor of showcasing the actual food. Many people were either put off by or completely creeped out by the King, but he never bothered me. That's because I remember the King when he was human, spoke, sang, and even performed magic. Don't believe me? Take a look!
Here are several commercials featuring not only the King, but several characters, including the curmudgeonly Duke of Doubt, designed to compete with the phenomenonally popular McDonald's characters. They existed for a good five years or so, yet very few people seem to remember them today. Enjoy! Also, take a look at past Burger King commercials I've posted here (well, at least those YouTube hasn't pulled).
