French's vs. Burger King vs. A-1


French's vs. Burger King vs. A-1


How is this possible? Three commercials running at the same time with the same concept? Face lickin' good it ain't.

Superadgrunts, click read more to see how many licks it takes to get to the center of a badlander.

Of course, a big adgeek thanks goes to Claymore for finding all these spots!


Let's not also forget Dave Chappelle as Rick James licking the whole side of some woman's face.

It's a celebration, bitches!

It's a face-licking epidemic!! Sexy when a woman does it to a guy... but vile and degrading when a guy licks a woman's face.

The lick that Steve Martin gave Bernadette Peters in "The Jerk" is still the finest examply of this behavior, methinks.

I've been waiting for this badland for a bit. Thanks for finally putting it up, guys.

In the danger of being a jerk and idiot I don't really see the very clear connection between A-1 and the other two... but the BK-ad is more of "fantasy of the office-g33ks" than anyone of the other and also work the feeling of "shit, I was caught!".

Yeah, A-1 doesn't really have a clear connection with BK and French's...but it's pretty close anyway......if only the A-1 guy had used his tongue instead of his fork.....

Danger! Danger! No... wait. You're fine.

All three are centered around a bit of condiment on the face - mayo, mustard and steak sauce. All three have that bit of condiment removed by a member of the opposite sex, two by licking and one by poking with a forkful o' steak.

Dat's dat.

BurgerKing wins. Solid campaign vs one-offs.

Call me crazy, but I think whoever "wins" should be whoever came up with the idea first. I know that Burger King's commercial is new; how old are the other two? The irony, of course, is that Burger King's "solid" campaign is essentially just a rip-off of "The Office." (Check out the article in "The Guardian" for Ricky Gervais' thoughts on the matter.) Still, the subservient chicken rocks.

Thanks... then I can feel superior again ;)
