If you’re a normal netizen, you know advertisements are a necessary evil. They keep the internet free, so you can listen to Ylvis for hours on end while hate-watching clips from How I Met Your Mother. But that doesn’t make them any less annoying.
Burger King understands your pain.
According to AdWeek, the fast food burger chain partnered with New Zealand-based agency Colenso BBDO to create 64 different YouTube ads parodying annoying YouTube ads. A promotional video by StopPress reveals each spot ties in to the video it appears before, by showing a pair of guys sympathizing with viewers who are “just trying to watch” screaming goats, Anchorman 2 trailers, or North Korean babies playing the guitar:
“Ugh, stupid incredible deal,” they say.
Unfortunately, we were unable to find any of the ads actually on YouTube, even after changing our country setting to New Zealand, so it’s hard to tell whether or not they’re real. But if you do spot them in the wild, let us know? The world needs more satirical meta.
