In a world of “multitasking”, how can you use your hands to do all your daily activities, and at the same time be able to enjoy a Whopper?
This is (roughly) the question posed at the beginning of Burger King’s latest ad, which posits the “Hands Free Whopper” as the solution to all of life’s problems. Whether you are playing the guitar, walking a bunch of dogs, or (ew) tattooing someone, this handy burger holder is the perfect solution to all your whopper supporting needs.
As you can see, the Hands Free Whopper is elegant in its simplicity and fits onto your shoulders just like a harmonica holder, only way more delicious. Unfortunately for the majority of Whopper lovers, though, this wondrous invention has thus far only been available in Puerto Rico, where the company gave out 50 of them (only 50?!) to reward customer loyalty as part of the company’s 50th anniversary celebration. This momentous occasion was commemorated by a cute commercial (above) presumably designed to make everyone without a hands free Whopper feel jealous of those with them. There’s also a website where you can see how the Hands Free Whopper is made. (Via 3D printer…neat!)
Do I, a vegan, condone the use of the hands free Whopper to eat actual Whoppers? Hells no. But I’ve never met a food gadget I didn’t like, so by hook or by crook, I hope to someday obtain one of these so that I might sacrilegiously eat a veggie burger out of it. In the immortal syntax of Homer Simpson: Mmmm, multitasking.
