Really? I’ve seen some far out eye makeup in my time, especially during Fashion Week, but this Dutch ad for Burger King is something else. When I first saw it, I thought it had to be an April Fool’s joke. But no. It’s a real marketing campaign.

Would any woman really want Whopper eyes (not to mention green mascara!)? I have to wonder how successful the campaign has been. Did they sell more Whoppers in the Netherlands as a result?

Can you imagine a guy sitting across from his Whopper-eyed date as he bites into a Whopper? Not to mention what Freud might say. As for me, in my opinion, this is just truly bizarre advertising.

Can’t disagree with you, Nicole! Readers, what do you think? -- AP

Looking at that eye makeup, why does the movie Avatar come to mind? I prefer eating a whopper, not wearing it.

Oh my... this does seem a bit extreme. But, it is an eye catcher and that's what they were looking for. I vote for the eating and not wearing, like Kathy said. Too funny!
