    Emo Parents Protest burger king star wars toys.

    God, I saw this on the news and it really pissed me off. Some parents are protesting burger kings star wars happy meal toys. They say it promotes the new movie which they dont like because its not suited for kids. Crap when I went and saw star wars, i saw kids of all ages at the show. I mean if they feel this way they should just not let their kids buy the toys. I mean who are they to try to take it away from ppl who dont think in extremes like they do. [/rant]

    These emo parents are a pet peve of mine. *Sighs* :Thumbd:

    The thing is, Episode III is rated PG-13. How many 13 year olds (and older) buy happy meals??? So why is Burger King marketing to kids younger then the suggested viewing age... (That is, besides the $$$...)
    FAVOURITE THREADS EXPLAIN why, or risk an infraction.

    big deal. even if it's rated PG-13, u can watch it with parent supervision.

    besides, don't lie now, how many of u actually waited til 18, before u saw boobs. seriously, the ratings are just guidance.

    Do they need another reason?

    Seriously though, Burger King has marketed every other movie. It's possible they have a contract or something. After all, what would the movie release be ike without the Burger King collectable glasses? (Yes, I'm being sarcastic.)

    AD Week
    The Miami-based chain has tied its marketing to the Star Wars films since the first one was introduced in 1977. The company produced collectible drinking glasses for each of the movies, but this is the first time it has extended the promotion globally.

    "Star Wars is a brand recognized by people of all ages from around the world and the global release of Revenge of the Sith on May 19 presented a unique opportunity for us to bring the thrill of Star Wars to Burger King restaurants worldwide," said Russ Klein, the company's chief marketing officer. "We're sure the promotion will create a lot of excitement among our customers."
    Really, it's all about the money. Why would you think otherwise?


    As for the parents protesting, they need to chill, or stop buying kids meals. I can't count the number of toys my kids have gotten that I didn't necessarily feel to be appropriate. I mean really, Spiderman? Like I'm going to let my 6 and under kids watch that. You just wait for them to break it and then throw it away when their not looking, or break it yourself. Problem solved.
