Stupid But True: Burger King Explains Why Net Neutrality Repeal Sucks, With Whoppers

I don’t know about you, but after watching this video where Burger King schools customers and viewers on Net Neutrality, I’ve got a hankering for a Whopper. The big burger brand has decided to put their slick marketing minds behind educating the public about what the repeal of Net Neutrality actually means in real-world terms. The result is something worth your time.

“The Whopper actually taught me about Net Neutrality, it’s stupid but true,” was the last line of the video from a frustrated customer forced to wait in the “slow lane” for his burger.

But there is nothing stupid about Burger King’s Whopper Neutrality video. It’s something the Burger King called “a social experiment that explains the repeal of Net Neutrality by putting it in terms anyone can understand: a Whopper sandwich.” And it’s brilliant.

According to the YouTube post of the video, which has already racked up more than a million views, the video features actual guests.

Our favorite part? The shot of “The King” drinking out of an enormous Reese’s mug just like the one FCC Chairman Ajit Pai is often seen with. It’s also worth mentioning this video absolutely slays Pai’s own attempt at clever video messaging about Net Neutrality which just made him come off like a creep.

In addition to the education and the sick burn, watching these people realize their being told a Whopper costs $26 is a pretty amazing roller coaster ride. Let’s hope they eventually got their Whoppers on the house.

Please enjoy.
