2014's fast food atrocities
Burger King's black cheeseburger: Made with squid ink and bamboo charcoal, arguably a symbol of meat's destructive effect on the planet. Only available in Japan.
How many movies can you name where a character wheels around to his companion and seethes, “You just don’t get it, do you?”
I gave myself ten minutes on this project, and was only able to come up with the first clip from this supercut, “Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery.” If it hadn’t been for supercut sensation Jeff Smith (seriously, check out all his Vimeo creations … this guy has compiled everything), I might never have noticed how prevalent “cinema’s worst writing cliché” was in modern film. Take a look:
A fun game is to try to count the amount of times this line is used on/by Dennis Hopper, Marisa Tomei, and every unknown actor who has tried to make it in Hollywood by starring in a straight-to-DVD action film.
What’s your favorite cliched movie phrase? Mine is “You’re not going to shoot me” (usually followed up by the inevitable “…because the safety’s still on!”): if someone would like to make a supercut of that in the near future, I’d be really grateful.
Domino's Specialty Chicken: It's like regular pizza, except instead of a crust, there's fried chicken. The company's marketing officer calls it "one of the most creative, innovative menu items we have ever had” -- brain power put to good use.
KFC'S ZINGER DOUBLE DOWN KING: A sandwich made by adding a burger patty to the infamous chicken-instead-of-buns creation can only be described using all caps. NO BUN ALL MEAT. Only available in South Korea.
Taco Bell's Waffle Taco: It took two years for Taco Bell to develop this waffle folded in the shape of a taco, the stand-out star of its new breakfast menu.
Krispy Kreme Triple Cheeseburger: Only attendees at the San Diego County Fair were given the opportunity to taste the official version of this donut-hamburger-heart attack combo. The rest of America has reasonable odds of not dropping dead tomorrow.
Taco Bell's Quesarito: A burrito wrapped in a quesadilla inside an enigma. Quarantined to one store in Oklahoma City.
