Burger King Russia Is Sorry For Offering Free Whoppers To Women Who Get Pregnant By World Cup Players
Have you ever bitten into a fat-fried meat patty from Burger King and thought to yourself: “I should get pregnant by an athlete?” Me too.
To celebrate the World Cup going on right now over in Russia, the Russian Burger King VK account (the Russian equivalent of Facebook) decided to encourage the good women of the the country to spread the love. And probably the syphilis.
Ad Week says that Burger King posted on VK, suggesting Russian women should try as hard as possible to get knocked up by one of the athletes currently kicking around balls on the grass. I’m not going to lie, there are going to be people doing that anyway honey, you won’t need to tell ’em. Burger King deleted the promo, but you can see it below (if you can read Russian, that is):

Don’t worry people, the reasoning behind the message was a good one. Burger King Russia wanted “the best football genes” to “ensure the success of the Russian team for generations to come.” Which is of course how genetics works. And did you know the secondary job description of Burger King? Apart from selling food high in sodium, they also apparently take care of athletic recruiting for national teams. How multipurpose.
They offered 3 million Russian rubles (which is only around $47,000 in American money) and a lifetime of free Whoppers. If these women actually ate those free Whoppers, that lifetime would last a maximum of three years.
This same Russian Burger King account also once posted an ad mocking the victim of a national rape case, so they’re a mess. I think the lesson here is Russians should stick to what they know, since advertising is clearly not a forte. Now, election meddling? They’re great at that! Get some of those Russian bots trending #MyWorldCupPregnancy2018! That’ll do it!
