There’s picture proof that Burger King’s hot dogs look just as bad as they sound.
On Monday, a user amusingly named “jaredfromsubway” posted a picture of Burger King’s so-called “grilled dogs” much to the disgust of everyone on viral photo-sharing site Imgur. Judging by the photo, Burger King should have stuck to the Whopper.
The picture has collected 3.1 million views and more than one thousand comments from people worried about the poster’s well being.
“Well why would you go and do something like that,” reads the top-voted comment. Another person renamed it “diarrhea dog,” while another politely asked “jaredfromsubway” if they could have taken a picture of it before you barfed it back up onto the bun?” On the positive side, a commenter pointed out that at least it has more cheese compared to the ads.
A day later, another user posted a response with a picture of Burger King’s new “Philly Cheeseburger,” which looks just as unappetizing. It collected 1.6 million views.
Burger King didn’t immediately respond for comment, perhaps because it’s also busy puking.
