Burger King Unveils “Flame” Meat Scented Body Spray
Want to attract women? Want to please the woman in your life? Burger King has a solution:

Looking to beef up your mojo this holiday season?
Burger King Corp. may have just the thing. The home of the Whopper has launched a new men’s body spray called “Flame.” The company describes the spray as “the scent of seduction with a hint of flame-broiled meat.”
The fragrance is on sale at New York City retailer Ricky’s NYC in stores and online for a limited time for $3.99.
Burger King is marketing the product through a Web site featuring a photo of its King character reclining fireside and naked but for an animal fur strategically placed to not offend.
The marketing ploy is the latest in a string of viral ad campaigns by the company. Burger King is also in the midst of its Whopper Virgins campaign that features an taste test with fast-food “virgins” pitting the Whopper against McDonald’s Corp.’s Big Mac.
If this turns on 21st century women, will a french-fry smelling body scent be far behind? And perhaps we’ll see copy cat products like this:
—“LOTS OF TOPPINGS”: A new seductive pizza-like body scent…from Pizza Hut.
—“THE CHICAGO WAY”: Entice women with the turn-on smell of an extra long Chicago hot dog with sauerkraut suggesting a spicy relationship that’s sure to be a gas..from Wienerschnitzel.
—“THE CHOSEN LOVER” (one I would have liked to have gotten on my bar mitzvah): Wear the scent of being the chosen one by using body spray containing a whisper of the aroma of chopped liver, belly lox and kreplach…from Manischewitz.
—“REFRIED LOVE”: Turn on women with a body spray containing the sexually arousing smell of refried beans…from Taco Bell.
