Spoof ‘Whopper Virgins’ Ad Sparks Usual Sense of Humour Failure

Two weeks ago, the satirical NBC show Saturday Night Live ran a video, a spoof of the controversial Burger King Whopper Virgins Ad.

Cue the usual overreaction in the Romanian press (albeit weeks late). Evenimentul Zilei (again; it gets worse…) today claims on its website (see below) that “a new, controversial Burger King ad, presented during the TV show Saturday Night Live on NBC, again makes fun of people from the Maramures village of Budesti, portraying them as semi-wild and incestuous.”

It does not. The ad is a spoof. You know, comedy?
