Rediculous Food Commercials

  • 1
LOCKED DISCUSSION

Will somebody please teach Popeye's advertising team how to freaking COOK????

Complaint #1; the newest commercial about "chicken tenderloins". She claims to "slow marinade, hand BATTER, and fry them up crispy" (exact quote).
Excuse me, but the chicken at Popeye's is BREADED not BATTERED.
Ok, small technicality. Easy mistake. BUT....

Complaint #2; The previous commercial about "Cracked Pepper Butterfly Shrimp" (remember the name,it's important). ,She opens by saying "I'm gonna give you one of MY cooking secrets, but you better keep a lid on it, alright? Cracked peppercorn. That is the secret behind my new cracked pepper butterfly shrimp!"
Ok, not only has she failed to convince me that she is sharing this secret with only ME, but not the other 50 million people ALSO watching that particular TV channel at that particular moment, but if you TRULY want to keep the pepper a secret ingredient then DON'T PUT IT IN THE FREAKING NAME OF THE DISH!!!!!

Here are the links to the two commercials in case you haven't seen these little gems.
