Billy Eichner has made both a successful and funny career out of screaming at people on the street, so it’s understandable when his turf gets threatened. Especially by a company as unfunny (and unsuccessful, recently) as Burger King. Billy bit back with this Tweet:

As you can see in the clip, Burger King employs someone who looks and sounds a lot like Eichner to market its suspiciously cheap chicken nuggets to the masses. At first glance, I actually thought that this ad starred Eichner. Even though it’s not him, they ad definitely lifts his schtick.

None of this had happened if Burger King had used cows to sell its chicken, just like Chik-Fil-A.

To compare that ad to Eichner’s stuff, take a look at Billy on the Street here.

From the “Why Not Post This” Dept. comes this video for Burger King starring (apparently former) movie star Clive Owen. I don’t remember much from high school Spanish, but the video features a dapper Owen walking through various luxurious locations while, and again, I’m rusty, but I think he’s saying “Hello, I’m Clive Owen. Have you been to one of those Burger King places? They’re OK.”

It’s not totally unheard of for big movie stars to do commercials overseas, usually on the condition that they never be seen in the United States (hello, Internet). Still, this seems like a step down for Clive Owen, who nevertheless has a big slate of films coming up for 2012. Hopefully things will look up for the guy – I’d hate to run into him at Burger King, that would be really uncomfortable for everyone. (The Playlist)
