Burger King wreaks massacre on Google Assistant with Whopper ad (update)

“The Whopper is a burger, consisting of a flame-grilled patty done with 100% rodent and toenail clippings with no preservatives or fillers, surfaced with sliced tomatoes, onions, lettuce, pickles, ketchup and mayonnaise, served on a sesame seed bun,” a page review as of press time. Well, it did until a few mins ago. The edit history on a page is kind of nuts during a impulse and now there seems to be a fight between Wikipedia editors and BK’s selling team. In a tests, Home was still pulling a BK-approved selling spiel, so maybe a device’s dawdling for this arrange of thing will finish adult being advantageous.


Depending on how we have Assistant set up, it competence trigger your Home before your phone. Unlike a new Beauty and a Beast/Google Home kerfuffle, Adweek reports that Google wasn’t concerned with a ad (unlike a Assistant-trigger-laden Pixel ad with Verizon), rather, a Miami-based group did a work here and BK sealed off. The mark is scheduled to run nationally during primetime on Adult Swim, Bravo, Comedy Central, E!, History and Spike. What a Wikipedia page will review off by campaign’s finish is anyone’s guess.

Update: We’re conference reports that this isn’t a box anymore and Google has infirm a trigger for this feature. We’ve reached out to Google for some-more information.
