Burger King’s Fake ‘Hands Free Whopper’ is Your Next Million Dollar Idea [VIDEO]

Why try to end America’s obesity problem, when you can you can profit from it?

To celebrate their 50th anniversary in Puerto Rico, Burger King created a commercial debuting a new product called the “Hands Free Whopper”, which essentially was some sort of plastic contraption that hangs around your neck featuring a “burger holder” so your hands are free to do whatever while you enjoy your Whopper. Much like a musician who uses a harmonica holder so he/she can also play guitar.

*Note: They supposedly created an English version of the commercial, but I couldn’t find it, so you’ll have to deal with the Spanish version. Sorry.

The commercial created quite the buzz on the interwebs after its debut last week, with several news outlets, bloggers, and the like weighing on whether this was the evolution of fast food in the multi-tasking world we live in, or the further decline of civilization.

But alas, it was neither as Burger King revealed yesterday that it was nothing more than a publicity stunt.

My question is, “does it have to be?” Perhaps the “Hands Free Whopper” holder is the next  million dollar idea waiting for the right person to snatch it up. Think about it, in this go-go-go world we live in where people are busier than ever, trying to accomplish multiple tasks at once, a hands free food contraption could be the next big thing.

And why stop there? Why not start a restaurant specializing in hands free dining? You could call it “Trough’s”, replacing tables with long metal troughs where customers orders are simply dumped in front of them by the wait staff, allowing them to get some work done, check social media, whatever while stuffing their face full of chicken, beef, pork, whatever, and all the fixin’s.

On second thought, maybe that’s not such a great idea.
