Snopes Again

I have sung the praises of before because of the diligence with which the site debunks internet hoaxes. Here are two really weird internet ads I found through snopes (thanks to AlexK for the pointer).

This first one takes a LOOOOnnnnnggg time to load. As Alex says, wait for it to load, watch it, and then read the text. [warning: not everyone will think it is in good taste -- it reminds me of the VW bug ad that said, "If Ted Kennedy had been driving one of these he'd be president today"].

The second one appears to be a real Burger King ad, called "the subservient chicken".
