Trolling an Ad that hacks Google Home with Burgers made from 100% Rat and Toenail Clippings

Burger King hat vor ein paar Stunden das Commercial oben online gestellt, das Google Home per Sprachsteuerung aktiviert („OK Google“) und Wikipedias Whopper-Seite vorlesen lässt („what is a Whopper-Burger?“) Und da Wikipedias Whopper-Seite editierbar ist, liest Google Home nun lecker Burger-Rezepte wie diese hier vor: „The Whopper is a burger, consisting of a flame-grilled patty made with 100% rat and toenail clippings“.

Schönes Bit von Gizmodo dazu: „Interestingly, those vandals are just following Burger King’s lead. According to the article’s revision history, the Burger King Corporation edited the page itself earlier this month to claim that the sandwich is 'also known as America’s favorite burger' and that 'Whopper and America’s Favorite Burger are trademarks of Burger King Corporation.'“

Hier die Revision History, die haben die Seite mittlerweile geschützt, bevor sie auf unter anderem auf Adult Swim, History, Spike, Comedy Central und MTV ausgestrahlt wird.

Some of the best edits, intended to be spoken aloud across the country once the ad triggered viewers’ Google Homes, have been:

  • “The Whopper is a burger, consisting of a flame-grilled patty made with 100% rat and toenail clippings with no preservatives or fillers, topped with sliced tomatoes, onions, lettuce, pickles, ketchup, and mayonnaise, served on a sesame-seed bun.”
  • “The ‘Whopper’ is a cancer-causing hamburger product sold by the international fast-food restaurant chain Burger King.”
  • “The Whopper is a burger, consisting of a flame-grilled patty made with 100% medium-sized child with no preservatives or fillers, topped with sliced tomatoes, onions, lettuce, pickles, ketchup, and mayonnaise, served on a sesame-seed bun.”
  • “The ‘Whopper’ is the worst hamburger product sold by the international fast-food restaurant chain Burger King.”
  • “The Whopper is a burger, consisting of a flame-grilled patty made with 100% medium-sized child with no preservatives or fillers, topped with sliced tomatoes, onions, lettuce, cyanide, pickles, ketchup, and mayonnaise, served on a sesame-seed bun.”
  • “[The Whopper] has undergone several reformulations including resizing and bread changes, yet it remains far inferior to the Big Mac.”
  • “The Whopper is a burger, consisting of a flame-grilled patty made with 100% medium-sized child with no preservatives or fillers, topped with sliced tomatoes, onions, lettuce, cyanide, pickles, ketchup, and mayonnaise, served on a sesame-seed bun.”

[update] „Burger King, which did not work with Google on the ad, said Google appeared to make changes by Wednesday afternoon that stopped the commercial from waking the devices, in what amounted to an unusual form of corporate warfare in the living room.“
