Burger King launches cologne line entitled "Flame"

Come on now, you know you all want it

*note-tennislover23 found this and sent it to me since she was on her way to bed at the time

A Whopper of a Cologne

By Yahoo! Buzz

Flickr photo: Helga's Lobster Stew

Ladies, there was a reason you waited until the week before the holidays to shop for your man. The perfect gift has arrived in the form of eau de Burger King.

Yes, a body spray from Burger King, called Flame. This is not some gimmick to incite PETA members into a frothing frenzy. It is, however, a Whopper of a holiday item, something not seen the since the kung fu hamster, the kind of uplifting news tidbit that perks up reporters and bloggers who would otherwise have to write about a lousy economy and green wrapping ideas from found objects.

Bemused searchers have fired up queries for "burger king cologne" (+284%), "burger king flame" and "flame cologne" — and yes, 58 percent of those intrigued are males. The allure has captivated the attention of people across the pond: The Guardian dutifully quoted the company line that Flame by BK is "the scent of seduction with a hint of flame-broiled meat." For a whopping $3.99, the spray can be purchased in New York City at Ricky's or online through Burger King's cheeky site, FireMeetsDesire.

Not only did the cologne concept not get the marketing guy canned, but apparently BK has fully embraced the kitsch horror of it all. Visit the site, and a Barry White-like voice cajoles one to "Come on, baby, give it a spray." Clicking on the "spray" brings up various disturbing images, including one of the Burger King king, seemingly naked except for a strategically placed blanket and lying atop a faux bear rug before a flaming fireplace.

Warning: Satire does have its limits. It's difficult to discern what's less appetizing: the King patting and rubbing the faux fur suggestively, or his frozen mask that makes him look like a movie slasher villain on the prowl.

So far, the fast-food chain hasn't made any moves to station perky perfume ladies at the door, spritzing customers with atomizers. The real question remains: Will men find they can have it their way when they don the body spray, or will it backfire by only attracting other men and slavering dogs? (Unless, of course, that is the intention.)

The proof of course lies in the proboscis. One Ricky's manager claims the odor is reminiscent of "Axe body spray, TAG and this YSL cologne I have." (But then again, the guy has to unload the stuff.) The Boston Herald assaulted willing natives, and elicited comments like "nice," "too heavy," and "smells like cinnamon...I'd buy it for my brother." In one investigative CNN report, one sniffer compared the scent to gasoline.

The limited signature edition has already received the buzz it didn't deserve (we plead guilty). And yes, the question on everyone's minds: Is there a french fry body wash to go with that? No, you may have to wait for Valentine's Day for that one. In the meantime, you're just going to go back to dabbing a fry behind each ear.

Re: Burger King launches cologne line entitled "Flame"

Can you imagine asking someone, "what cologne are you wearing?" and they responded "Burger King's Flame"? I'd probably smack them across the face.

It'd be more embarrassing if you were to say 'you smell nice' or 'you taste good' as I tend to.

If that someone were to turn around and then tell me it's BK Flame, I'd smack myself across the face !

Maybe I should start enquiring about cologne.

Re: Burger King launches cologne line entitled "Flame"

The idea of a perfume with the scent of a Burger King doesn't really do it for me, I'm afraid. The scent of Chicken Tikka Masala or Beef Golash I might find intriguing, but Burger King? No thanks.
