    The Top 10 creepiest fast food mascots

    http://www.fanpop.com/spots/legendary-ads/soapbox/56


    I don't eat much fast food anymore. Maybe it's because I read Fast Food Nation a few years back and that scared me off the chalupas and whoppers. Or it could be because the doctor told me to watch my fat intake and ease off the fried foods.

    When I really think about it though, those excuses are kinda lame. I think that the real reason I don't eat fast food is because fast food restaurants are doing their damndest to scare us away from their restaurants. I mean look at the weirdos they have peddling their food. Scary clowns? Creepy old men? Purple blobs? The fast food companies been subjecting us to these creeps for years, but recently the situation has become unbearable.

    So without further ado, I present to you my list of the 10 creepiest fast food mascots [note: I'm limiting the list to characters peddling goods for fast food outlets - I realize that the Kool Aid Man and Count Chocula are also disturbing, but that's for another list]:
    Guess who is number ONE, or do you really have to ask!

    I'm not surprised about 1st place. That one is creepy. They even made video games with him.

    #1 and #10 are the only ones that strike me as creepy really.

    I love those Quizno's hamster/rat things. Those commercials always made me laugh. As for the King ... if I woke up and saw him I'd just snatch the food and kick him out of my room ... LOL!

    I like the Jack commercials, but the King creeps me out totally. The original Ronald McDonald was pretty funny- whipped up in about 5 minutes, but funny. At least they referenced him in the commercial- now the characters are just their own thing, and the commercials ignore them.

    I haven't actually seen a lot of those mascots but I can see how they'd be creepy.

    The King is creepy but the Quizno's mascots were so weird that I just was totally creeped out by the commercial. My question is, how can executives approve that?

    I don't think any of them creep me out. I would say the King has me going "WTF" more than any of them, well except Ronald. But I LOVE Jack in the Box...love him! I love his commercials and he is funny.

    Those Quiznos rat/hamster things were the Sponge Monkeys. Quiznos horked them from www.rathergood.com.

    Re: The Top 10 creepiest fast food mascots

    Yeah, That Creepy ol' King was #1 on my creep list!

    I can't believe BK insists upon continued use of that
    to promote their food. I get nacious at the very thought
    of eating at BK, for fear that I'll have nightmares of that
    "Thing King" next to me in bed when I wake up.

    Food icons shouldn't make you sick to your stomach,
    THAT is not the way you want to get your attention
    or keep it, when you are advertising something that
    you want people to swallow.

    I agree with the #1 choice. In fact, I find that I actually tend to stay away from BK now that Creepy King is being used. Not on purpose. Guess it was just sublinimal commercial back-fire.

    As for Jack.. LOVE HIM!!!!

    Re: The Top 10 creepiest fast food mascots

    Worst ones that I have personly seen are the Quizno rats/hamster things...

    I don't know if Quiznos is any good or not, I'll never find out, those ads have made me permently avoid them....all I think of when I see a Quiznos sign is cooked rodent...Ewwww

    but the one that I had never seen before was the old school Ronald Mc D.

    that guy is creepy, but there "fixed" version, the one running thru the parking lot, I just kept thinking of Stephen Kings it, just waiting for the clown to run to the screen and talk to me..."they float, everything floats down here"...

    Yuck....

    and yet, I have a strong desire to go read IT again...I know the book is around here somewhere.....
