I really think offering a life times supply of burgers to anyone who gets themselves up the duff by a World Cup Star is a little bit beyond what might be thought of as good ethics. Do advertisers have any kind of grip on reality?
"Get impregnated by World Cup stars and win free Whoppers, says Burger King
Burger King’s Russian division has apologized for a social media campaign offering
free burgers for life to women who get pregnant by football players."

What relation could this possibly have to my thread about Yemen?
Surely, this promotion could be criticized for being sexist and ageist, appealing only to
women of child-bearing age. It reinforces the trope that, after winning on the sports
field or the battlefield, victorious men should expect sexual access to women as a prize.
