Burger King used clip of pop artist Andy Warhol eating a Whopper for its Super Bowl LIII

"Out of Super Bowl LIII's 56 commercials this year, the only ad with an LGBT presence was Burger King's spot, "#EatLikeAndy", featuring Andy Warhol eating a Whopper for nearly a minute. The film was a visual narrative of iconic scenes that represent American reality.

"I still remember the first time I watched the complete length of the film of Andy Warhol eating a Burger King Whopper, and my head exploded", Fernando Machado, Burger King's global chief marketing officer, told AdAge.

The press release says the commercial is also meant to give people a break from the action-packed Super Bowl ads they're used to.

The Whopper, for years also known as America's Favorite Burger®.

"What's great about this this country is that America started the tradition where the richest consumers buy essentially the same things as the poorest", Warhol said, adding that "a Coke is a Coke, and no amount of money can get you a better Coke than the one the bum on the corner is drinking".

Portis has certainly shown enough to be worth a trial run, and the future second-rounder definitely sweetens the return. Svi Mykhailiuk is the exact type of player that Chicago should be going after before the trade deadline.

And just like that, Andy Warhol's 15 minutes of fame now includes a Super Bowl commercial.

According to Doordash Help Center, the mystery box contents can vary, but are valued at approximately $30.

The footage simply shows Warhol unwrapping a Burger King Whopper and dipping it in some ketchup, while BK encourages viewers to #EatLikeAndy. Other fees (including service fee), taxes, and gratuity still apply. "Mystery Box will be shipped via Fedex to the address to which the corresponding Burger King order was delivered and may arrive 7-10 days after order is placed". The original Home of The Whopper the Burger King system operates more than 17,000 locations in more than 100 countries and US territories.

And for those who thought that Warhol's choosing Burger King since McDonald's wasn't available was a less than desirable choice, the fast food chain had a statement that quickly settled the conversation.
