In anticipation of the new Twilight movie, Twilight: More Twilight, Burger King has launched an advertising campaign in which people (read: children, and dangerously lonely adults) can express which “team” they are on: Team Edward or Team Jacob. Neat! There is nothing that I love more than combining a hokey, adolescent vampire-werewolf feud based on books written for half-literate virgins with EATING CHEAP HAMBURGERS. The above is a still from one of the new commercials (via NYT). As you can see, those little girls are arguing over who is better: the 300-year-old pervert or the forest creature prone to fits of violent rage. But what is that old man saying/thinking? “My hip!” probably. “Oh no, my hip!”
