Burger King... er Kingons!

Brilliance once again from our friends at Crispin, Porter + Bogusky.

The Burger King Star Trek campaign is getting underway with the introduction of what may be the funniest promotion ever.
The offspring of an "alien encounter" between the Burger King and a Klingon woman (possibly when he showed up one morning in her bed with a breakfast sandwich as he likes to do, but didn't count on the aggressiveness of the species), the "Kingons" are here on Earth on a mission to collect all the Star Trek glasses.

The website "Kingon Defense Academy" which has just opened, has a series of hilarious training videos to help earthers learn the tactics of these glass-grabbing aliens: You have to visit it for a good laugh, I got a real "kick" out of it!
