Background

The commercials premiered during Super Bowl XL and featured the King orchestrating a Broadway-style show, reminiscent of The Rockettes' Shows, featuring women dressed as burger condiments and toppings. The King is featured "directing" the show.[1][2][3] The commercial was shot in a warehouse in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. It took a total of five days to complete the shooting of it.[4] Brooke Burke was cast as the role of the Top Bun in this commercial.[5]

Virtual interaction

After the commercials were over, the audience had the ability to go onto The Whopperettes website and create their own show. The website allows the user to enter their name and what condiments they prefer on their Whopper, and once they finish that, they can watch their show that they customized to their liking.[6][7]
