  1. Bruce Jenner?

    Man, I don’t remember Sir Shakes A Lot. I liked Burger King then and now (I liked Burger Chef and Red Barn better, though…remember those?), but somehow that character didn’t leave an impression with me.

    1. That’s it! I much prefer him on CHiPs than on that Kardashian circus!
      I do remember Burger Chef, and I do remember liking that one better. I had never heard of Red Barn though. I remembered that Sir Shakes-A-Lot when I watched the commercial again. Burger King tried competing with McDonalds with their characters. Now all Burger King has is that creepy king with the giant head.

      1. All I know is that he’s related to them somehow…and that’s all I want to know.

        That Christmas commercial you found was fantastic! What an all-star lineup.

        Red Barn was probably more of a Midwest thing. It was great, though. They had three mascots, but I haven’t found video of them yet…just this commercial with people in it:

  2. Oh, I remember seeing those Red Barns before! Maybe it was when we went on vacation in Pennsylvania. I had an instant flashback as soon as I saw the sign, but I can’t remember exactly where or when. It was either that Pennsylvania trip, or are road trip down to Tennessee.
