Comedian Pokes Fun at Mary J. Blige’s Burger King Commercial
Last week, Mary J. Blige received some backlash from critics for singing about crispy chicken wraps in a Burger King commercial. The ad was mostly criticized for perpetuating old stereotypes about blacks and their love for fried chicken. Although Burger King pulled the commercial from their YouTube channel, a slew of parody videos have been poking fun at MJB’s food gaffe.
Journalist-turned-comedian Chloé Hilliard released a hilarious parody video, mimicking the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul as she promotes her new remix album titled ‘Ultimate Chicken Collection.’ Among the songs featured on the LP include such finger-licking tunes as ‘Bar-B-Que,’ (a reworking of ‘Love No Limit’), ‘Chicken Parmesan’ (a remix of ‘Family Affair’) and the anthemic ‘Chicken’ (a flip of ‘Real Love’).
In addition to the album, fans will also receive MJB’s special jerk sauce. Yummy! All together, the limited-edition LP and jerk sauce will cost you 30 chicken bones. It’s kind of pricey, but it’s good for the soul, right?
All jokes aside, this is a funny parody video that will make you laugh. Hopefully, the real Mary J. Blige can overcome all of this Burger King drama and make a commercial that’s worthy for the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul.
