Quote:A new Burger King TV commercial is designed to trigger Google’s voice-controlled speakers in viewers’ homes, adding a wrinkle to the debate over whether such devices have become too invasive.

In the 15-second ad, a Burger King employee says, “OK, Google. What is the Whopper burger?” If viewers are watching the commercial near a Google Home gadget, the “OK, Google” prompt will cause the device to read the Wikipedia entry for the sandwich. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/...ce-devices

But then Google censors it.

Quote:Google shuts down Burger King's cunning TV ad
Just under three hours after Burger King unveiled a new advertisement designed to hijack your Google Home to read a long-winded description of its Whopper burger, Google has disabled the functionality. It was fun / horrifying while it lasted!

What exactly is this whopper, and why is Google censoring teh search results? This is the conspiracy of the year people.

damned.gif The really crazy part for me is getting my head around the reason some people have their devices turned on in listening mode 24/7. 13.gif

What a marketing gimmick. Google didn't much care for it obviously.

Agreed. It was ğkking brilliant. But Google will only allow advertising they get paid for.
