Last year, to promote their new breakfast menu, Burger King released a television commercial that featured a pillowcase with their new breakfast menu on one side and The King’s face on the other. You can read more about the pillowcase here and here. That pillowcase was available for a short time and yours truly pulled out the plastic and purchased two of them.
When I received them several weeks later, I opened one and put it on my pillow. After five minutes of resting my head on it, I realized how stupid of an impulsive buy it was. First off, the pillowcase is white, so all the drooling I do while sleeping will easily stain it. Secondly, I can’t practice my kissing with this pillow because it’s as if I’m making out with The King. I could flip it over and practice kissing the other side with the breakfast menu, but to me it would feel like I’m kissing the back of The King’s neck. Thirdly, the pillowcases aren’t made using 1000 thread count Egyptian cotton.
Anyhoo, after putting them in the back of my dresser, I forgot about them. But I remembered I had them after learning about Burger King’s makeover and The King’s demise. Since one of the pillowcases is still in its original sealed packaging and I’m never going to open it, I thought I should give it away to a lucky Impulsive Buy reader.
