It was in 2001 that America met the Subservient Chicken, a massive creature of the avian variety that lived to cluck, peck seed from the ground with his giant beak, and take orders. No matter how outlandish, the Subservient Chicken was up to the task. Want to see him jump rope? He liked the exercise. Would he dance the Robot? He did, and well. Read a book? Hey, just because he’s a chicken doesn’t mean he’s illiterate!
But stardom has a heavy cost for all, and that includes giant birds amenable to suggestion. The money stopped coming, and the jobs became more humiliating; children’s birthday parties, buying booze for teenagers, taking a dive at cockfights he could easily win. Things were looking bleak for the chicken, and it was all he could do to stay one step ahead of the deep fat fryer.
That was a year ago. Thanks to a chance encounter, the Subservient Chicken has unruffled his feathers and is not just back, but better than ever.
There’s a catch. The Subservient Chicken, after years of taking orders, is now marching to the beat of his own drum. Inspired by how Burger King’s customer always seem to have it their way, the Subservient Chicken has a new outlook, and has things his way. With this change in philosophy comes a change in name: the Subservient Chicken is now the Chicken King.
The Chicken King is marking his triumphant return to the hearts of consumers everywhere with a new sandwich, the Chicken Big King. This sandwich has both the classic great taste and the bold attitude you’d come to expect from Burger King ever since the Subservient Chicken’s original arrival announced that Burger King played by its own rules. So stop in to Burger King and have it your way, because if the Subservient Chicken can become a King, you can, too.
The Chicken Big King comes loaded with two crispy chicken patties, melted cheese, lettuce, pickles, onions, and zesty King Sauce, all served between three buns. It’s $3.59 at participating Burger King locations, and is part of their two for $5 menu alongside the Big King Sandwich, Original Chicken Sandwich, and Big Fish Sandwich.
