The Postal Service gets its way at Burger King


Listen up, people: Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor even the temptation of a yummy breakfast shall keep mail carriers from their appointed rounds.

And anyone who suggests differently may be hearing from U.S. Postal Service lawyers.

Burger King found that out the hard way after airing a television ad geared around a fictitious carrier who sang: “With pancakes and eggs on my plate, the mail has to wait,” according to an article posted on a USPS site.

That didn’t sit well with the Postal Service, which probably has enough problems without the insinuation that your high-priority package is gathering dust as a USPS employee chows down. The attorneys swung into action and–the article said–Burger King agreed to broadcast a revised commercial that also portrays a pseudo delivery person, but in “a more positive manner” and in a uniform without the trademark USPS eagle logo.
