Wow, one of my co-workers just sent this image out.  It’s totally awesome (IMHO)…

Edit: The image tag didn't work for some reason so I removed it and just left the link...

Bonus: The first Win7 ad: http://video.nytimes.com/video/2009/10/21/multimedia/1247465293593/an-ad-for-windows-7-from-microsoft.html#

 

  • Holy crap, I'm pretty sure that could kill a person! It's probably a good thing it's exclusive to Japan though (as far as I could read). Interesting advertisement and even more interesting comments while they were eating it!

  • It's no joke...

    The first 30 customers can buy this hamburger for 777 yen, while the rest pay 1400+. I wonder if this is nationwide, then again there are only 15 BK restaurants here.

  • Wow, I totally misunderstood the title of this thread!

    2.  A gross or blatant lie

    (I wasn't sure whether who was going to be lying about Windows 7, but it sounded interesting....)

  • That looks like a Vista Whopper. The Windows 7 Whopper is smaller, looks nicer, and is less bloated.

  • Some background info:

    - Akihabara is the big electronics-shopping district of Tokyo.

    - Beef is rather expensive in Japan (as are coffee, fruit juice, and many other things we Americans take for granted).

    - One yen is about 1.1 US cents, so 777 yen =~ $8.55.

  • @Dave,

    Vista Whopper should be shaped as a big hill (vista) made of ground beef.

  • Rough translation:

    10/22 Windows 7 Release Commemoration Burger

    (New Limited Time Offer)

    In 13 cm diameter American size buns, 7 approx 113g beef patties, excessive/luxurious and super giant burger!

    On sale 10/22-28

    Price for first 30 people each day: 777 yen (regular price 1450)

  • I take it that Windows 7 doesn't support the Big Mac, then?
