Burger King commercial

Sticking with the advertising theme, here's a Burger King commercial in which the product is apparently even more tempting than a (bizarrely sexualised) Red Riding Hood.

One of the topics we study in my fairy tale class is the frequent sexualization of the story. Have you ever seen the Tx Avery cartoons? I bet you have!

I have indeed! I love things that explore/exploit the sexual undertones of LRRH and other fairytales, from Tex Avery to Angela Carter! Still, this particular advert does take a particularly crass approach to it, I find. I assume you're familiar with Orenstein's Little Red Riding Hood Uncloaked?
