    Anybody else see that commercial and sort of get the "heebie jeebies" when watching it?

    I did and couldnt figure out why it bugged me until a couple days ago.

    In the commercial they have that big giant chicken being ridden by a cowboy Rodeo style, while the song is being sung, to mellow keyboard accompanyment, in sort of a mellow way, to the words...

    "Big... bucking...chicken. You are big, and you...are... bucking"

    When I heard it the last time, I realised that it sounds remarkably similar to a very popular praise and worship song from a while back, I think by Don Moen, that goes...

    "You... are...God, and you... are...Lord..."

    Anyone else notice that similarity? I noticed it, I guess because I have a lot of praise and worship CD's, and I really did pick up on the similarity. The melody. The way the keyboards are played and the song is sung. It sounds almost like a parody of that song, or that style praise and worship music.

    If anyone else noticed it, what do you think? Are you offended by it? Or do you see it as a compliment?

    Or do you think I have way too much free time on my hands? :D [​IMG]

    If true, there will be a lawsuit.

    Moving this to the music forum. [​IMG]

    I've never heard the Don Moen song. I don't listen to Christian rock :rolleyes: We have seen the commercial several times. It's so stupid, we can't help but sing along.

    Yes, if it can be proven that an Integrity Hossana! Praise Chorus has been abused in this way there will be a lawsuit...

    One of the stated reason for Christian Copyrights is so that the original intent can not be changed or the song misrepresented...

    If there is no action by Integrity Music...

    Then I will seriously doubt that they are not profit motivated because such a lack of action would imply they gave permission at a price...

    Though completely pointless, this commercial is catchy.

    I asked the subservient chicken if he is the big buckin' chicken and he bowed. I guess they are one in the same. ;)

    I noticed it sounds like a praise chorus. I don't know if it is really that similar to the song you mentioned, I can't fit it in my head, but I haven't really listened to praise choruses since I got out of college. I don't know if it's modeled on that praise chorus in particular, praise choruses in general, or even praise choruses at all. I think they were just aiming for a song of adoration, and that's what they got! I thought it was amusing.

    Integrity is pretty aggressive about copyright infringements.

    If BK did that, Integrity will go after them.

    I'm with D28...the chicken looks a bit possessed to me. Makes me want a burger.

    Wow...must be a slow news day. :D

    Burger King is the king of creepy commercials. They started with that creepy king peering in the windows, and now big bucking chicken. Just too creepy for me. And now Quaker Oats is getting in on creepiness...they have a big Quaker guy similar to the king.

    If you had made a poll, this would have been my vote! :D


    No doubt about that. The creepiest one was the guy waking up and finding the creepy king occupying the other side of the bed.

    Am I the only one that thought this commercial was only one letter away from vulgur profanity? "Big Bucking Chicken"

    :eek: Hadn't thought of that. Hmmm....

    Now, all we need to do is tie this commercial to Calvinism/Arminianism and EVERYONE will have some fun with it!

    This has all the makings of a BB scandal...
    -possible profanity
    -"Christian Rock"
    -"bucking" is not in the KJB, so it's wrong
    -BK is open on Sunday...the mark of the beast?
    -Did God have foreknowledge of "big bucking chickens?"
    -this was released very close to Brokeback mountain...possible gay agenda?

    Just putting a little gas on the fire... [​IMG]

    Hmm, it doesn't appear to talk but it's a giant, sentient chicken. Chickens are associated with the occult, and its huge size and intelligence is definitely unnatural. Add promoting witchcraft to the list!

    Seeing as how that used to be one of the most used word in my vocab before I was saved...that's all I think of when I hear the stupid commercial. My guess is that is what they were trying to sound like. I just turn the station when it comes on.

    (Just did a web-surf to watch the video of ad)

    I've got, I dunno, 15-20 Hosanna cds collecting dust. Haven't listened to them for a while but I think you are right there, the ad's style could have been taken straight from one of them....I couldn't name a specific song though because they just about all sound the same anyway [​IMG]

    I guess the possible explanations are: The ad is taken straight from a Hosanna song, with costs of a possible court case weighed against all the extra publicity...Or it was just copying the style to stir up some Christians and get publicity without expense of a court case...Or maybe Hosanna Music are just expanding their business? :eek: [​IMG] :D


    Whatever....I know those Hosanna cds I've got sitting there will have to sit a lot longer now or I'll hear "Big bucking chicken" when plug them in :eek: [​IMG]

    I guess that means the ad works... :eek:

    P.S. They better get all the chicken business they can get while the getting is good, cause once the bird flu hits, no one will be buying chicken sandwiches.
