George Clinton goes for flame-broiled funk

We all know about George Clinton’s fondness for cocaine, but AdFreak is pretty sure his problems started well before 2003. In fact, we can pinpoint them to the day, using this Burger King mini muffin ad from 1990 as evidence. At the time, Burger King’s faith in him as a believable pitchman was limited to saying he “had no problem eating the product.” Or hiding it under his tongue, judging by his enthusiasm levels on screen. Of course, that could have been the drugs, too. And he probably wasn’t the worst offender either. I don’t want to know how much booger sugar it took to convince that kid to shave a muffin into the back of his head.
