Andy Warhol appears in the weirdest Super Bowl commercial ever

Eat Like Andy Super Bowl Whopper Commercial Image

Given the Super Bowl’s lackluster performance, I found some strange excitement in Burger King’s #EatlikeAndy ad taken from the 1982 film 66 Scenes from America.

The original clip shows Warhol chewing on a Whopper for a good four minutes. According to fast-food aficionado Bill Oakley, Warhold had originally requested a McDonald’s burger.

While you can’t always get what you want, “Art,” quipped Warhol—”is whatever you can get away with.” Watch the video below.
