You know what they say about artists, “good artists copy, great artists steal.”
Well, according to comedian, Billy Eichner, Burger King has stolen his act from Funny or Die, a show on Fuse TV. In Eichner’s comedy bits, he would run up to a random person on the street and ask them to scream a celebrity tweet, and once they did it, he would give them a dollar for it and move on.
Here is a bit from his skit:
Hey @BurgerKing-thanks for stealing my act for ur new commercial!! Except its not as funny & everyone knows u stole it. GET YOUR OWN IDEAS.
