BK, CP+B Call it Quits

Holy moley, who would’ve seen this coming? Guess the goodwill earned from Whopper Freakout, Subservient Chicken and sometimes creepy ad campaigns wasn’t enough to cut it. Here’s a joint statement, which came literally minutes after a tipster sent us notice, from both parties:

“Burger King Corp. and Crispin Porter + Bogusky have enjoyed a tremendously successful relationship over the past seven and a half years. During that time, our creative partnership resulted in countless innovative and engaging campaigns for the BK brand. We are incredibly proud of all that we have accomplished together, but have mutually decided that now is the right time to part ways. We are fans of each other’s work and wish each other much success in the future.”
