The other night while watching an old Mystery Science 3000 tape from about 1994 these commercials for this old Burger King promotions called BK Tee Vee would be in every commercial break. I looked it up on Wikipedia of all places, and found a link to a Bk Tee Vee commercial I had never seen, and a Burger King promotion that is just puzzling:

Link to the video, and people confused by it as well:

It might play directly on the website, if it doesn’t there is a wmv file you can download. March 2017 update, here’s the commercial on YT. (more here: 1, 2, 3)

The dinner special makes NO sense, popcorn while you wait (“You get the popcorn, just to chill with”? — what?) It was only served from 4-8? Dan Cortese? Why is the serving for the coleslaw so large? And finally, was this just a regional thing? I have no recollection of this at all.

You can still get table service at some Dairy Queens and Hardees though I’ve noticed.
