Am I hallocinating or was Hootie in a Burger King commercial?

A weirdass one too with a cowboy theme and a girl on a swing.

Yeah, that threw me off too. I guess that " Only Wanna be With You " cash is running low.

Just caught this again, after seeing it for the first time several days ago. Yet another bizarre Burger King commercial.

Of note:

*The theme song is sung to the tune of "Big Rock Candy Mountain" (made popular by the "O Brother" soundtrack)
*It's advertising the Tender Crisp Bacon Cheddar Ranch sandwich, I believe it's called
*Brooke Burke is the girl on the swing
*Some Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders make an appearance
*The creepy Burger King guy from earlier commercials makes a cameo
*Vida (she of big, shapely-assed fame) makes an appearance during which Hootie sings a line about a "big caboose"
*The Subservient Chicken is also seen, dancing around once or twice

That's what I noted, but there may be a few other oddball characters and cameos that I missed. Odd commercial.

I saw it too. It was so fucked up, I actually liked it. I wish I could have seen it back in my college days after sparking up a bowl.

Same here. I didn't realize it was Hootie, though.

Damm, this commercial is not available in Canada. I wonder if this commercial is available to view in Ifilm.

I know the thread is about Hootie, but if were gonna have pics, can we include the aforementioned hotties as well.

I prefer the hotties to the hooties.

Definitely one of the most bizarre commercials I've ever seen. Especially the longer version which I've only caught one time.

Hootie is still better than being called a "blowfish".

Me too! I saw H&TB way back when.

The commercial was surreal. Although much better than the drugged anal rape BK commercial before it.

As I hit quick reply for my last post...I was changing channels on my remote and the commercial was on (MTV).
