Burger King Commercial Featuring…Meg Ryan? (1982)


I had a powerful craving to eat at Burger King today and I’ll tell you something, the girl that took my order was in no way as cheery and polite as Meg Ryan in this commercial from back in 1982!

Things apparently took an upswing in Meg’s life after the “Aren’t You Hungry?” sweepstakes because 5 years later she was starring with Martin Short and Dennis Quaid in the Joe Dante classic Innerspace!

Thanks to Crommy 5 for uploading this commercial over on YouTube.
