Wayback Wednesday: Buffy The Burger Slayer

By June 10, 2015

Before she was the ass-kicking vampire slayer, Burger King hired Sarah Michelle Gellar to slay McDonald’s and any other burger challenger!

Back in 1981 when Sarah Michelle Gellar was a ridiculously adorable five year-old, she starred in a number of ads for BK that — knowing what we know now — showed some small shades of what she would become later: a BAD ASS vampire slayer with a sharp wit.

“Do I LOOK 20% smaller to you?”

Effed Up Fact: McDonald’s was so pissed off BY said ad, they sued BK and named Gellar in said lawsuit. “I wasn’t allowed to eat there, ” said Gellar. “It was tough because, when you’re a little kid, McDonald’s is where all your friends have their birthday parties, so I missed out on a lot of apple pies.”

What about you; do you have any commercials starring your fave actors from when they were kids? I’d LOVE to see them, so leave them in the comments below!

    such random information, really interesting at the same time too though :) .. I wonder if BK gave her free burgers to compensate..

    lol, Poor Buffy, I bet being banned from MacDonald’s did her health some good at least, even if she wasn’t happy about it at the time

    I wish my kids could get officially banned from MacDonald’s..

      its amazing how as a country we have made it socially acceptable, and normal for kids to go to mc donalds as a treat, or even at all. I think under 16′s should be banned from going to somewhere like mc Donalds, and I am not joking! Feed your kids FOOD, not crap! :)

    i hate that it is normal to have children’s birthdays in McDonald’s .. Hey here’s an idea, lets celebrate out child’s birthday by bringing him and all his friends to a place that will feed them the food that if they eat enough of over the years will be the main cause of their deaths.. Woohooo America!
