It takes a special level of cluelessness to allow a multinational corporation to publish ads of a Hindu goddess eating hamburgers. And Burger King has achieved it.
Or perhaps they're not clueless, but recognizing hindus as an unlikely target audience, they decided it didn't matter if they were offended? Not that this perspective makes them look much better...
I love it! Assuming it is someone's totally twisted sense of humor, like Masami Teraoka and his series on McDonald's Invades Japan.http://www.acluhawaii.org/index.php?id=156http://ponchorama.com/2005/07/11/masami-teraokas-art-theatre/But, yes, in the cultural context it is a sick, sick idea. Especially if it is a genuine advertisement.
