Advertisements are meant to make you hungry for the item they are promoting, so many times the item in the advertising looks better than what you get. It is just a fact of the advertising world.

haha I mean fast food never looks like the ads right? They have food designers, half the time the "food" in the picture isn`t food, in cereal ads the milk is glue etc. just saying...it sucks but welcome to america.

Most of the stuff from fast food restaurants and even semi-formal ones don`t look half the way they do on the pictures. I work in two of them (they are joint) and it doesn`t look anyway like the picture but nobody complains as long as it doesn`t look like total crap. If there`s a fast food restaurant that`s an exception to this, i`d like to see it.

People do the same thing when they have their picture taken. They rotate themselves to most attractive angle and fluff themselves up.
Not sure the cheese fits my analogy, though. Still...

They pump them full of water. Quite often the stuff that looks nice on the shelves of supermarkets has had the same done.

We`re at the top of the food chain, because we are predators. Why make quorn and other poo as a stand in for REAL meat? Just eat REAL meat, its like drinkin non-alcoholic beer, pointless.

I`ve gotten some BurgerKing Burgers that looked like ther right side, still tasted the same tho. Mostly they do look better.
I`ve never gotten a TacoBell taco as nasty as that! They don`t heat-lamp them in Canada I guess...

I suppose it also depends on the particular restaurant you visit. There is a BK downtown that`s not as bad.
Also, Taco Bell is meh for me. I`ve never eaten there. I live in Mexico, so why visit Taco Bell?

The actual food that you get, at least from my experience, is in between the two sets of pictures. Thats basically what you would expect from a FAST food restaurant, they don`t have time to make it look like the ad, also the employees are usually teenagers, not fcking Gordon Ramsay!! You can tell because they swear slightly less often.

Of all of the burger chains I have found Hardee`s/Carl Jr`s the most consistant in being in the ballpark of the tv ads...
And Popeyes for chicken joints...

I wish there was a Popeyes where I live I miss them...

I don`t think you`d want anything from the left column. Sure it looks better, but to get the food to look that way, they use glue and paint and other tricks to make it aesthetically scrumptious. Not to mention taking 5 hours to beautify it.

No, no you don`t. Dude, Taco Bell is like heroin. It`s terrible for you, but it`s f*cking addictive. I`m seriously craving a Beefy-5-Layer soo bad right now...

And their new chicken flat-bread things are pretty awesome too...

You know, sans the diarrhea that comes afterwards. It`s pseudo-Mexican, you can`t really expect anything less... My friends say Grilled Stuffed Diarrhito, instead of Burrito...

Actually every Whopper i`ve ever gotten looks more similar to the first picture than the second. Ditto for the Taco Bell one, however, i`ve been to several Taco Bells that have churned out anorexic taco`s, like that before.

The Big Mac doesn`t really look that different to me. Besides some photoshop color adjustment everything is pretty much the same except for the plumpness of the bread.

Really the worst one is the Angus Deluxe. The patty is small, no onions, tomatoes or pickles are really visible, there`s not alot of lettuce AND the bun is flabby.

What we have here, however, is Marketing. This is true for just about EVERYTHING that`s marketed to you. They market the ideal, but they cannot guarantee it, and I think most people understand that- unless they`re naive.

I dunno, maybe it`s just in the McDonalds and Taco Bell I go to, but they look pretty close to the first pic when I get them. I mean, not absolutely perfect, but far closer than the "real" pics here.

I can`t speak for the Whopper, but the two McDonald`s burgers have always looked kinda meh compared to the ads. I`ve never gotten one that looked as bad as those, though...

As for the tacos... I don`t get hard tacos anyway. In fact, I rarely get tacos. Beefy 5-layer FTW!

...and if they took the time to make it look like the commercial (which is totally unrealistic) then you`d be complaining about how long it took instead of how it looks. Fast food is a thankless job.

I agree with xXAmethystXx. Even though my food never looks like either of the two up there, it definitely looks closer to the left column rather than the right. I think the guy who made this just happened to get the ones from the bottom of the bin or something.

Maybe it`s just the magical Burger King location I go to but I`ve never had a Whopper look like that thing on the right.. it looks like some pissed off employee stomped on it. ((Can I get a Liter o`Cola for a Cop?!))It sure never looks like that piece of perfection on the left but damn it`s good! Speaking of which... it`s Whopper Wednesday, I know where I`m going for dinner. All hail the Burger King!! haha

I used to manage fast food restaurants and I can tell you that it all starts with the manager. If he/she gives a poo then the rest of the team will give a poo and you get food that looks more like the picture on the left.
If he/she does not then you get food that looks like the stuff on the right.

ha... fast food and women are the same!

you see girls with the make up and the heels and push-up bras adn clothes that disguise the bad bits. Looking like the Hot Sexy Taco.

when you wake up the next morning it`s like the sad taco that`s been under a heat lamp too long.

But it doesn`t matter what it looks like `cause most men will eat it anyway.
