Hijacking Meaning: A Wake Up Call to the Will

2012.04.23

(Printed on the backside of a bag from Burger King)

INSIDE THIS BAG IS YOUR FOOD MOMENT. ROLL UP YOUR SLEEVES AND OPEN WIDE. KETCHUP WILL SPLATTER AND SOFT SERVE WILL DRIP. TASTY MOUTHFULS WILL QUIET THE CONVERSATION. AND ONCE THE MOMENT HAS PASSED, ALL THAT WILL BE LEFT IS A CRUMPLED UP WRAPPER, THIS BAG, AND A HAPPY YOU.

Alternative Translation:

Inside this bag is food to facilitate another escape from the waking moment. Legal drugs will spike insulin levels and aid your sleeping away an otherwise anxiety-ridden day. Once that escape high has passed, all that will be left is a less healthy version of you, surrounded by a bunch of trash, and overwhelmed with the unmistakable sense of your own alienation from self.
