Burger giant Burger King is playing in the gender inequality space in a new campaign out of the US.

In the ad, customers order a portion of Burger King’s chicken fries which should cost $1.69. Except when a woman orders the same product she is charged $3.09 because they come in pink packaging.
Understandably livid, the women launch into a tirade which does give the spot some gravitas.
