Xenia, Ohio (The Weekly Vice) -- Well for those of you who haven't run far enough to escape this punk's video - but will watch it out of morbid curiosity anyway - here it is. The video of Burger King's 'FORMER' employee, Timothy Tackett, who's video of himself taking a bath in a Burger King utility sink was posted on MySpace.
Burger King Corp. is miffed to say the least and announced today that is has parted ways with Tackett, who is seen in the 4-minute video lathering up in a Xenia, Ohio Burger King utility sink.
Tackett, who refers to himself accurately as "Mr. Unstable" appears in the video apparently naked in a sink full of soapy water - touting that it's his birthday. He then treats himself to a bath in the Burger King sink as employees and a store manager stood by.
The video started making it's rounds on the Internet Monday morning, eventually reaching the computer screen of Greene County Health Commissioner, Mark McDonnell who was less than amused by the asshat's idea. He quickly dispatched a staff of inspectors out to the Burger King located on Orange Street (likely armed with a stack of code violation checklists and twice sharpened pencils).
By the time the inspectors arrived, the restaurant told health workers they had disposed of some utensils and had sanitized the sink twice. (from the looks of him, not good enough).
Burger King Corp., realizing the story had hit the mainstream press, sent an email stating:
"Burger King Corp. was just notified of this incident and is cooperating fully with the health department. We have sanitized the sink and have disposed of all other kitchen tools and utensils that were used during the incident. We have also taken appropriate corrective action on the employees that were involved in the video. Additionally, the remaining staff at this restaurant is being retrained in health and sanitation procedures."
The Weekly Vice Opinion:
Several patrons of the restaurant weren't quite satisfied with Burger King Corporation's response - pointing out the main point that we'd like to know. What kind of drugs was the manager on - and was HIS delinquent hind-end fired?
Since we all know restaurant staff changes every 3 days and the management staff every week, sanitizing the sink and retraining a few 16-year-olds on sanitation hardly seems like an effective answer. But we suppose such stupidity can only be met with stupid responses.
We'll leave the topic alone with one final thought. If you patron this store, and by chance find a hair in your food, you can no longer assume the hair came from a person's head. Enjoy your fries!
