Cheeseburger Chill Smoothie :oD

Smoothie chain Jamba Juice hasn't taken so kindly to McDonald's, which launched a line of smoothies last month, treading on its turf. In order to take a punch at the fast food chain's "me too" approach, Jamba Juice created a spoof commercial on YouTube (see video below) introducing a Cheeseburger Chill Smoothie.

In the video, a man playinga ukulele sings about how the chain just loves cheeseburgers and smoothies so it's offering a burger-blended smoothie. The video shows one of the disgusting concoctions being made: an entire cheeseburger (complete with lettuce, tomato and a bun) is jammed into a blender filled with ice and pureed. The resulting brown liquid is then poured into a Jamba Juice cup and topped with mustard and ketchup.

The company's video directs viewers to the Cheeseburger Chill web site which states: "Is Jamba Juice getting into the burger business? NO WAY. But it does seem some burger chains are getting into the smoothie business." Customers who are "in on the joke" can receive a $1 coupon for any Jamba Juice smoothie.



  1. I heard about this and was disappointed that it was just a poke at Mickey D's. The time has come for a real cheesburger smoothie...

    ... I'm looking at you, Barrista's!!

  2. Cute ad, but I threw up a little in my mouth when they poured the Cheeseburger Chill Smoothie into the glass.
    Thanks goddess it's a joke! =)

  3. i worked for a summer as a prep cook/ dishwasher in a nursing home. you can puree anything!


  4. I'm crazy about smoothies. But a cheeseburger one is too disgusting to imagine. I was afraid I'd throw up looking at the ad.

  5. That just doesn't sound like a smoothie I'd wanna try!! No matter HOW hungry I am!! LOL!! I don't think Jamba Juice has anything to worry about, Mickey D's smoothies are NOT that great, IMHO!!

  6. Sure isn't my kind of smoothie but a great ad campaign.

  7. I've tried the strawberry-banana smoothie at our Mc D's, and I actually liked it.


Tell Me What You Think, Don't Make me go Rogue on you :o)
