At an early age, Sarah Michelle Gellar discovered that she was in the heart of a conflict around fast food.
During an interview with Buzzfeed UK, the 45-year-old actress who is most known for her role as the lead of The Wolf Pack reflected on her career and reminisced about a Burger King commercial she filmed long before she became known for her role as Buffy Summers.
“This is a great source of humor. Gellar recalled that this was a significant campaign that she had done for Burger King when she was just 5 years old. “And I was the first person to speak another competitor’s name in a job, and so McDonald’s came around and sued the advertising agency, Burger King, and me at 5,” I said. “And I was the first person to utter another competitor’s name in a job.”
She went on to say, “But what I really remember was I didn’t eat a lot of fast food at the time, and when we were there, I just wanted a burger.” “But what I really remember is that I wanted a burger.” “When my mum told me that I could eat the burger, I couldn’t contain my excitement.
“And what I discovered on that particular day was that when they manufacture the burgers for commercials, they glue each seed on it to make it seem as flawless and lovely as possible, and then they shellac it, and they paint it. You people, what you see on TV is not genuine “explained Gellar.
Despite the fact that she said that “banned is a harsh term,” Gellar had earlier mentioned in an interview with Sunday Express in 2004 that throughout the course of the litigation, she “wasn’t permitted to eat” at McDonald’s.
“It was tough because, when you’re a little kid, McDonald’s is where all your friends have their birthday parties, so I missed out on a lot of apple pies,” Gellar said in an interview with the outlet. “It was tough because, when you’re a little kid, McDonald’s is where all your friends have their birthday parties.”
Later, Gellar became known for her outstanding work in the lead role in the television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which aired on The WB for the first five seasons and then moved to UPN for the last two seasons. The series ran from 1997 to 2003. During her visit on The Graham Norton Show a month ago, she discussed the 20th anniversary of the finale. The episode was broadcast in 1999.
Gellar said that a lot of people want to bring up the fact that it has been 20 years. “It makes me happy that people still allude to it, but I don’t need the exact date and the passage of time for people to understand my age!”
