Burger King's TV Commercial Backfires

Burger King's attempt to take control of your Google Assistant has backfired.

The  fast food chain launched a 15-second ad in which an actor playing a  Burger King employee looks into the camera and asks, "Okay, Google: What  is the Whopper burger?" The question was supposed to trigger the  voice-activated speaker in the viewer's home to respond with a detailed  description of the Whopper read from the burger's Wikipedia page. 

However,  it didn't quite work. While the prompt did trigger the speaker, it  didn't actually respond. As it turns out, it was probably a good thing  that it didn't work because pranksters started editing Wikipedia to  change the description of the Whopper to include fake ingredients such  as cyanide.
