Miss Mary says she never signed off on the production. Well…at least not the version that went viral & was briefly pulled out on the Internet. She finally spoke on the commercial.
“I agreed to be a part of a fun and creative campaign that was supposed to feature a dream sequence. Unfortunately, that’s not what was happening in that clip. I understand my fans being upset by what they saw. But, if you’re a Mary fan, you have to know I would never allow an unfinished spot like the one you saw go out.”
Burger King also had something to say:
“The ad was released prematurely before all of the licensing and final approvals were obtained. We would like to apologize to Mary J. and all of her fans for airing an ad that was not final.”
Burger King mentioned a new version of the commercial will be out soon. Be on the lookout for that.
