Burger King debuted a new ad with some text which causes a Google powered device to start reading aloud a thing from the BK Wikipedia page.

Argh, right? But what's the "unintended" part? Wikipedia is editable! People started editing the page so that "other text" not friendly to BK started being recited.

Google, of course, realized that BK was evil. (Takes one to know one.) So it blocked the audio from activating devices. Which BK, in order to out-evil Google, tweaked so it would go thru still.
