I was hoping someone out there can confirm a suspicion of mine pertaining a Burger King television ad called "Kong Good" that's currently running. The ad features a giant Burger King offering a damsel a giant burger through her sky-scraper window. Now the burger featured in the commercial is very large because the featured King Kong Triple Burger itself is very large but I think there's another reason why. Pay special attention to the dimensions of the woman in the commerical (particularly in the shot when you can see her standing) and please either confirm or shoot down my suspicion that the actress in question is a "little person".

I am that actress. While I am tiny (5' tall 95 lbs) I am not a "Little Person." You can check me out on imdb.com. My friend found this site and teased me a bit. Thought I'd clear it up though. Too funny.

Hi Paula!

I'm glad you took my comments in good humour and I'm sorry if you took any offense of being called "a little person" (not that's there's anything wrong with that, of course).

I was sure that I had stumbled upon a new way advertisers could make their products appear larger to the consumers' eye. I'll catch them out yet!

Take care

my friends and I just had an hour long argument about this very topic. I'm glad that this cleared it up.

Paula is definitely not a little person, but rather the coolest petite girl I know. While I haven't seen the commercial, I can vouch for her. Long live the Kong!

Be good,

Granted, Paula isn't that tall-a, but she's my favorite sweet petite any day of the week! Hope all's well in LA LA Land, Paula.

Be good,
