It's parody, clear and simple.
It's offensive to men. It's offensive to women. It's offensive to construction workers and mini-van owners.
It may be a stupid ad.
But, in the end, it's very clear parody.
That said, if you want to tell BK that the ad doesn't resonate with you, go ahead. They need feedback like that. On the other hand, they have other ways of measuring the success of an ad.
(P.S. You're not the target audience)
But what if this ad used another another song in a parody way? Suppose, oh, it used a Hebrew traditional song to sell a new pork sandwich?
Would we still find it acceptable parody or funny?
