In an effort to reach more tech savvy consumers, Burger King is sponsoring ringtones of Warner Music Group artists on Virgin Mobile phones.

Ringtones will be priced at a buck each, which is actually much less than the $2.50 most Virgin Mobile ringtones currently sell for. Artists include Buckcherry, Danity Kane, War, Estelle, Casa De Leones, Group 1 Crew, James Otto and Plies.

This is not the first time a fast food monolithic giant has gotten into the ringtone business. In 2005 McDonalds tried testing a service that would let customers download ring tones and burn CDs while they waited for their food. But it didn’t really work out…
