Stranger Things x Burger King Whopper to be served upside down
There’s little doubt that Stranger Things is one of Netflix most popular shows, and while fans feverishly await season 3 to begin on July 4th, so too are the big brands.
Previously, the show has paid homage to everything from Dungeons &Dragons to synthesizers, and snack food is never far away from the character’s mouths. It should come as no surprise then that Burger King is looking to cash-in on the show’s popularity.
Starting tomorrow, the burger chain will be serving the Stranger Things Whopper (which is menu number 11 – yes, ‘eleven’).
The ingredient list is exactly the same as a regular Whopper; tomatoes, lettuce, ketchup, pickles, mayonnaise, etc. But with one big difference; this one is served upside down.
You also get a limited-edition black box, specially-designed ketchup packets, a crown, a t-shirt and a pin.
Yes, in this case the burger itself isn’t much to get excited about – you can recreate the same thing by first going and buying a regular whopper and second, turning it upside down before you eat it.
But Burger King is counting on the fact that fans will do just about anything for some sweet merch.
