In further proof it’s arguably the cleverest advertiser on the planet at the moment, Burger King has unveiled a new campaign that not only puts the boot neatly into its arch-rival McDonald’s, but its misinformed customers, too.
The two spots, out of the UK, show Burger King customers being banished from restaurants for mistakenly ordering a cheese burger.
The global burger chain’s signature item is, of course, its famed Whopper, while the cheese burger is something you’d find on Macca’s menu.
Called “Go on, say it”, the campaign’s the work of Burger King’s new UK creative team, London’s Bartle Bogle Hegarty. Check out the fun below:
