The BURGER KING® brand has a fiery holiday gift for McDonald’s

DECEMBER 15, 2017

The holiday season is a joyous time so the BURGER KING® brand WHOPPER® Man did the unthinkable... He surprised McDonald’s in Tyger Manor, Cape Town, with the gift of fire: A grill with real flames.

BURGER KING® brand did not spare any expense to make this special delivery. Because who doesn’t prefer a flame-grilled burger? Now, finally, McDonald’s will be able to enjoy burgers the way we think they are supposed to be: flame-grilled.

Ezelna Jones, marketing executive for BURGER KING® South Africa, says: “With it being the season to be jolly, it means we like to give out gifts too.  We wanted to reach out to our competitor during this joyful season to share with them – like our guests – how flame-grilled burgers taste.  As part of a global initiative, BURGER KING®s across the world will be wishing McDonald’s a flame-grilled festive season.”

The BURGER KING® brand, known for flame-grilling burgers since 1954, will share with the world the film ‘The Gift of Fire’ on Thursday, 14 December 2017. View it here.
