Burger King Wants To Sell You An Upside Down Whopper Because ‘STRANGER THINGS’

Listen. I don’t want to tell you how to live your life.
If you want to wear socks with your Birkenstocks, be my guest. I didn’t want to see your feet anyway. You want to eat a tub of cream cheese while rollerblading through the park, tiger? Go for it. Always wanted to take a selfie at the Grand Canyon on the edge of a precipice? Live your best life, preferably attached to a harness of some kind.
But if someone wants to sell you an upside down burger, well, I don’t know what to tell you.
Brought to you “your way” from the minds at David Miami and MullenLowe U.S. (loved the “real meals” by the way), Burger King has released a Stranger Things tie-in promotion ahead of the third season’s debut with the Upside Down Whopper, proving that all you need to do is a slap a Stranger Things font on the side of a box, and people will buy it.
What is the Upside Dowd Whopper, you ask? Gothic ivy and floating ash emanating from a cardboard box with scrumptious yet monstrous delights inside?
Nope! Upside down burger! That's it!
It’s all of the same ingredients you know and love, minus the Eggos. (That said, bonus points for the nosebleed ketchup sachets because, yeah, that's cool...)
Look, there are some bad promotional crossovers (Fifty Shades of Grey teddy bear, anyone?), but then there’s just lazy. And while the burger chain will also have some Stranger Things swag available for customers, the Upside Down Whopper is only available in 11 cities. I’m sure you’ll understand.
Anywho, Stranger Things is coming back to Netflix on July 4th. I don’t need this burger in my life, and neither do you.
