Burger King, you f*cking ROCK. September 21, 2015 could be a day that goes down in history forever. Burger King has given its long-time rival, McDonald's, the ultimate proposal: combine their perfect patties, the Whopper and the Big Mac, to create the McWhopper. This magical concoction has two burgers, three buns, and all the yummy condiments.
If McDonald's says yes, the fast food chains are expected to develop only one pop-up location in Atlanta, GA, a halfway point between McDonald's headquarters in Chicago and Burger King's headquarters in Miami. Or, better yet, POP-UP SHOP LOCATIONS NATIONWIDE! (While that probably won't happen we dare to dream.)
September 21 is Peace Day–a United Nations declared day of ceasefire and non-violence. Burger King, in partner with Peace One Day, is determined to spark awareness of Peace Day on a global scale. With this, they've decided to lead by example and make amends with their rivals. Frenemies should settle their differences with burgers more often.
In this proposal BK states, "Let's end the beef, with beef." They've provided a full display of potential uniforms, packaging options, and a master recipe (see gallery). Even the napkins to be used on that day are in the form of a peace treaty. Burger King, you've really outdone yourself.
Peace One Day was founded in 1999. According to peaceoneday.org the non-profit organizations' mission is to provide "an annual day of global unity, a day of intercultural cooperation on a scale that humanity has never known." An ambassador at Peace One Day said, "Awareness of Peace Day creates action, and that action saves lives."
McDonald's, the ball is in your court. Do the right thing for world peace and the fat kid that lives inside all of us—make the McWhopper.
