Hackers changed Burger King's Twitter account to look like McDonalds.
Perhaps, as one Twitter user commented, "Whopper123" isn't a secure password. Whatever password Burger King was using to lock down its Twitter account, hackers figured it out and promptly got to work with a McDonalds themed makeover. The cyber pranksters changed Burger King's Twitter handle and avatar, and posted a series of fake tweets, one of which claimed the fast food joint had been sold to McDonalds.
Windows 7 has finally arrived, and now that the day is here, you might still be wondering which version is right for you. Do you stick with Home Premium, or go all out and splurge on Ultimate? If you're hungry, and happen to be in Japan, order the Windows 7 Whopper Edition, available only at Burger King (where else?).
That's right, even Burger King isn't letting this long awaited marketing opportunity slip by. So what separates the Windows 7 Whopper from other versions of Windows, or other burgers? Try a (dare we say it?) whopping seven beef patties stacked over five inches high, which is almost twice the size of a 4x4 at In-N-Out Burger.
The promotion runs for a week and the first 30 customers each day will be able to snag one for ¥777, or about $8.50 in U.S. currency. Then the price jacks up to ¥1,450, or just over $17.
Yep, you read that headline right, Burger King is offering a free Whopper to anyone that will delete 10 of his or her Facebook friends.
Going along with their string of strange marketing campaigns (read: The King), Burger King is offering the free Whopper alongside their Facebook app. Once the app is installed, you can delete 10 of your friends for a coupon good for one free Whopper. It’ll even update your friends that haven’t been deleted on the activity feed, for example, “Andy Salisbury sacrificed Norman Chan for a free Whopper.”
Sadly, the promotion is only good for one free sandwich, so folks with thousands of friends won’t be able to stock up for the recession. Oh, and to my Facebook friends, if I delete you it’s nothing personal – I’m just hungry.
