You Gotta Be Kidding Me!?

Who ever thought that this would be a good idea is probably crazy! Check this out, to promote the release of Windows 7, Burger King decided to serve a special seven patty Whopper.

Surely anyone that decides to eat this is shortening their life by a few years. The ad states that it is 13 cms tall, and contains seven patties each weighing 113g, a grand total of 791 grams of beef! I won’t be trying this for two reasons, we don’t have Burger King in Sendai, and it’s just bloody wrong. My heart is thanking me. Remember kids don’t break the one Whopper rule. It just leads to an upset stomach. I poached the picture below from a Japanese blog.

In order to actually bite into it the guy had to remove a few of the patties and eat them on the side. Not all food is healthy in Japan. Crazy!!

    worst cross promotion ever

  2. I thought it was fitting that [Microsoft] Windows chose a bloated hamburger to promote its new OS.

  3. Today’s the last day of this campaign.
    Last chance to get a “Whopper 7“!πŸ˜‰

  4. It has 2120 kcal!!! The campaign period has extended to 6th Nov.
    Can you resist it???

  5. I can hardly get my Japanese friends to eat a ham sandwich, let alone this behemoth! I wonder if the reason they are extending the promotion is because they have a ton of American beef they have to get rid of.

    • I think it might be the ham. I have a theory that Japanese people are crazy for beef. Thus this burger, and the popularity of the Mega Mac. Just a theory though.
