In anticipation of next month’s season three of Netflix’s popular Stranger Things, fast food restaurant, Burger King, has something special for fans. Kind of.
They are debuting the “Upside Down Whopper.” What’s special about it you ask? Well..it’s upside down…literally. It’s a regular whopper. Served upside down.
The Upside-Down is an alternative universe in “Stranger Things,” a show set in the 1980s that centers around the lives of four adolescent boys and their friends. The new season premieres on the streaming service on July 4.
If the upside-down part of the promotion isn’t grabbing people, the nostalgia factor might: The upside-down Whoppers will be served with Burger King’s classic packaging from the mid-1980s.
The special burger will be sold starting June 21 at certain restaurants in several US cities: Miami, Houston, Boston, Atlanta, Dallas, Philadelphia, Chicago, San Francisco, New York and Los Angeles. Restaurants in those cities will also have limited-edition ketchup packets and t-shirts inspired by “Stranger Things.”
