Fans of Stranger Things can try an "Upside Down" Whopper


An interesting but weird marketing tool to promote the return of the hit Netflix show

When you think of Stranger Things, Burger King and its famous Whopper don't really come to mind. According to Entertainment Weekly, the large fast-food chain and Stranger Things are teaming up to offer hungry fans of the show a twist on the classic Whopper. That's right they literally are serving the Whopper upside-down as a nod to the alternate universe in Stranger Things. The packing will also be all 80's themed.

The promotion starts on June 21 in only a few select cities, Miami, Houston, Boston, Atlanta, Dallas, Philadelphia, Chicago, San Francisco, New York, and Los Angeles. If you aren't near any of these cities then perhaps a road trip is in order, that is if you are a die-hard fan of the show.

Burger King is not only offering up the twisty Whopper but also offering up get this limited edition ketchup packets and t-shirts!. Now, remember when McDonald's offered up special edition Rick and Morty Szechuan Sauce and how well that went? Will the same thing happen with this promotion? Who knows?

Stranger Things Season 3 will premiere on Netflix July 4 so if you want to try an upside-down Whopper head to your nearest Burger King and let us know if it does taste different.
