Tuesday Throwback: That Time Burger King Stopped Selling The Whopper And People Freaked Out

The Whopper is Burger King’s signature sandwich. So what would happen if it stopped being sold? Spoiler alert: people were upset. This was the opening spot of Burger King’s aptly named “Whopper Freakout” campaign. I’ve also included a longer, behind the scenes look. In subsequent ads, customers got a Big Mac or a Wendy’s Single instead of a Whopper, and were similarly pissed and confused. Fun, award-winning work.
