Burger King is doing its part in encouraging diners to practice social distancing!
In Germany, the fast-food chain introduced a creative new way to get customers to stay six feet apart from each other as franchises in the country begin to reopen dine-in services amid the coronavirus pandemic. New oversized headgear extends far enough all around the wearer’s head to ensure they remain distanced and can eat their meal in peace.
Ch-ch-check out a pic of two models digging in (below):
The Instagram caption translates to, “distancing, but make it fashion.” That’s one way to put it!!
A Burger King spokesperson told Business Insider:
“We wanted to reinforce the rules of high safety and hygiene standards that the BK restaurants are following. The do-it-yourself social distance crown was a fun and playful way to remind our guests to practice social distancing while they are enjoying food in the restaurants.”
And over in Italy, the fast-food giant is also debuting something fresh. Italians can enjoy a “Social Distancing Whopper,” which features triple the amount of raw onions usually found on a classic Whopper, created in an effort to keep others outside your bubble thanks to onion-induced bad breath.
A commercial promoting the burger shared:
“The triple onion Whopper that helps others stay away.”
While these haven’t made their way to the United States yet, we can dream!!
Instead, it seems BK’s US social media accounts have found themselves in some hot water after engaging with a Taylor Swift fan. On Tuesday, the Swiftie asked on Twitter:
“@BurgerKing i need to know… what’s yalls favorite taylor swift song?”
And BK came back swinging! They replied (below) on Wednesday:
“the one about her ex”
However, many fans from both sides of the “argument” didn’t take the situation lightly, asking that Swifties focus their attention on more pressing matters:
“swifties i promise you taylor swift does not give a f**k about burger king and neither should you. direct your attention to the racism going on in our world instead.”
“Yall really trying to get @BurgerKing CANCELED? We got more important s**t to focus on then a joke taken poorly by some Taylor swift fans. F**k outta here”
“F**k Burger King and Taylor Swift, I don’t wanna hear anything about them unless they’re donating to Civil Rights organizations or standing up to the corrupt justice system. People getting killed out here and y’all talking about #BurgerKingIsOverParty”
We can almost promise you that Tay would agree.
