Burger King Has Invented A ‘Hands-Free Burger Holder’, Signalling The End Of Humanity’s Achievements
We had a pretty good run, folks. Humanity invented some pretty awesome stuff. We figured out how to harness electricity, we split the atom and we’re even closer than ever to understanding the origins of the universe. All of that is for nought now, though: Burger King has just called a halt on all scientific achievements from here on out with the invention of the hands-free Whopper holder. Stop the planet. I want to get off.
The golden arches hold a special place in our hearts (or waistlines). The Big Mac, the chicken nuggets, the french fries — they’re all in your face delicious and define McDonald’s better than Ronald ever could. But McDonald’s in other countries get to enjoy more than just the ordinary greatness; they have wonderful menu items, like poutine, green tea McFlurrys, Spam and spaghetti.
For the burger joint’s latest campaign in Japan, it’s going for flavours from France, India, and… Australia. But while Aussies stuff down the McOz and Serious Lamb Burgers, in Japan, the Aussie Deli sandwich looks like this. Unwrapping the sandwich reveals a bun, lettuce, bright orange cheese, and pastrami. There’s some sort of vegetable relish and mustard. And seriously, what is going on with this TV commercial?
Apparently fast food still isn’t fast enough for the residents of Japan. Starting in March, McDonald’s will be testing out a new system allowing drivers to order and pay for a happy meal right from their car’s navigation unit.
I’m jealous of the French two days in a row. McDonald’s has commissioned designer Patric Norguet to redesign its ‘restaurants’ in France and he’s come up with a stunning redefinition of the most popular fast food chain in the world. It’s fit more for Michelin star restaurants than McDonald’s.
