Unfortunately for Whopper fanatics, you can only cash in on this deal once, so make it count. The Whopper Detour lasts until December 12.
Burger King released a video teasing the upcoming promotion, and let’s just hope you don’t make the same mistake these Whopper-craving customers did. In the clip, several people actually showed up at McDonald’s drive-thru windows searching for the Burger King sandwich. The result? Several confused McDonald’s employees, hungry guests, and a few retrospective laughs for the rest of us.
McDonald’s has yet to weigh in on the Whopper Detour on Twitter, though it’s probably safe to expect the chains to exchange some flame-grilled burns.
Burger King’s Whopper Detour will be available on the app beginning on Tuesday. Just be sure to download it ahead of time and make your way to your local Burger King -- er, McDonald’s -- to take advantage of the nearly free meal before it’s gone.
Your move, McDonald’s.
