Ahead of Stranger Things' anticipated return to Netflix,Burger King is adding to the list of brands tapping into the hype, with the release of a promotional ‘Upside Down Whopper.’

As one of Netflix’ most marketable original shows, it’s no surprise that brands are beginning to announce brand partnerships ahead of the release of season 3 on 15 July.

A co-promotion with Coca-Cola and Netflix, Burger King is reaping the seeds of Stranger Thing's popularity, with a nod to the upside parallel dimension that exists in the retro sci-fi series.

The ‘Upside Down Whopper’ contains all the same ingredients as an ordinary burger – only it arrives bottom-up.

Burger King’s decision to offer the limited-edition burger in 11 locations is another reference to the eerie Netflix show. Eleven is the show’s protagonist; a kidnapped kid who doesn’t get the best start in life, given she grows up as an experiment in a laboratory.

On sale from 21 June, the burger will only be available in the US. The 11 restaurants will also sell limited-edition Stranger Things gear, including T-shirts, ketchup packets, crowns and pins.
