Burger King boos McDonald's in haunting store prank

Burger King

A Burger King outlet in Queen’s, New York has adopted a Halloween costume in a thinly veiled stunt insulting rival McDonald's burgers.

Celebrating Halloween, the store has been covered in a sheet, adopting a ghost outfit, catalysing the animosity between the companies.

Playing on the ghost visuals and McDonald's, a sign reads: "Booooo. Just kidding, we still flame grill our burgers.”

A statement from Burger King read: "The restaurant’s temporary costume pokes fun at the fast-food chain’s biggest rival."

The fast food duo have history, engaging in the infamous McWhopper conflict of 2015.
