DON’T PLAY WITH FIRE WITH BURGER KING® BELGIUM

Recently attacked by a McDonald’s Belgium outdoor advertising panel near their new restaurant,
BURGER KING® Belgium responded… in their own way! The campaign, visible until August 6, is signed Buzzman.

A few days ago, BURGER KING® Belgium was surprised to discover that McDonald’s Belgium was installing an outdoor advertising panel right next to its new restaurant in Brussels asking customers if they preferred to be “served by a King or served as a King”…

A great opportunity for the King of WHOPPER® to meet his historical competitor, through a giant panel on the front of his new restaurant: “Why try to roast when you can’t even flame grill?”
By playing on the double meaning of the word “roast”, BURGER KING® Belgium reminds McDonald’s Belgium that it’s never a good idea to rib the king of the flame…

With this outdoor advertising, visible until August 6, BURGER KING® Belgium displays what the brand’s fans are looking for, above all: the unique taste of flame-grilled.
