THE COMEDIANS OF BURGER KING’S COMMERCIALS HAVE A (CONFINED) ANNOUNCEMENT FOR YOU.

After several conclusive tests, BURGER KING® announces today the progressive reopening, with a view to the end of containment, of its restaurants, in drive and delivery only. The brand asked the actors in its (old) ads to announce it, from their homes, in a TV and web movie signed by Buzzman.

After 6 weeks without BURGER KING®, and no doubt a few attempts to reproduce a WHOPPER at your home, the brand is gradually reopening, with a view to the end of containment. The brand will propose its famous flame grilled Burgers but only in Delivery and Drive. A partial and progressive reopening allowed thanks to the implementation of strict sanitary measures to ensure the safety of everyone (employees, delivery personnel and customers).

The brand decided to ask the actors of its latest ads for help to announce this good news. So it’s from their homes, like all of us always confined, with their phones, webcams or children crying in the background that they will be able to celebrate the return of the activity.

A real “homemade” film broadcast on TV in 35-second format and on the brand’s social networks from 6 May.

Enjoy your meal and above all, if you can, stay home !
