BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU SWALLOW WITH BURGER KING®

With their agency Buzzman, BURGER KING® France bounced back with humor to the latest controversial work of Maurizio Cattelan: a banana simply stuck on a wall, which sold for $120,000.00 and was eaten by a visitor. On their social networks, the American brand trolled the work of art, replacing the fruit by a French-fry. All this for a much more reasonable price, obviously.

An ironic way of displaying the excesses of contemporary art, and to remember that BURGER KING®, at least, is not bananas.
