Do you remember when McDonald’s launched in South Africa?
A lot of you won’t because you were only 4 at the time, but I do. And what I remember is the deeply annoying fuss made by a lot of palpitating fans, who drove 20 km across town to get a Quarter Pounder with fries.
And now? Now they’re like,” McDonalds. Meh.”
Because now they’re palpitating over something newer ‘n better ‘n cooler. A new burger joint is about to open in Cape Town. Just down from the station in town. The first Burger King ever in the history of South Africa.
Oh. Em. Gee.
“I totally lived on Whoppers when I was on my gap year in London.”
“Ja, me too.”
And get this, people. BK opens the DAY after the Justin Bieber concert. How awesome is that? So you can totally like, stay up all night after the concert and then queue for a free burger at Bee Kay. Because they’re giving away 1000 free burgers on opening day.
OK, I know. The Beliebers aren’t the same bunch who lived on Whoppers on their gap year. But in the “Queuing For A Free Burger At BK in Cape Town” Venn diagram, there’s going to be a fairly large intersecting middle bit which will feature both of those demographics.
The first BK in SA. How sick is that?
That’s just too much awesomeness for one 24 hour period.
Here’s a random Burger King ad for Chicken Fries. Daddy rooster gives teenage rooster a bollocking for wanting to hang out with fries. Its fun. Nice performance by the roosters.
