Burger King: Whopperface

One cashier, one hidden cam, one printer. That´s all Burger King needed to prove that Whoppers are made to order. Exactly your way. When a person ordered a sandwhich, a picture was taken, without anyone noticing. The client got your freshly made Whopper with your face on it. Burger King has proved that each sandwich is unique, made to order, especially for each customer.

no extra time was needed. just the same time to get the burger ready to match the order.

It's funny how they don't talk about numbers on the video. I would be surprised if the whole thing impacted more than 20 people... besides what's the point? You know it was freshly made if it comes just like you ordered. Period.

The name, the video...This is just a huge CP+B copycat-wannabe.

Right... so, every out-of-home using whoppers from now on, is a CPB wannabe?

We can`t use spontaneous media anymore, `cause its “Best Job in the World“`s wannabe eighter?

Sorry lucas... no need to get all pissy. I'm not sure what "out-of-home" means but... yeah... pretty much whatever comes after Whopper Virgins, Whopper Freakout, Wopper Sacrifice and uses the same kind of presentation WILL BE considered a CP+B copycat/wannabe... Again, the most important part they (or you) forgot to copy: the efficiency.

About spontaneous media... is much older than you think... wasn't invented by "The Best Job in the World" .... go ask Baby Jesus.

Numbers? Who cares about numbers here? It´s all about the brand, awareness.
Whopper Freakout does not have numbers and its a success.

Congratulations! Very well done.

Sweet. This makes me loves advertising and our industry.I bet the guys that did this had a great time seeing this fantastic idea come to life.And its the small things that make customers love a brand. It's the sweet spot idea...where nobody, client/account can complain that this is not on strategy and an great creative idea.

seems to me you're trying to convince those already convinced.

To how many people will the guy (or the girl) with his picture of the wrapper tell the story to? How many of those by sheer curiosity, will go to Burger King to have their "Me-too" experience? That's what I call extended reach... Very nice concept.

This is called brand engagement. Those of you who are being a little too critical of this initiative need to lighten up. I love it! It's a bit silly, but fun and refreshing nonetheless.

This is real good stuff. The most important thing is how it hit the consumers. They were really wowed and that's what matters most.
