Burger King — Scary Clown Night

How a single Whopper made 110.000 people dressed up their self as a clown for Halloween.


To prove Burger King isn’t afraid of any clown, we decided to invite all of them to have a free Whopper.
The activation took place in 35 countries. All people had to do was go to a Burger King as a clown to eat like a king.
