I don’t remember Stranger Things had this many collabs last season. Anyways, yes, here’s another Stranger Things collaborations running up to the season 3’s premiere on July 4th, 2019. Following Polaroid Stranger Things Edition OneStep 2, LEGO 75810 Stranger Things set revealed in May and more recently Baskin-Robbins and Nike collaborations, the other U.S. burger chain, Burger King, has also hopped onboard the hype train with Upside Down Whopper.
As you may have already guessed, Upside Down Whopper is basically, the iconic BK Whopper served upside down. Well, what can I say? It is, by far, the least a company did for this or any collaboration. The major effort here would be the marketing, which BK didn’t even bother to issue official words on its website. Instead, dishing out the arrival of the Upside Down Whopper on social media.
The Upside Down Whopper is described as “sandwich that features exclusive packaging and the same ingredients as the original Whopper, served upside down.” That’s it. Fortunately, it will not have any ingredient from Upside Down. No Eggo Waffles as side either. Speaking of Eggo… the waffle is Eleven’s favorite food and to honor this super cool, young protagonist, Burger King will be serving the Upside Down Whopper at just eleven locations listed below.
