What a WHOPPER of a deal! Burger King will give out free burgers this Halloween weekend… but only to scary clowns

Over the last couple of years the lowly clown costume has seen a huge resurgence recently, thanks in part, to the overwhelming success of Stephen King’s latest movie adaption IT. We’ll not be surprised this weekend to see our fair share of terrifying Pennywise’s and Georgie’s telling revellers that we’ll float too. Burger King have had the brilliant idea to capitalise on this popularity and take a sneaky swipe at their rival McDonald’s in the process by handing out free burgers to costumed clowns ahead of this All Hallows Eve for #ScaryClownNight.

To claim your free WHOPPER all you need to do is head on down to the Leicester Square store on Saturday 28th October between 7pm and 3am in your finest clown attire. But you’ll need to hurry – the offer is limited to the first 500 guests wearing a clown costume only.

The campaign will launch on social media and will include the ‘very scary’ video below, directed by award-winning filmmaker Rodrigo Cortés – known for movies like `Buried´ starring Ryan Reynolds and `Red Lights´ starring Robert De Niro and Cillian Murphy.

Renato Rossi, Head of Marketing for Burger King UK said, “The BURGER KING® brand is known for welcoming all customers and putting the crown on everyone’s head. This Halloween, come like a clown to eat like a king!”

So this weekend, dust off those rainbow wigs, pull up those stripy trousers, pop on your red noses and head on down to Burger King because nothing beats a good burger after a night out – especially if it’s free!
