Burger King introduces Proud Whopper

Burger King joined in the 2014 San Francisco Pride Celebration & Parade, June 28- 29, with the introduction of a new burger, the Proud Whopper. Customers at the 1200 Market Street Burger King restaurant in San Francisco were given the challenge of working out the distinctive nature of the new burger. Ultimately they discovered that despite the colourful wrapper the burger was the same inside. Burger King changed its Facebook cover, launched a rainbow #BeYourWay Facebook pic, and encouraged Twitter followers to share their origami version of the Proud Whopper wrapper using the #BeYourWay #ProudWhopper hashtags.
