Burger King Mascot Prank: McDonald’s Isn’t HappyBy: Amanda Crum - September 24, 2012
That creepy King is at it again.
Though Burger King officially dropped the mascot as their go-to guy for commercials and ads, someone decided to dress up in the costume and prank McDonald’s recently, and the fast-food chain isn’t happy about it.
It’s been reported that the man is part of a comedy troupe called “Woodcreek Faction” and that the prank was their doing; they uploaded a video of the shenanigans on YouTube, where you can see the King handing out Burger King burgers inside a McDonald’s, taking pictures with kids, and then abruptly leaving. When a manager confronted him, he said he was simply “raising money for charity”, although he collected no money during his visit.
Police were called to the scene, though no arrests were made.
