Have you ever noticed that around Halloween time clowns get extra creepy? Well Burger King’s new ad basically reminds us that the McDonald’s mascot Ronald McDonald is a clown and he’s quite creepy too.
In a new ad called #ScaryClownNight, Burger King goes after their competitor’s mascot and portray him as very scary clown.
In the ad, a young man riding a bike is chased by a bunch of clowns, including one that looks a lot like Ronald. The young man peddles to safety to a Burger King and the same creepy Ronald look-a-like says, “I want my Whopper.”
The tagline says, “Come as a clown, eat like a king.”
Basically, the first 500 customers wearing a clown costume in select cities on Halloween night will receive a free Whopper.
The offer will be valid next Tuesday, Oct. 31, from 7 p.m. to 3 a.m. at five locations only in the U.S.—in Boston, Miami, Los Angeles, Austin and Salt Lake City.
