Whopper Sacrifice: Ditch 10 Friends, Get a Free Whopper Eick January 7, 2009 Burgers, Fast Food, Marketing 157 Comments The Burger King secret menu is now out: http://secretmenus.com/burger-king/secret-menu As I noted in my post below, Burger King has just unveiled their new Angry Whopper.Â As many companies are now doing, they’ve tapped into Facebook and created an application to help promote it. But this Facebook application is a bit….different. Instead of encouraging you to join a group, find new friends, or spread the word, Burger King is allowing you to ditch some Facebook friends by offering their new Whopper Sacrifice Application which rewards you with a free WhopperÂ if youÂ DE-FRIEND 10 people from your friend list. As Platforms Optional notes, normally when you de-friend someone they may not even notice. Not the case with Whopper Sacrifice. Part of the application makes sure that each of the 10 friends you choose to ditch get announcements alerting them to the fact that they have been de-friended. Brutal, bold, and frankly, pretty awesome. Whopper Sacrifice website.

Surprised that no one has used this concept for other businesses. Reply Dan Rosenfield April 23rd, 2009 Pretty interesting attention grabber for Burger King. Good example of viral marketing. Burger King has only been successful selling to relatively young males…it will be interesting to see if this campaign broadens (no pun intended) their market. Reply Lou July 4th, 2009 Yuk, don’t think so, they’re overpriced rubbish! Reply Common Sense July 9th, 2009 I got my free whopper, the coupon came really fast. Probably the best decision ever made by BK. Reply Josh August 2nd, 2009 I think that is genuis. You get a free burger and you can defriend some people that were never really your friend in the first place. Reply James Parker February 1st, 2014 This is an amazing opportunity but I think that they are a little bit overpriced. However its really nice to share such articles 🙂 Reply James Ward February 6th, 2014 Wow what an amazing post and opportunity !! But definitely on the higher side but it s just too hard to resist too!
