Here at Popten Studios, we’ve always got ideas percolating, especially in the realm of comedy shorts. One of our older ideas, a Juan original, involves the Whopper Senior. I won’t go into it (in the hopes that we’ll one day film it) but will say this–
Japan has officially unleashed the Whopper Senior. Ahab, watch your back- the great white whale has resurfaced. And it’s seven epic burgers stuffed into a perfect storm of condiments. Feast your eyes. For the best effect, watch this in slo-mo with some Carmina Burana blasting.
And that monstrosity happens to be selling like hotcakes.
The seven-patty burger weighs more than 791 grams (1.4 lb.) and stands about 12.7 centimeters (5 inches) tall. At 2,120 calories, it’s more than just a quick snack, easily exceeding the 2,000-calorie daily diet recommended by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration. The promotion was originally supposed to last seven days, but it’s been such a hit that the fast-food chain has extended it for nine more days. “We were surprised that it’s been so popular,” says Burger King’s spokeswoman Nozomi Nagumo.
Only in Japan… I hope.
America is also going to have a whopper senior, but it is a completely different concept. Uncoveror.com has a story about it. http://www.uncoveror.com/whoppersenior.htm
