Burger King VS McDonald’s

Burger King and McDonald’s are at it again. Burger King Finland places outdoor ads outside its competitors restaurants promising free delivery – if you set your order’s pickup location to a McDonald’s restaurant.

“Nearly every district in Helsinki has a McDonald’s restaurant. Sadly Burger King is not quite as common. We feel for the whopper-less city dwellers of these regions. We know how it feels like to yearn for the taste of our juicy flame-grilled burgers. But lucky for them, there’s an easy fix”, says Kaisa Kasila, Brand Manager of Burger King.

Burger King turns local McDonald’s into their delivery hot-spots. Helsinkians can order out Burger King and pick up their order from their nearest McDonald’s restaurants free of charge from the 29th of June to the 1st of July.

A local food delivery and takeout app Wolt (similar to UberEats) is in with the prank.

Burger King and McDonald’s have created a global prank war. Earlier this year in Scandinavia Burger King made “The Moldy Whopper” – a small jab at McDonald’s. The experiment wasn’t tasty, but more of a unique way to show how the classic burger is free of artificial preservatives.

And just because nothing is sacred, Burger King has pulled pranks on other franchises as well, like Star Wars.

Ne-Yo – “U 2 Luv”

Today, Ne-Yo released his new single, “U 2 Luv” featuring Jeremih. The upbeat, unabashedly romantic track is from Ne-Yo’s forthcoming album. The two acclaimed vocalists teamed up with producers Retro Future and Ne-Yo’s longtime collaborator, Curtis “Sauce” Wilson, to record the song, which smoothly adds elements of two classic 1980s hits – Mtume’s “Juicy Fruit” and Zapp’s “Computer Love.”

To celebrate the single’s launch, Ne-Yo has teamed up with Postmates to support healthcare heroes caring for COVID-19 patients. Tonight, hero nurses in the ICU at Emory Medical Center in Atlanta will be Postmated meals from Subway during their breaks thanks to Ne-Yo, Postmates and Feed Hero Nurses (a volunteer-run organization in partnership with Random Acts that is dedicated to providing meals to nurses on the frontlines).

Listen to ‘U 2 Luv” here.
