In August 2015, BK published an open letter proposing a ‘burger wars’ ceasefire with longstanding rival McDonald’s. BK proposed the two restaurants join forces to create a symbolic mash-up burger, The McWhopper, to be served on UN Peace Day. The proposal was met by frenzied public support, so McD’s drew criticism when they said no. Subsequently, tens of thousands of people took matters into their own hands by creating and sharing DIY McWhoppers. Meanwhile, four other competitors raised their hands for peace and together with BK created and served the historic ‘Peace Day Burger’ on Peace Day.

Campaign Description:
Insights: 1) People are curious for new flavour combinations and willing to trample across brand conventions to experience them. 2) There’s no longer an inside / outside of a company – thanks to social media, corporations are now held accountable for their actions. Creative idea: To raise awareness of United Nations Peace Day, Burger King made a highly visible proposal to McDonald’s, inviting them to collaborate on a truly one-of-a-kind product: The McWhopper. The proposed mash-up burger would combine key ingredients from each restaurant’s signature product, The Big Mac and The Whopper, to be prepared and served on one day only, Peace Day, 21st September 2015.
The McWhopper campaign wasn’t made social, it was born social. We were confident that had we approached McDonald’s behind closed doors, they would have said no behind closed doors. By making the proposal so very public on so many platforms, we knew McD’s would be pushed to respond. The proposal was planned with painstaking diligence, to ensure success didn’t hinge on a yes or a no. We invested a significant amount of time and resource into scenario planning, resulting in an extensive set of responses to cater for every conceivable scenario. More importantly, we created a comprehensive suite of campaign assets to inspire consumer engagement no matter what. It was a completely integrated approach designed to empower the public and media to create and share do-it-yourself McWhoppers, further spreading awareness. It was all very well for the world to take notice, but we also wanted the world to take action.
BK published an open letter in traditional and social, inviting McD’s to collaborate in creating and serving the McWhopper on Peace Day. The proposal was supported by tactical outdoor and spearheaded by, a multimedia toolkit of co-branded assets: staff apparel, signage, and a pop-up restaurant. Every asset was designed to be visually iconic and translate into multiple languages, for ease of share-ability. The proposal was met by frenzied public support, so McDonald’s drew criticism when they turned down the offer. Inspired by BK’s online Burger Build film, tens of thousands of people took matters into their own hands by creating and sharing do-it-yourself McWhoppers on YouTube, Instagram, Twitter, Vine, Facebook, and mainstream media channels - integrating the competitor’s product with our own.
In the fiercely competitive fast food category, Burger King faced declining consideration in the all-important 18 – 34 year old millennial demographic. A new breed of competitors such as Chipotle was connecting with youth via a shared sense of purpose and social good, positioning BK as old fashioned. Peace One Day is a global non-profit organisation whose goal is to make United Nations Peace Day, on 21 September, an annual day of non-violence and global unity. Each year they campaign tirelessly to raise awareness of Peace Day under the theme ‘Who Will You Make Peace With?’Our objectives were twofold: Increase brand consideration for Burger King and raise awareness of Peace Day 2015.
