If you live near Rego Park in Queens, New York you probably saw or visited a #Burger King that was disguised as the ghost of McDonald's as a #Halloween prank. The fast food restaurant was covered in a large white sheet that had been spray painted with eyes cut out to show part of the Burger King sign. 

Burger King as McDonald's ghost

Burger King threw shade on #McDonald's with some of the Halloween signs. One sign insinuated that Burger King still has flame-grilled burgers that are better than McDonald's burgers. Inside the restaurant, hamburgers and other foods were served in containers with the McDonald's name on them.

Instead, the fast food restaurant considered the prank as a compliment. Also, McDonald's thought of it as a free advertisement. McDonald's shouted back by reminding the public that it serves treats like McCafe beverages, apple pies, and those world famous French fries.

Consumers of both restaurants know it was all in fun. Therefore, there has been no hard feelings from either restaurant. People have their favorite burger place to visit, and a little Halloween fun is not going to cause customers to change their mind about which place to get their burgers and fries.

McDonald's was founded in 1940 and inspired the opening of its competitor in 1953 that now has over 15,000 outlets in 100 countries. McDonald's is the world's largest restaurant chain, serving approximately 68 million customers daily in 119 countries across approximately 36,538 outlets. As both restaurants have found out, there are enough consumers for both of them. Which is your favorite place for burgers and fries?
