Microsoft recently began selling their latest operating system in Japan called Windows 7.
And for one week (2009 October 22 – 28), they are running a joint campaign with Burger King Japan to promote “Windows 7“.
Until October 28th, Burger King Japan is selling an original burger called the “Windows 7 Whopper“!
What, you may be wondering, makes the “Windows 7 Whopper” different from the regular Whopper burger?
Well, it has seven burger patties!
Seven patties on one burger sandwich! That’s mad!
I’m sure they’ll sell many of these monstrosities. Mainly to people who want to try it for the novelty value before the campaign period ends and Burger King Japan stops offering it.
I won’t be buying it. Besides the fact that I have no interest in even trying to eat that much hamburger in one sandwich…there’s also the fact that the price for the thing is ¥1,450* (about US$15)!
* (The regular price is ¥1,450…but Burger King Japan will be selling the “Windows 7 Whopper” to the first thirty customers everyday who order it for ¥777.)
Here’s the ad for it:
"Windows 7 Whopper" available at Burger King in Japan until 2009 Oct 28.
While I was looking at Burger King Japan’s website, I noticed that they have Heineken Beer on their menu!
Burker King Japan sells beer
It says in the ad that a can of Heineken Beer costs ¥400. And you can buy a 「ハイネケン・コンボ」 (“Heineken Combo“), which is a side menu item and a can of beer, for ¥500.
Or if you buy any of the Burger King combo sets, you can change the soft-drink for a Heineken Beer for an additional ¥150.
I know that the Japanese fast-food chain “Freshness Burger” has beer on their menu…but I haven’t eaten at Burger King in quite a while. Now that they have beer on their menu, too…maybe I’ll visit a Burger King again soon (but I won’t be getting a “Whopper 7“)!
