On Oct. 31, the Whopper chain is holding its first annual "Scary Clown Night" at select locations in Boston, Miami, Los Angeles, Austin, Texas and Salt Lake City.
Circus enthusiasts dressed up as clowns can visit any participating location on Halloween, from 7 p.m. to close, to score a free Whopper. But there’s a bit of a catch. The promotion is limited to the first 500 guests so you better get to your local BK early.
Burger King's video promoting Scary Clown Night is actually scary enough. A child is seen biking through the streets at night, because of course, when a clown dressed in yellow and red (sound familiar?) creeps him behind him on a tiny bike. The video’s tagline — "Come as a clown, eat like a king" — might just be another little jab at their arch (pun intended) rival.
