Burger King Unveils ‘Stranger Things’ Upside Down Burger

Burger King joins the ever-expanding promotional partner list for Netflix’s Stranger Things season three with an official “Upside Down Burger”.

The limited-edition burger will hit the following cities on June 21: Miami, Houston, Boston, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Dallas, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York.  There will only be eleven locations in total (get it?) featuring the burger (which in any reality is just a traditional Whopper served upside down, so just in case you can’t get to one of these locations, you can replicate the Hawkins National Laboratory experiment on your own with a simple flip).

Other tie-ins include ketchup packets with Eleven’s trademark nosebleed (see packet picture below) and the famous Burger King cardboard crown with an attached baseball cap bill (and color change) to simulate Dustin’s famous hat.  Limited edition t-shirts are also supposedly available at these locations.

Earlier this month, Baskin-Robbins introduced a number of ice cream creations inspired by Stranger Things and Coke was the first out of the gate with a limited relaunch of their monumental New Coke disaster (available only on a retro website inspired by the 8 bit video game graphics of the same era).

Stranger Things season three debuts on July 4 on Netflix.
