EDIT: Unfortunately Facebook is being a bunch of jerkwads and have put an end to this campaign.
I’m not much of a fast food eater and when I do grab a quick meal, it’s rarely at Burger King. That said, their advertising and promotions are light years ahead of their competitors and this free Burger King Whopper via Facebook promo is no different. The gist of the deal is that you add their application to your Facebook page and then sacrifice 10 of your friends. That’s right, they want you to delete ten people from your friends list.
Why? I have no idea. Does it make sense? Little if any. Is it a fantastic promotion that’s guaranteed to succeed and go viral throughout the Internet because of how random it is? You bet your sweet butt! I’ve already added the application and have begun fielding offers from my friends as to why I should keep them around. Nothing helps pass the time like groveling at somebody’s feet!
You know what else passes time? Joining the Hey, It’s Free! Facebook group. That should help pass 10, maybe 15 seconds easy.
