Burger fans rejoice! Burger King has allegedly proposed to make a one-day truce with McDonald’s, which will see them created the ultimate hybrid burger called the McWhopper.
Burger King made this request to celebrate Peace One Day, which will occur on September 21. According to ABC News, the United Nations designated September 21 as annual International Day of Peace back in 2001.
But rather than setting up a meeting and requesting to join forces with McDonald’s, Burger King instead paid for full-page newspaper advertisements, which proposed that they mashup their two most famous burgers: McDonald’s Big Mac and Burger King’s the Whopper.
You can check out some of these advertisements, which ran in both the New York Times and the Chicago Tribune on Wednesday, below.

Burger King also detailed how the set-up of the McWhopper and the top half would look a little something like this.
Meanwhile, the bottom half would then include the ingredients from Burger Kings Whopper.
However, those of you who are currently salivating at the thought of this burger will need to make sure that you’re in Atlanta on September 21 in order to taste it. That’s because Burger King want to only serve the crossover burger for one day in a popup location in Atlanta. Why Atlanta? Because it’s in the middle of McDonald’s headquarters in Chicago and Burger King’s in Miami.
Negotiations for this weren’t off to the best start, though, as McDonald’s CEO Steve Easterbrook took to their Facebook page to write the following.
“Dear Burger King,
Inspiration for a good cause… great idea.
We love the intention but think our two brands could do something bigger to make a difference.
We commit to raise awareness worldwide, perhaps you’ll join us in a meaningful global effort?
And every day, let’s acknowledge that between us there is simply a friendly business competition and certainly not the unequaled circumstances of the real pain and suffering of war.
We’ll be in touch.
-Steve, McDonald’s CEO
P.S. A simple phone call will do next time.”
All of the money that would be raised from these sales would then be donated to Peace One Day, which is a nonprofit that looks to raise awareness of International Day Of Peace.
