This is what I found on CBSNEWS.COM:
This Valentine’s Day you can trade beef with your ex for some actual beef — and all you need is a photo of your former flame. Burger King is encouraging scorned lovers to trade a picture of their bygone beau for a free Whopper on Cupid’s holiday this year.
The deal is a partnership with the new film “Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn),” which follows newly single anti-hero Harley Quinn on her adventures in Gotham City, according to a press release.
Aching hearts are instructed to bring a printed picture of their ex to “Birds of Prey”-themed “breakup boxes” in select Burger King restaurants in participating cities. New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Boston are all included in the “Anti-Valentine’s Day” promotion.
The deal is limited to certain locations. Find out more in their press release on BUSINESS WIRE). Read blow:
This Valentine’s Day, who needs The Joker when you can have the King? In a new partnership with Warner Bros. Pictures and their new film Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn), Burger King® restaurants are celebrating Anti-Valentine’s Day in true Harley Quinn fashion. On the heels of the February 7Birds of Prey movie release, in which everyone’s favorite anti-heroine Harley embarks on her post-break up emancipation from The Joker, Burger King is turning ex-flames into flame-grilled Whopper® sandwiches. Talk about turning up the heat!
On February 14, scorned lovers in New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Boston can bring a printed photo of their ex to Birds of Prey-themed “breakup boxes” at select Burger King restaurants, to be exchanged for a Whopper*. Guests in New York City can also bring in letters, stuffed animals or a specified piece of clothing to claim their reward.
And, because it’s Harley Quinn, the mayhem doesn’t stop there. Starting February 6, she is taking over an entire select Burger King restaurant in New York City, proclaiming it officially “Burger Quinn.” From the store-front windows and marque, to the ordering queue and even the bathroom mirrors, Harley’s havoc can’t be missed with her signature graffiti and irreverent style. She’s even managed to pull together her very own limited-edition, hot pink #BurgerQuinn crown.
For those who don’t live near a “breakup box,” Burger King is also launching an in-app quiz, giving participants a chance to get a $3 Whopper only via the BK® app. The quiz will feature five questions, and in order to be eligible for a Whopper guests must answer four out of five correctly.
The Whopper Sandwich features a ¼ lb** of savory, flame-grilled beef topped with juicy tomatoes, fresh lettuce, creamy mayonnaise, ketchup, crunchy pickles and sliced white onions on a soft sesame seed bun.
