Welcome to Pride Month 2022, where we finally have same-sex cheeseburgers.
Burger King Austria released a new Pride ad today showing their new Pride Whoppers, which come with same-sex buns for the first time ever. When you go to Burger King, at least in Austria, you can get a Whopper with either two top buns, or two bottom buns.
The Pride Whoppers come “with two matching buns for equal love and equal rights,” according to the post.
“We stand for the equal rights of all identities and sexual orientations,” the post continues. “A little twist to put a smile on your face and remind us to treat each other respectfully and peacefully. No matter who you are and who you love.”
American Burger Kings had a Pride Whopper, but it was just a normal Whopper wrapped in a rainbow wrapper that read “We are all the same inside” on the inside. This new Pride Whopper takes it to the next level.
I have to admit, when I first saw the burger, I thought it was a joke about two tops or two bottoms. It took me a little while to realize they were supposed to be representing same-sex couples by having same-type buns paired up.
We have to ask, are the two top buns the lesbians? Are the two bottom buns gay men? Or is it the other way around? Does that mean the regular Whoppers for bisexuals? Is the Big Fish Sandwich for trans women? We need a little clarification.
If you’re lucky enough to live in Austria, the Pride Whopper will be available in Burger Kings until June 20.
