Are you on the popular social networking website Facebook? I am. I added Burger King’s new Whopper Sacrifice application yesterday too and deleted 10 of my friends in exchange for a free Whooper. Each time you delete a friend, their Facebook photo burns up in a series of faux flames and they are notified via email that you deleted them because you’d rather have a Whopper.
It really wasn’t tough finding ten people on Facebook that I wanted to delete. I just needed a reason and a juicy burger was sufficient enough. This is one of the most twisted, yet delicious, marketing ploys I’ve ever encountered.
