Hungry? Grab a Windows 7 Whopper at Burger King

Hungry? Grab a Windows 7 Whopper at Burger King Microsoft and Burger King have teamed up to bring Japanese consumers the Window 7 Whopper, a sandwich that squeezes seven, yes seven, beef patties into a regular Whopper.
The Win 7 Whopper stacks up at 5.1-inches tall, and the promotion will run from today until October 28th.

The sandwich will sell for 777 Yen, a bit under $9 USD.

Windows 7 launched today to reasonably great critical acclaim and with strong sales.

Actually, I am hungry now. I really don't feel like flying to Japan right now though...
Interesting marketing strategy though. It can be difficult to get a good promotion that doesn't make people just roll their eyes. This actually looks good. Maybe add a little BBQ sauce, ketchup, crisp onions and tomatoes... *suck in drool*

The last thing Japan needs is more fattening food available for consumption....I mean just look at what it's done to America. They say take personal responsibility, but the supplier is still has partial responsibility along with the consumer. (Just not legally)

where i used to live, a local resturant used to sell a burger with the name of suicide burgers because of the amount of patties on it.

If I hadn't already had a yummy burger for dinner last night, this woulda made be crave one.

And younger people in a lot of asian countries are moving more towards 'western' fast food for quick meals over their more traditional food. Kinda makes the everyone being fat in WALL-E thing look like a not-so-incorrect prediction of the future.

Holly crap I didn't realize how big it was till I saw the picture.

Something tells me that anyone who eats that is going to feel more like Windows Vista than Windows 7.

However, if you dare, Burger King is the "Make it Your Way" company...I'm sure they would be willing to make you a Septuple Whopper. If enough people ask, it might even make it to the menu.

Hopefully it will stop them from eating whales.

BTW this burger is nothing, try eating a "Noah's Ark" at mcdonald's.

it looks really gross - a bit like one of those awful spam stuffed doner kebab processed muck spindles that you see spinning away for months at a time in the window of one of those rat infested kebab shops.

What no cheese, Come on.

Would you like a falafel with that?

Asians don't do cheese that much (lactose intolerance).

It's probably because they don't have to put a cigarette-style surgeon general's warning on the wrapper: "Warning, putting the burger down now significantly reduces you chance of having a heart attack"

Besides, in the USA it would have 7 layers of cheese and 8 layers of bacon, all covered in sauce...ignoring health issues, this would cause a lot of traffic accidents...the news would find out, and the headline would be "Windows 7 Crashes are a Top Priority for Police"

That's pretty funny because it's not that far of a stretch to believe. Then Apple would come out with commercials saying their OS doesn't cause car crashes. I can see it, the PC guy in a cardboard car cutout crashing then it catching fire for some reason...

Japanese say Americans smell like sour milk and we say they smell like fish. With cheese on this burger, there may be more Jap smelling like sour milk.

Aww, now I'm curious what the inactive account had to spam...

I'm seriously considering seeing if I could get just a 5 patty burger though. It just have heart attack written all over it.
