Vegetarians and health freaks look away now, because Burger King has launched a stomach-churning Windows 7-themed Whopper. Burger King Whopper 7 Burger King's Windows 7 Whopper is on sale in Japan The software-sponsored sandwich is filled with not one, not two, but an unbelievable seven meat patties. The burger went on sale …
Windows 2008 Server
I wish they do one for Microsoft Office 2010 :-)
After one of those, the grave will be much closer.
me want tooooo!
please don't just let the japanese enjoy the artery clogging goodness!
This is Not News
Balmer has been handing out giant whoppers for years.
Paris because Paris know a whopper when she sees one.
I want that burger!!!
i am in Tokyo - might go an find one of those...
Now repeat after me:
"Seven all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun"
Now, do it in Japanese:
Would you like..
Would you like Health Insurance with that, sir?
I would suggest...
...that everyone that equates "larger" with "tastier" should visit a psychiatrist. And a dietician.
The priciing does not reflect Windows 7 accurately enough
To start with, the burger should come in 3 (or is it 7?) sizes depending on the needs/wants of the victim and the pricing should match. Naturally The Whopper 7 Ultimate [Uruchimato?] should have every filling that Baagaakingu can muster and should retail for nothing less than 5000 yen. The Home edition is already displayed and the Professional edition would fit in somewhere in between.
Although one can start eating it much more quickly than previous Whoppers, one may find that eating speed and the whole Whopper experience deteriorates as one progresses.
On a final note, Windows 2000 would've been a disappointment in Japan for those expecting a cow's worth of burgers, since the Japanese reckon their years since the accession of the current emperor. That being said, the Heisei emperor would've been in power for 12 years then, so it would've been a better burger, but then I suspect that Windows 2000 is anyway the better OS...
p.s. El Reg needs a 7-burger icon.
I'll get my coat...
You'll need a crash diet after eating a couple of those.
6 standard versions?
Whopper 7 Starter
Only the bun is served - no burgers. Available as a starter only
Whopper 7 Home Basic
Only available in some countries, only contains 4 burgers
Whopper 7 Home Premium
Should be enough for anyone (also available as a family pack)
Whopper 7 Professional
Similar to Whopper 7 Home Premium, it includes a virtual burger that allows you to use your old condiments
Whopper 7 Enterprise
Doesn't smell, so you can eat it in a business environment without people glaring at you
Whopper 7 Ultimate
Vastly more expensive, still has 7 burgers, but if you look really really closely you might spot a gherkin or something to make you feel better about ordering it.
Whopper 7 E (discontinued)
Same burger, but with the salad removed so that you can choose your own supplier of vegetables. No longer available as Burger King have provided the ability for you to remove the salad and install your own.
I see opportunity...
Fail Blog material for sure!!
Have it your way.
I wonder if I can print that off, walk into burger king and ask them to make it 'my way'. (Id 'install' some bacon 1.0 too).
Reminds me of the buddist who walks into Burger king and asks "Make me one with everything".
Can't see anything about a meal deal though - surely you must want fries and a drink with that?
@AC 10:34 (I see opportunity... )
More like Fail bog.
Would you life some fiber with that?
Install Bacon v1.0 and im sold
has a burger got to do with IT?
Even those that claim to like the idea know deep down that...
...an Apple would be healthier
Love it, and (at the moment) would kill for one. After reading that, I'm so hungry my stomach thinks my throat's been cut.
Having said that, what would the Vista version be like? Slow to erase itself from your system? "Hangs" when you least want it to? Probably dozens of 700meg. patties, then forever downloading PFY-supplied smeg-infected 'mayonnaise' upgrades and the price would reflect the same?
Don't get me started on the XP version.
Paris, natch - she'd swallow an X-tra P^Hthick version. Sorry to rub it in, Paris.
I smell a merger.
This is an appropriate advertisement for MS, after all Windoze 7 and the Whopper have a number of things in common:
1 - They are both great to begin with but ultimately your left feeling unsatisfied.
2 - They are both overpriced
3 - If you consume too many, you will die.
4 - The product does not live up to the hype.
