“Luke… eat the force…. nom nom nom…”
European burger franchise Quick may be the smartest fast-food chain restaurant in the entire universe. How else were they able to convince Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, and George Lucas to forfeit the force-meat and throw it on a grill? (With two slices of cheese!)
File this under Strangest Promotions of All Time.
With a blockbuster like Star Wars Episode 1 in 3-D hitting theaters, it’s not unusual to see promotional partnerships develop between Hollywood and your favorite drive-thru burger joint.
But finding a little plastic Admiral Ackbar or a back-flipping Jango Fett in your value meal just wasn’t extreme enough for Quick! Instead, this joint invites you to try any one of their three themed meat sandwiches:
Darth Vador Burger: (Darth Vader)
Two minced beef patties topped with one slice of melted pepper Cheddar cheese, pepper sauce, endives and rings of red pepper all between black-colored buns sprinkled with black pepper and poppy seeds.
The Dark Burger: (Darth Maul)
Two minced beef patties topped with two slices of melted pepper Cheddar cheese, pepper sauce and endives all between red-colored buns sprinkled with black pepper and poppy seeds.
The Jedi Burger: (Yoda)
Two minced beef patties topped with a slice of melted cheese, spicy mustard sauce and white mozzarella cheese cubes all between buns dusted with flour.
MMmmmm! Those sound de-licious! Just don’t try to eat all three burgers in one sitting. If the European Quick is anything like our American fast-food burger counterparts, well…
