April Fools’ Fast-Food Hoax Hall Of Fame

Tuesday Apr 09th, 2019


1998: Burger King published a full page advertisement in USA Today announcing the introduction of a new item to their menu: a "Left-Handed Whopper" specially designed for the 32 million left-handed Americans.

According to the ad, the new whopper included the same ingredients, but rotated 180 degrees for the benefit of their left-handed customers.

The following day Burger King revealed that although the Left-Handed Whopper was a hoax, thousands of customers had gone into restaurants to request the new sandwich. Simultaneously, according to the press release, "many others requested their own 'right handed' version."
