Patrons at a Burger King in London listened to continuous loop of Toto's 'Africa' on Wednesday, Aug. 8, 2018.

Patrons at a Burger King in London got a little extra something with their Whoppers on Wednesday.

The Takeout reports the fast-food spot looped Toto's classic hit "Africa" — all day long.

The whole thing was in response to a challenge on Twitter. The Camden Town Burger King vowed it would take the time to do some things they never had if only 1,000 people would retweet their post.

And guess what? More than 6,600 retweets later, the rains were being blessed.

On a loop.

All day.

And there's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do about it.

It's all good with Toto.

The 1982 No. 1 hit has always been a radio staple, but it's reached a whole new generation thanks to Weezer's recent cover.

Heck, when you can get Weird Al Yankovic to sing the original lyrics to a song, you know you have made it.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
