Burger King’s upside-down Whopper for ‘Stranger Things’ is just burger flipped over
Burger King is the latest company to partner with Netflix’s “Stranger Things” to offer up some nostalgia for customers and fans of the show as they wait for season three to start.
The company announced Thursday it will serve upside down Whoppers in 1980s packaging at select stores beginning June 21.

Based on the video in the tweet, the upside-down Whopper is just a regular Whopper served upside down, like it was put in the box wrong.
Season three of “Stranger Things” will be set in the summer of 1985 when it debuts July 4. The Upside-Down is an alternative universe in the show.
Burger King said on Twitter the offer was part of a partnership with Netflix and Coca-Cola.
Coca-Cola announced in May it would bring back New Coke as a special promotion for the show. The short-lived reformulated Coca-Cola caused national panic when it was released in 1985. Coca-Cola pulled it from shelves after just 79 days.
The upside-down Whopper will be served at 11 locations including stores in Houston, Boston, Atlanta, Dallas, Philadelphia, Chicago, San Francisco, New York and Los Angeles. A full list can be found on Burger King’s Twitter page.
CNN reports restaurants in those cities will also have limited-edition ketchup packets and T-shirts inspired by “Stranger Things.”
