Star Wars creator George Lucas knows how to market his product. No other filmmaker has beat to the pulp merchandise opportunities than Lucas but despite the overwhelming offerings of Star Wars products this new one looks pretty cool.
A French-based fast food chain called “Quick” is promoting the The Phantom Menace in 3D in movie theaters with the new black Darth Vader burger, or Sith burger. Yes, the bun is black. It’s not burnt or rancid but made that way on purpose.
I just wish Heinz still made that purple ketchup. It would go so good on that black burger.
I don’t know much about “Quick” but I believe they are the group in France that offered the foie gras ‘burgers’. I think I’d choose the black Darth burger myself.
May the Force BEEF with You!
[via The Daily Mail] A French fast food chain has revealed a promotional snack which really has gone to the Dark Side, a Star Wars-inspired burger with completely black buns.
The burger chain Quick cooked up the black-looking bun – named Dark Vador – to tie in with the release of Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace in 3D.
Although the buns look like decidedly burned, they are in fact simply dyed, and have two beef patties with cheese, lettuce and tomato inbetween.
