Burger King announces New Moon meal and swag

newmoon_burgershot

Good news for all you grease-loving Twihards out there. Burger King is here to satiate your appetite – both literal and metaphorical. They’re doing a huge “New Moon” promotional tie-in that features all sorts of kids’ meal-esq products – but for adults. That means water bottles, to those of you hoping for a 32 cent Edward Cullen action figure. They’re also doing special New Moon crowns, New Moon-emblazoned gift cards (so you can buy the Meat’Normous omelet sandwich and other non-New Moon items while still looking at New Moon cast members), and six pack of BK Burger Shots that come with collectible cards featuring “stunning imagery from the film.” Stunning.

Here are your options:

• Edward, Jacob, Bella and group-themed BK® Crown Cards (reloadable gift cards)

• New Moon crowns will be available at BURGER KING® restaurants and online at www.bkcrowncard.com starting Nov. 16 through the holiday season.

• Team Edward or Team Jacob Eco-Friendly Water Bottles are available at BK.com.

• BK® Fan Pack Available with a BK Burger Shots 6-pack Value Meal starting Nov. 16 while supplies last. It includes:

• 6-Pack Value Meal

• “New Moon” collectible cards featuring stunning imagery from the film

• Exclusive offers for special “New Moon” merchandise from other “Twilight Saga: New Moon” retail sponsors like Hot Topic®, Torrid®, Toys R Us®, Café Press®, Borders® and MasterCard®.

• Hot Topic: $10 off New Moon Shirt

• Toys R Us: Free bracelet with any Twilight or New Moon Purchase

• Torrid: $10 off A purchase of $30 or more

• Borders: 30% off any one item in store

Thirty percent off Borders is a pretty good deal, I wonder if it’s only for New Moon stuff? As long as you only have to buy the food – but not eat it – I could definitely go for that. Although I admit, those six little burger shots are super cute. And while I try to place health as my number one priority, it’s rare you find adorable food. I bet I could fit two into my diet plan. And I will absolutely by using my Team Jacob eco-friendly water bottle and wearing my Burger King Twilight crown when I browse for books. Seriously, I joke, but Burger King knows how to get attention and give people what they want. I can’t imagine any brand to jump on board with like Twilight. And it’s smart to appeal to teenagers and adults with your promotions, instead of just kids.

Plus, when you’re wearing your Twilight shirt from Torrid and your free Toys R Us bracelet while eating your six teeny tiny hamburgers, you’re going to look awesome. And that’s reason enough right there.

    OMG enough! please! every third post is about twilight! I get that the books/movies are entertaining, but they are not the second coming. I love this site but now I have to skip every 3rd post where you attribute “sweetness” to Stewart and obsess over sparkles. jeezus

    DON’T DO IT JAYBIRD! BURGER SHOTS SUCK!!!

    When I was young BK used to have these “burger buddies” things that were similar, but they were much, much smaller – like you could eat them in a bite or two and I thought they were so great. This New Moon promotional stuff is ridiculously awesome.

  4. AlaskaJoey says:

    Are the six burgers supposed to be one serving? Because if so, I hope they’re only 2 inches big.

  5. Sumodo says:

    AlaskaJoey, those are tiny burgers. 2-bite burgers. And, since I am sooooo oooooover vampires (except for True Blood on HBO, and even then, it’s just to watch Anna Paquin)I have to question the marketing of Twilight to youngsters. I know it wasn’t their intention, but, let’s face it, it’s vampy romance. Not Eddie Munster.

    Jaybird – Hello? Do you not see the connection? Six pack burgers = six pack abs. How do you think the stars do it? Every day for lunch, I’m sure. Glad you have someone like me to clue you in on their secrets.

  7. Enonymous says:

    All these Twilight crapfest is getting pretty ridiculous now, for God sake there are even vibrators and Twilight underwear with Edwards face facing your crotch area available to buy. So what next? All these marketing stuff is just continuing to fuel the fire of these nonsense. And now we have d-listers jumping on the bandwagon.

    Hahahaha this is fucking stupid.

  9. wow says:

    LMBO @ 6-pack value meal. Shout out to Team Jake.

  10. Wow, this is stupid..I thought most twilight lovers were 13-18 year olds but giving free action toys is advertising to the wrong age.

  11. Are you serious? Burger King will do just about anything to hold 2nd or 3rd place lol.

    I truly pity women who have to suffer those miserable diets or intense exercise sessions to have a toned, attractive bellies. It is good for guys that when we want muscle mass we will shed our fat on auto-pilot, for an upkeep price of your muscles. What I am saying is I’m thankful I’m a guy.
