Just when you think 2020 has got nothing left to surprise you, Burger King is now urging its customers to go and order from McDonald's.

Following the news of a second lockdown coming into action across England, Burger King shared a statement in which it told customers to throw their support behind fast food rival including KFC, Pizza Hut, Subways and Greggs.

Posting on Twitter with 'Order from McDonald's' as the header, Burger King wrote: "We never thought we'd be asking you to do this.

"Just like we never thought we'd be encouraging you to order from KFC, Subway, Domino's Pizza, Pizza Hut, Five Guys, Greggs, Taco Bell, Papa John's, Leon... or any of the other independent food outlets, too numerous to mention here.

"In short, from any of our sister food chains (fast or not so fast).

"We never thought we'd be asking you to do this, but restaurants employing thousands of staff really need your support at the moment.

"So, if you want to help, keep treating yourself to tasty meals through home delivery, takeaway or rive thru.

"Getting a Whopper is always best, but ordering a Big Mac is also not such a bad thing.

"Take care, Team Burger King UK."

The unusual stunt has certainly got people talking, with one social media user posting: "Pure class. Hope your store staff, social team etc. all manage to pull through."

Another wrote: "I've always liked Burger King and stuff like this makes me respect you and your brand even more! I wish more companies would be like you."

A third person wrote: "Haven't had a Burger King in some time. I know what I'm getting this weekend. Whopper!"

Burger King then followed up the original tweet with one tagging in a bunch of burger joints:

During the UK's first lockdown, fast food chains, including McDonald's and Burger King closed.

But under the new restrictions, which come in across England on 5 November 'hospitality venues like restaurants, bars and pubs must close, but can still provide takeaway and delivery services. However, takeaway of alcohol will not be allowed'.
