When I visited Paris, France with my wife back in 2007, one of the more awesome fast food places I found was called Quick Hamburger Restaurant (or just Quick). It was all over the city, including this nice two floor version next to the famous Moulin Rouge.
At the time, they were offering these awesome Double Effect sandwiches. It was two different sandwiches fused into one. Like this fish sandwich melded to a chicken sandwich.
It looked like these two sandwiches were making out. GET A ROOM, GUYS! Anyway, they also had sandwiches that melded burgers and fish and burgers and chicken. It was a spectacular idea that I’m sad to say never caught on here in the States.
Well, Quick is trying to do it again. They currently have a promotion for the Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace 3D release in a few weeks. They have released three new burgers with a Star Wars theme. Here are some ads via MovieLine.
In this ad on the left you see the Dark Burger accompanied by the awesome Darth Maul. It looks like 2 burger patties, a special sauce, lettuce and maybe some spicy pepper cheese. On the right you see the Jedi burger alongside the ever wise Yoda. This burger also has two patties, maybe some regular cheese and what I believe are cheese curds (also used on awesome as f**k poutine).
In this second ad you see the Jedi Burger again. No different than the last ad. On the left, though, is the money shot. The Dark Vador. It looks similar to the regular Dark Burger, maybe just some red peppers have been added on top of the lettuce, but the buns ARE BLACK! BLACK BUNS! It makes the burger look burned. Burned like Anakin Skywalker’s scarred visage at the end of Revenge of the Sith! I love everything about this. I’m willing to overlook the fact that this promotion would probably be more appropriate for the release of Revenge of the Sith 3D in 2014 as Darth Vader is only a child in The Phantom Menace. But that’s neither here nor there because I want this burger in me RIGHT NOW.
I love when fast food joints think outside the box for fun and creative promotions like this. It just sucks when I can’t try them. ROAD TRIP!
