Burger King Celebrates 50th With Hands-Free Whopper Holders
Fifty lucky guests at the 50th anniversary celebration of the Burger King fast food chain in Puerto Rico are now the proud owners of Hands-Free Whopper Holders. The white plastic device is a promotional gimmick from one of the world’s largest burger chains that fits around the neck of the customer. The customer can then insert a Burger King Whopper hamburger into the cradle in order to dig into the juicy hamburger without having to use either or both hands to hold the sandwich.
Burger King also produced a video showing customers actually using the Hands-Free Whopper Holder, which almost looks so unbelievable as to cause some viewers to think the whole thing is a hoax. Burger King shows customers wearing the holder to be able to pursue a variety of other activities, all the while savoring their Burger King Whopper.
Customers are shown walking their dog, participating in a game of boxing and creating a tattoo design on a customer’s arm, all the while blissfully enjoying their hands-free snack.
When the company originally introduced the Whopper burger option, their advertising emphasized the fact it was so huge that most people had to use both hands to hold it during eating. No word if Burger King plans on marketing this device to the general public.
Some expressed gratitude that eating was finally becoming just a little bit easier while others hit their foreheads with their palms repeatedly.

Though not as elegant, this innovation probably one-ups McDonald’s hands-free, clip-on french fry holder because BK has solved the problem of how to eat a burger without moving anything but your face.
