Whenever popular fast food restaurants try to shake things up, there’s a common tactic: take a normal burger and make it a color it’s not supposed to be.
From Japanese Burger King’s all-black burgers to the red-bunned Angriest Whopper, this gross food trend keeps rearing its ugly, food-dyed head, causing a brief stir on social media, and fading into rightful obscurity. “How fun are we???” the fast food chains eagerly ask. “Go home, you’re drunk,” the world collectively responds.
Now, McDonald’s in China is getting in on the dyed-bun “fun” with its brand new Naughty Green Pork Burger. Joy.
Featuring a pork patty, an egg, lettuce, and “a mysterious sauce with a hint of jalapeños,” the Naughty Green Pork Burger is only complete with its “notorious” green buns.
The burger is being rolled out as a promotional item for the new Angry Birds movie, a movie based on a phone app game about angry birds and mean, green pigs that somehow has a production and marketing budget of $180 million.
Yeah, we’re saltier than McDonald’s fries. And that’s saying something.
Besides, there’s only one thing at McDonald’s that should be dyed green: Shamrock Shakes. Duh.
