Japan is a McDonald's nation, through and through. Mos Burger, KFC, and Mister Donut all have their presence there in Japan, but McDonald's seems to be king of the fast food world. Burger King? Not so much. It's there to serve the Nick Chesters of the world, but that's about it. There's not much they can do with only 16 stores in Japan.
Well, according to the L.A. Times, Burger King is rolling out the Angry Whopper with an "angry shouting contest" in the streets of Tokyo. Yesterday, people would shout things such as "I need to get a girlfriend!" or "Professor, give me my credits!" to passersby in Shibuya, where about 100 people were gathered to scream their frustrations away.
I think it'd be a little unnerving to shout your frustrations and personal problems out to the crowd of people passing by, all for a hamburger. But I guess this is the least violent thing they could do for the contest.
I enourage you to check out the L.A. Times article, which has a bit of a history of the burger wars in Japan, and how Burger King is just making its attempt at a return now. It's actually pretty interesting. So, I may as well ask, since this topic comes up at every convention: which fast food can you stomach eating?
