Darth Vader Burger Strikes France With Disgusting Black Buns
For years, McDonald’s Happy Meals have been a mainstay when it comes to promotional tie-ins, especially for major movie releases but a French fast food chain called Quick has put those plastic toys to shame. The chain recently unveiled the ‘Dark Vador’ burger in celebration for the 3D release of ‘Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace’ in France.
The ‘Dark Vador’ (it’s a French translation) may look like a Big Mac at first, but the burger honoring the dark side (quite literally) comes with dyed black buns. Quick claims the burger is quite spicy, with hot peppers and salsa sauce among the fillings. Darth Vader and spicy food? The force may have been strong with that combination, but just looking at it, despite the charcoal-looking buns, we want to taste it for ourselves. We’re not stepping foot in France, so we’ll settle for this video review.
Of course, this being ‘Star Wars,’ Darth Vader isn’t the only one who gets a burger in his honor. Quick also unveiled the Yoda-inspired Jedi Burger, which thankfully does not come with green-colored buns. Even Darth Maul got a peppery red burger.
You know when the force will be really strong? When all this food comes out the other end.
