Visitors to Burger King on Tottenham Court Road in London were greeted with some interesting new signage this morning (21 April). Rebranded as Burger Queen for the day, the stunt was devised by PsLive, alongside Isobar and Vizeum. The idea was only floated the day before, meaning the teams had just 12 hours to get the branding in place. PsLive said the idea behind the stunt was to get people talking about Burger King, while giving a nod to Her Majesty's 'whopper' of a big day.
