Last week, Burger King extended a beautiful olive branch to McDonald's in the form of a limited edition one-location-for-only-one-day sandwich it dubbed the McWhopper.
This amazing sign of unity between the two titans of the fast food industry was supposed to take place in Atlanta on the International Day of Peace on September 21.
For a few minutes, it actually seemed like this was going to happen. A video was made, print ads were taken out and the concept of a Big Mac-Whopper hybrid had the Internet buzzing.
Then, McDonald's posted the most buzzkill-y Facebook post of all time, reminding us it is the culinary equivalent of the Winklevoss twins.
Dear Burger King, Inspiration for a good cause... great idea. We love the intention but think our two brands could... Posted by McDonald's on Wednesday, August 26, 2015
All hope is not lost yet, though!
While McDonald's failed to make our dreams come true, Denny's is looking to capitalize and merge its own Slamburger with a Burger King Whopper.
If there is a god in heaven, he or she will make this happen.
hey @burgerking …or the Whoppaslam©? The Slopper©? The Slamopper©? wouldn't that be whopperslamalicious?! https://t.co/t1FACtBhgv — Denny's (@DennysDiner) August 29, 2015
Denny's is already reportedly taking out ad space to push this potential mashup.
Burger King did not respond yet.
Please, Burger King. We need this. I need this.
