Burger King Is Building Artificial Limbs For The Disabled To Promote A New Burger

Burger King left a pretty bad taste in their customers’ mouths a few months back after they recently tried to hack Google. Their latest promotion, however, may actually set things right with their customer base.

Argentina Burger Kings are giving the disabled free prosthetic limbs, reports Grub Street.

To promote the burger chain’s new Stacker Atomic 5.0 burger, Burger King gave away 1,000 prosthetic hands to those in need. Fifty percent of the Stackers’ sales will go towards Atomic Lab, an Argentinian company that creates artificial appendages through 3-D printing.

Sounds like a pretty noble cause, even if it’s to promote a burger.

The burger itself, however, is pretty far from healthy. It boasts five beef patties with layers of bacon and cheese between them. Here’s hoping it’s popular enough to see money money go towards the lab though.
