If you're going to talk about tater tots, you might as well get the stars of Napoleon Dynamite to do it. Yes, the cult film debuted over a decade ago (2004, to be exact) but there probably hasn't been another piece of pop culture that has embraced—and celebrated—tater tots. So, Burger King has gotten Jon Heder (the titular Napoleon) and Efren Ramirez (Pedro) to help sell Cheesy Tots, back at BK for a limited time.
Now this is a flame-broiled burn. A Burger King location in Queens, New York, has a lock on best restaurant Halloween costume of 2016 after it dressed up as the ghost of McDonald's—covering itself in billowing white sheets and trolling its rival with a special sign that read: "Booooooo! Just kidding, we still flame grill our burgers. Happy Halloween."
Anyone who watched an NFL game on Sunday saw a short teaser commercial about 100 times where Cheetos spokescat Chester Cheetah and Burger King mascot the King were seen sitting together at a BK restaurant, all exciting about … something. That something wasn't made clear, although the King did put a handful of Chicken Fries on the table, hinting at the possibility of a forthcoming Cheetos Chicken Fries menu item, to go along with the Burger King Mac n' Cheetos introduced over the summer.

BBH New York's "FU2016" campaign for House of Cards' fourth season on Netflix took home the top award in the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity's Integrated category.
CANNES, France—After winning a Grand Prix in Print & Publishing at the Cannes Lions festival earlier this week, Y&R New Zealand won another Grand Prix tonight, this time in the Media category, for its Burger King "McWhopper" campaign. The idea was simple, but brilliant.
Not many people know that Burger King pulled out of France for 15 years between 1997 and 2012. But actually, it's true. And the fast-food chain comically revisits that nightmare scenario in a new seven-minute mockumentary from agency Buzzman. Whopper addicts lose their minds, black-market dealers, counterfeiters and smugglers capitalize, and law enforcement officials enter into a game of Whac-a-Mole against illicit trade in a video that manages to cram in every genre trope imaginable.
CANNES, France—Y&R New Zealand's cheeky recipe for the "McWhopper"—a sandwich that Burger King proposed to collaborate on with McDonald's, but which didn't actually happen—won the Grand Prix in the Print & Publishing competition at the Cannes Lions Festival here tonight.
