Burger King's King Finally Speaks, by Signing, for American Sign Language Day

Chain asks fans to come up with a Whopper sign

Leaders from Glossier, Shopify, Mastercard and more will take the stage at Brandweek to share what strategies set them apart and how they incorporate the most valued emerging trends. Register to join us this September 23–26 in Phoenix, Arizona.

From the days when he would pop up, unannounced, in your bed in the morning, Burger King's King character has never actually spoken a single word, preferring to let his creepily silent visage speak for him. But now, to celebrate National American Sign Language Day this Friday, the King is speaking up—by signing.

And he's asking BK fans to come up with an official sign for the Whopper sandwich.

Check out the announcement of the project in the video below, from David in Miami and Bullitt director Josh Greenbaum.
