With the pervasive nature of social media, there’s a lot of pressure to appear happy and perfect. Burger King understands that no one is happy all the time which is why they’re asking guests to order a Whopper meal based on how they might be feeling in a new campaign by MullenLowe U.S. The new boxes, dubbed Real Meals, come in a variety of different moods – and ‘happy’ isn’t one of them. The Real Meal moods include the Pissed Meal, Blue Meal, Salty Meal, YAAAS Meal and DGAF Meal.
The campaign launched with a film that takes an intimate and raw look into the reality of feeling your way. The film also commemorates the classic ‘Have It Your Way’ track from the 1970s Burger King commercials, but with a modernized twist that abandons the shiny and happy and instead follows individuals staying true to themselves. The chorus of ‘Have It Your Way’ is swapped out with something a bit more revealing and authentic: ‘Feel Your Way.’
To help bring attention to this important cause, Burger King partnered with Mental Health America on the campaign and launched in May as it’s Mental Health Awareness Month. Mental Health America is the nation’s leading community-based non-profit dedicated to addressing the needs of those living with mental illness and to promoting the overall mental health of Americans.
