Burger King trolled IHOP by changing its name and logo to ‘Pancake King’. This was done in response to IHOP changing its name to IHOb to introduce their new range of burgers.
Burger King went a little far as they changed not only their name but also their Twitter handle, Facebook profile picture, logo and main image on Twitter, all to Pancake King. They even changed their cover photo to pancakes!
The International House of Pancakes (IHOP)
Denny’s, in response to HBO’s Westworld, trolled IHOP with an imaginary conversation where a grandson asks, “Grandpa, do you remember the Great Burger Wars?” The grandfather responds, “lol no I was chilling drinking milkshakes and trying to make sense of Westworld.”
That was not it! Wendy’s tweeted again, saying, “Remember when you were like 7 and thought about changing your name to Thunder BearSword would be super cool? Like that, but our cheeseburgers are still better.”
IHOP – or should we say IHOb – was quick to respond to Wendy’s tweet. They wrote, “We don’t want any beef with you, we just want to share our beef with the world.”
To this, Wendy’s said after inserting a winking emoji, “Welcome to the neighbourhood.”
Comedian Chis Cope tweeted, “Thank God @WaffleHouse will never become the Burger House!!”
To this, someone pointed out that Waffle House does serve burgers. Waffle House then responded with their own subtle hit at IHOP, saying, “Even though we serve delicious burgers… we know our roots.”
Steak-umm decided to give the name-change a go and changed it to Cake-umm. They also tweeted, “Dear internet, we have officially changed our name to Cake-umm because Steak-umm just wasn’t doing it for us anymore or something.”
IHOP/IHOb responded to the tweet, saying, “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.”
Even Netflix joined in on the fun, tweeting, “brb changing my name to Netflib”
The Great Burger Wars continue, and we suppose IHOP would hope that the social media burns stop soon!
