Burger King has pitched a neat little idea to McDonald's: that the two fastfood giants come together to make an epic-sounding burger called the "McWhopper." On Wednesday, U.S. time, Burger King took out a full-page advertisement in the Chicago Tribune and The New York Times calling for the collab. In the ad titled "An Open Letter From Burger King To McDonald's," they called for a one-day "cease-fire" so they could make the lovechild of their signature burgers—the Big Mac and the Whopper. Here's the letter:
The burgers would be grilled for the benefit of Peace One Day, a non-profit organization campaigning to raise awareness for United Nations' Peace Day on September 21, and would be sold at a pop-up store in Atlanta.
They even made a video for it (below) and an amusing interactive website detailing the partnership.

McDonald's answer? NO. They rejected them through, gasp, Facebook. (DO YOU HATE PEACE, MCDONALD'S?!)
Sorry, BK. How about you do the collab in the Philippines, and do the deed with Jollibee instead? We'd love to have a taste!
We're so stoked
