For some, this bounty is too bitter a burger…
A video is currently going viral on the internet, in which a Burger King employee is being shown. The man claims to have worked at the fast-food giant for 27 years without a single day’s absence during that time.
The 45-second video has been viewed more than two million times on Twitter alone. In it you can see the unknown person who, according to his own statements, opens the bag thanks to his long service with the company. It’s not entirely clear whether the gifts came from Burger King (according to Statista, worldwide sales in 2021: more than $1.8 billion) or affiliates.
And what did the man get without a day off for 27 years according to the clip? A movie ticket, a box of chocolates, a Starbucks mug, a key holder plus fob, two pens and two boxes of candy.
The video sparked a controversy online. Some admire the modesty and note that the employee is sincerely happy over the smallest of things. In fact, he repeatedly says “thank you very much” and that the gifts are “very nice”. There’s a double thumbs up and comment at the end: “Loyalty pays.”
Most users are certain that the man holds the fries or his associates via cocoa or ketchup and that the gift – depending on their opinion – can be classified between “scrap” and “outrageous.”
One user wrote: “The guy worked for Burger King for 27 years and wasn’t even rewarded with $27 gifts.” Another call on Instagram: “He deserves his branch!” A woman loves kids cardboard headgear and says, “Hey Burger King, you lost your crown.”
