Burger King spoofs McDonalds with "not-so-Happy" meals

And for those that feel a Happy Meal just isn't enough joy, the "YAAAS" meal was made just for them.

"With the pervasive nature of social media, there is so much pressure to appear happy and flawless", Burger King said in a release.

Although the Real Meal may appear to be a snarky toward its rival, Burger King didn't present it that way. "By using its internationally-known reputation to discuss the importance of mental health, Burger King is bringing much-needed awareness to this important and critical discussion - and letting its customers know that it's OK to not be OK".

"With the pervasive nature of social media, there is so much pressure to appear happy and ideal", Burger King's statement read.

Instead of the Happy Meals served at their competitor McDonald's, Burger King will be serving "Real Meals" which include a Whopper, fries, and a drink.

But for 24-year-old Brianna Visalli, it has been well worth it as she contemplates Saturday's FA Women's Cup Final at Wembley. "To be able to play in FA Cup finals at Wembley is a dream come true".

Burger King also produced a commercial for the #FeelYourWay campaign featuring young people experiencing the promotion's range of emotions.

If you're looking for a Real Meal, you'll have to take a bit of a road trip.

The characters in the video talk about their hardships, struggles, and unhappiness. After a variety of scenarios are shown, the people break into song, singing the old jingle that's been given a new twist.

Even though fast food joints are often decorated with bright colors and smile graphics, their corporate strategy inherently involves guilt- and comfort-eating (it's why they always play sad pop songs and ballads in burger joints). They're a limited edition and are only available in Austin, Seattle, Miami, Los Angeles and New York City. The burger joint now has over 17,700 stores in over 100 countries.
