Burger King dressed up as the ghost of McDonald's might be the best Halloween prank yet

- A Burger King in New York might have scared up the best Halloween prank yet.

In a video posted on YouTube, Burger King revealed what they're calling the "Scariest BK." The Queens, NY restaurant is draped in white sheets-- like a ghost-- with the word "McDonald's" spray painted on it. Eye holes are cut out at the top of the sign, revealing some of the letters on the Burger King sign.

The sign also throws some shade at their competitor with the golden arches. It reads, "BOOOOO! Just kidding. We still flame grill our burgers. Happy Halloween!"

What did McDonald's have to say about  this? Well, according to a Business Insider report published Friday evening, a spokesowman said, "Who wouldn't want to masquerade as McDonald's for Halloween when we are serving up treats like McCafe beverages, apple pies and our World Famous Fries."

By Friday evening, the YouTube video--posted on October 24-- had over 145,000 views. And of course, social media was drooling over the bold move.


The restaurant is located in the Rego Park, a neighborhood in the borough of Queens in New York City.
