The theme "70 years later, the fire's still burning" pays tribute to Burger King's unique flame-grilling method since 1954. The campaign features photos of older couples enjoying time together in Burger King parking lots, symbolizing enduring love. Currently launched in Brazil, it will soon go global.



 

This unique campaign was created by Buenos Aires-based Trans Company and Room 23. Burger King collaborated with fashion photographer Guy Aroch to capture shots of elderly couples. They also released a 30-second YouTube video titled "Chama Acesa" ("Lit Fire"), featuring an elderly couple enjoying burgers and sharing that their bond is maintained by the "fire."

The same "fire" that fuels their love also symbolizes Burger King's flame-grilled Whoppers, a long-time favorite. The video concludes with a special offer for two Whoppers, ingeniously capturing interest while celebrating the 70th anniversary. Sebastian Wilhelm, the creative director, said, "We wanted to create something meaningful and relevant for consumers. The idea of highlighting Burger King's flame-grilled burgers, combined with the brand's cheeky tone and the unconventional portrayal of desire among older individuals, resonated with us."

Co-creative director Maxi Anselmo emphasized the importance of recognizing that older individuals still possess vitality and desire. The campaign aims to challenge societal preconceptions and encourage open-mindedness about older couples. It tastefully blends social commentary with a fresh marketing approach.
