Idea

For 2016 Christmas, Burger King gave the chance to exchange spare Christmas gifts for a Whopper on Boxing Day at restaurants throughout Brazil, the UK, USA, Mexico and Russia.

People who couldn't get to a restaurant in person could take part through social media. The first fans to post a picture of their unwanted present with the tag #WhopperExchange won a gift card to redeem a Whopper at their local Burger King.
