Burger King is taking spooky season to a whole new level. To help promote the chain's new Ghost Whopper — a sandwich that features an all-white bun — Burger King had someone possessed by spirits taste test the new sandwich. Then, they went ahead, put everything on video, and made a commercial out of it. Joining forces with renowned psychic medium Riz Mirza, the fast-food joint got three strangers — so the restaurants says — and the psychic to stake out the haunted Phantom Wing of the iconic Alexandria Hotel. That's where Mirz allowed a spirit to enter his body and taste test the Ghost Whopper for an on-camera review.
