A giant sheet was draped over the Rego Park location in Queens, with the words "McDonald's" spray painted on top. Mimicking a typical sheet ghost costume, "eye holes" were cut out toward the top, with iconic golden arches above each cut out. From the "eye holes" revealed the haunting words, "Burger King."

Fog machines installed by the entrance of the restaurant paired with the wind gave the costume an extra ghastly effect.

But, have no fear! Burger King's sign, visible just below the sheet, read: "Just kidding, we still flame grill our burgers."

As proof, they even packaged their burgers in pseudo McDonald's boxes, including the faux golden arches, and cut outs revealing their own logo.
