Due to the success of the horror film It, and the pandemic of creepy clown sightings last year, Burger King is trying to jump on the trend with its "Scary Clown Night."

In a promotional video released on Wednesday, a Burger King worker is being chased by a horde of clowns rushing to claim their free Whoppers. The company seemingly took a direct jab at McDonald's as the first clown seen in the commercial looks strikingly similar to Ronald McDonald.
