After Mcdonald's turned down the proposal to create a hybrid “McWhopper” burger to celebrate International Peace Day, Burger King decided to introduce it's own sandwich.

The fast food giant took to Facebook to announce that it would like to collaborate with fellow restaurants on a one-day-pop-up restaurant featuring The Peace Day Burger.

The latest letter calls out on the following burger chains to join hands in this new initiative. It reads: "Denny’s, Wayback Burgers, Krystal, and Giraffas, we’d like to build on your individual proposals to collaborate on Peace Day, September 21, 2015. Our idea would be that we all come together to create a burger that combines a key ingredient from each of our signature sandwiches."

Despite Mcdonald's CEO's -- Steve Easterbrook -- sarcastic retort saying,“We commit to raise awareness worldwide, perhaps you’ll join us in a meaningful global effort?”, Burger King's latest letter states that the offer is still valid for the fast food chain to come on-board.


It reads: "Although they haven't yet agreed to come on-board, our original proposal still stands. Mcdonald's please take your time. We're totally at peace with it".

The letter also revealed that a pop-up restaurant is already under construction. All they need from the fellow restaurants is a "simple yes" and their "cooperation and a donation to Peace One Day" on September 21.

One can only imagine what a burger that would be; an amalgamation of the signature ingredient each of these burger joints have to offer.
