To promote the American Brewhouse King Sandwich and its “perfect pairing” with a Budweiser beer, Burger King remade the beer company’s iconic “Whassup” commercial from 1999. The ad includes a cameo from the quick-service chain’s mascot — The King.

You can view the original commercial below:

The menu item is available for an unspecified amount of time at the recommended price of $6.19 at participating Burger King restaurants.

Burger King is based in Miami with over 15,000 locations across approximately 100 countries and U.S. territories.
