Some people dream of a perfect, square-cut wedding ring.

Others just want a simple, solitaire setting, or perhaps a halo cut.

For any couple that's truly in love, however, it doesn't matter how the diamond looks, as long as it's made out of a Burger King Whopper.

Wait, what?


In a new German advertisement, the fast-food company helped out LGBTQ couple, Dima and Alvar, who are from an unnamed Eastern European country that doesn't allow gay marriage.

In honor of Pride month, Burger King flew the pair to Germany, where gay marriage is legal, and presented them with a wedding ring made from the ashes of a severely scorched Whopper.

BURGER KING | Whopper Diamond youtu.be

Klaus Schmäing, Director of Marketing of Burger King Germany, wants it known that Burger King is on the right side of history:

"Guests can choose their Whopper in any country, and together with Dima and Alvar, we want to show that everyone should have the freedom to make their own decisions, especially in love."

And the King didn't stop there!

The company will also be sponsoring Germany's version of Pride, Christopher Street Day on July 7!

Twitter couldn't help but give Burger King some props for paying for the couple's entire wedding.

Twitter felt a little strange about getting teary over a burger commercial.


Though many companies take advantage of Pride month to try and increase their sales, most people agreed Burger King's spot went the extra mile to show they actually cared.


There's no shame in crying through your burger.

It's also worth noting that Burger King is now capable of real world magic?

Congrats, Dima and Alvar!

May your days be filled with happiness and love!

I cannot be trusted with chocolate marshmallow cookies.

I don't even like marshmallows, but something happens in my brain when I bite into it and I no longer have an ability to say no. It doesn't even matter what brand - could be Mallomars, or pinwheels, or whatever your local store brand is.

Doesn't matter, just put it in the freezer and walk away. It's best you forget about it, because you'll never see the box again.

People Confess Which Rules Have Been Created Because Of Their Actions

We all did wild things when we were young. Many of us still do wild things now.

Some of these actions were against the rules. Other actions weren't exactly banned but were frowned upon. And some actions were so crazy, no one thought about having a rule against them at first.

Sometimes, we do something so out of the ordinary that a rule is created so it won't happen again. These are often the best stories.
