A German burger restaurant Burgermeister representative said in a comment to StopFake that they have no relation to the video circulating online. Due to the misuse of their name and logo, the company intends to contact law enforcement authorities to investigate this incident.
Pro-Russian Telegram channels, as well as some social media users, are sharing a promotional video supposedly made by the famous burger joint in Berlin, Burgermeister, which calls in its video to “talk about something more important than Ukraine”, namely, about their “new line of tasty and juicy burgers”.
“The Ukrainian topic has already exhausted Europeans so much that it can be used as anti-advertising for anything,” the publications say.
Moreover, in a comment to StopFake, a Burgermeister representative said that they have nothing to do with the video circulating online. Due to the misuse of their name and logo, the company intends to contact law enforcement authorities to investigate this incident.
To edit this video, the attackers used clips from news stories that mention Ukraine. In the second part of the video they placed a real Burgermeister advertisement, taken from the main page of the burger restaurant’s website.
Recently, the Kremlin’s propaganda has been actively spreading various disinformation about the West’s supposed fatigue from the war in Ukraine. Previously, StopFake has repeatedly refuted fakes that support this propaganda narrative, in its stories Fake: Berlin Ad Compares the Cost of A Leopard Tank and Ten Operations for Kids, Fake: Most People Leave During Zelenskyi’s Speech at the UN, Fake: Anti-Ukrainian Graffiti Appeared in Berlin.
