Getting a free burger every day for your entire life seems like a dream come true. Having the last name Burger, on the other hand, seems like the sort of thing that could lead to a lot of playground insults. But if you’re willing to take the cons with the pros, an Australian restaurant chain called Mr Burger is offering up free burgers for life – and a free name change – if you’re willing to join them in the “Mr Burger” club.

Astonishingly, Mr Burger says there is no limit to the number of winners in this name-changing contest, according to Australian site Broadsheet, and as if the deal isn’t sweet enough, they’ll even reimburse you the $100-ish name change fee. Plus, it applies to both potential Mr and Mrs/Ms Burgers, meaning nearly all 23 million people in Australia now have the chance to get a ridiculous number of free burgers. The only people who aren’t eligible (besides the typical “employees (and their immediate families)”) are people who are already named “Burger.” Talk about being dealt a one-two punch in life.

Yes, even kids under the age of 18 can enter as long they have parental/guardian permission. Sounds like a chance for some serious family bonding time.


To enter, all Australian residents have to do is email the good folks at Mr Burger a copy of their name-change confirmation from the Australian Government before midnight on July 31. Assuming Mr Burger is pleased with what they see, participants will be eligible for “Free Burgers for Life,” described in the official terms and conditions as “7 free ‘Mr Burger’ burgers a week, which will be provided to a successful winner in voucher form at an agreed and advised internal.”

According to The Daily Mail, Mr Burger currently only has four locations and a food truck, and all of your free burgers must be redeemed in-person, meaning you might end up becoming pretty cozy with the entire Mr Burger team. Or there’s the other possibility: That so many people participate in this promotion that it drives Mr Burger out of business. Then Australia would have a lot of angry Mr and Ms Burgers on its hands.
