Just a Cheap Plug?
When Tony Stark vows to quit selling weapons and returns State-side, his very first request is for a BK cheeseburger. How much did Burger King have to pay to get a call-out in Iron Man? Well, it turns out that name-dropping BK is connected to RDJ’s roots in ways you might not have known.
In 2003, RDJ wasn’t the same beloved superhero that we know him as today. One day, he was in his car with enough illegal substances to sedate Hollywood for an entire year. He was eating a Burger King cheeseburger and almost vomited. Because of the burger, he vowed that he would do anything to sober up. Thanks, Burger King!
