McDonald’s accidentally mocks Vikings fans with shipping mistake

Wednesday December 9th, 2015

The Packers and Vikings are tied atop the standings of the NFC North with 8–4 records, but Green Bay may have just grabbed the mental edge on Minnesota fans off the field, after a shipping error led to a Twin Cities McDonald’s handing out cups with their green-and-gold rival's logo on it.

The Star-Tribune reports that cups were part of a promotion that offers two-for-one breakfast sandwiches following Packers victories, in the heart of Vikings territory, with the location’s manager telling the paper the trolling was not intentional.

The teams will get a chance to settle their differences on the field in the final week of the season with a game at Lambeau Field, a game that could have a big impact not only on the NFC North title, but also on the breakfast options of Vikings fans.
