Burger King's new hamburger doesn't just look scary, the restaurant chain says it may actually keep you up at night.

The burgers is topped with a green bun and comes with a quarter pound of beef, a chicken filet, American cheese, bacon, mayonnaise, and onion. The burger includes a "mix of proteins like bacon, chicken and beef", as well as some oozy cheese. It's all pretty basic sleep science, stacked on a green bun and served along with some impressive marketing to appeal to those who live for the spirit of Halloween. Burger King conducted "a scientific study over 10 nights with 100 participants (or should we say victims?) who ate the Nightmare King before they went to bed", according to USA Today.

If you'd like to roll the dice and see if you can induce some meaty nightmares, the Nightmare King is available until October 22.

"Someone in my dream turned into the burger". "But, after eating the Nightmare King, the data obtained from the study indicated that the incidence of nightmares increased by three and a half times".

Facebook's lead European Union data regulator, the Irish data protection commissioner, last week opened an investigation into the breach.

Burger King is also offering the ideal spooky drink to help wash down the nightmare burger.

Another participant said aliens started attacking the boat he was on during his bad dream.

"Someone. transformed into the figure of a snake", reported one of the study's subjects when asked about her dream. He said it leads to "an interruption of the subjects' REM (Rapid Eye Movement) cycles, during which we experience the majority of our dreams".

That's all well and good, but isn't there also a distinct difference between having nightmares because something scared you versus having nightmares because your dinner was an assault on your vital organs?! Did they do a control group?
