Remember when the internet was trolling IHOP for changing it’s name to IHOB? Well it seems that the restaurant chain’s attempt to shed some light on its burger menu has paid off.

It has just been revealed by the Chief Marketing Officer of IHOP that the viral piece of marketing generated 1.2 million Tweets the first 10 days, amounting to roughly half-a-million burgers sold each week during its peak. The marketing push was an effort to increase the number of customers, and to announce a new line of burgers.

In other food news, blueberry cheese burgers are trending in Japan.
