In the post, they mentioned, “The backstory to this cyber saga? Well, it turns out, a cheeky promo code we once thought was a good idea (“Fpak20,” ring any bells?) was a great idea and landed better than we expected. In retrospect, offering discounts with geopolitical flair is a gift that keeps giving.”

The company added, “Their resume is impressive, in a ‘most wanted’ kind of way, and now, we’re the latest addition.”

Burger Singh also shared their strategy on the platform, saying, “We’re channelling our inner cool uncle and not just rushing to clean up the mess. Instead, we’re keeping the graffiti up for a day - think of it as an open mic night for hackers. It’s our way of saying: Take a good look, folks. Inspiration strikes in the oddest of places.”

They further added, “We’re too busy dreaming up the next big thing that’ll make Burger Singh larger than the GDP of some countries (no names mentioned, of course).”

The tweet was shared on February 27. It has since received widespread attention, including thousands of views and numerous likes and retweets. Many even left comments on the post.
