Burger King's "Nightmare King" burger features a green bun, and is filled with a ground beef burger, crispy chicken, bacon, American cheese, and mayonnaise.

The Nightmare King will be available in participating Burger King restaurants for a limited time beginning October 22 at a recommended price of $6.39. And as if a bun that looks like it's made entirely of masticated spinach molded together and dried isn't scary enough, BK also did a study on the effects the Nightmare Burger might have on those who consume it.

Burger King's latest concoction is the stuff of dreams - or nightmares.

Burger King has changed its menu in honor of Halloween, releasing the "Nightmare King" sandwich next week.

According to USA Today, the aptly named "Nightmare King" has been clinically proven to induce nightmares.

A new ad shows participants hooked up to sleep monitoring machines after eating it. By tracking various signals from the sleeping subjects including their heart rate, brain activity and breath, a group of doctors and scientists identified whether the individuals had vivid dreams.

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

"According to previous studies, 4 percent of the population experiences nightmares in any given night", Dr. Jose Gabriel Medina, a somnologist (sleep disorder specialist) and the study's lead doctor, said in a statement. Burger King captured some of the research in found footage-style video.

Indeed, Burger King says they got the results they expected. "And what little data there is on food and nightmares suggests that, if anything, fast food should reduce bad dreams".
