There are a few stepsinvolved in the process to get a free burger a day for the rest of your life.

The Mr. Burger website asks those interested to a fill out a form to formally change their last name, as long as the person is 18 years old or older.

“We’ll even cover the application fee, once you’ve done the deed,” the site says.

Then, the applicant will need to send the restaurant an email with a copy confirming the name change from the Australian government.

“The media, the world, has been gripped with boring stuff such as Brexit and the election. We as a company think people take life too seriously, and this is just a way to have some fun,” Edwards said. “It’ll also be fun to get a sports team of Burgers out there.”

Mr. Burger said there can be more than one winner.ut if your last name is already “Burger,” you won’t be able to participate, but the restaurant said it would offer some vouchers.

More details on the competition can be found at the Mr. Burger website.
