Alex Galchenyuk and Brendan Gallagher may be Montreal Canadiens teammates but they remain rival burger chefs.

Just prior to the start of the 2016 NHL season, both players created their own signature burgers at McDonald's self-serve kiosks. But the question remained: Which one is better?

Customers at a Montreal McDonald's were asked to pick between the two burgers and had a little surprise waiting for them. After they made their choice, one of the two players would gave them an earful via video screen.

"You just made one of the biggest mistakes of your life," Galchenyuk said after a patron picked Gallagher's burger.

"You made him really sad, which makes me really happy," Gallagher said to another customer who chose his creation.

Galchenyuk's brief foray into French is also a pretty funny moment in the ad.

So who did the restaurant-goers prefer as their chef? There was some debate about that too. Galchenyuk said that the score was 5-5, but Gallagher said it was 5-4, his lead.
