From the Jetsons’ shiny outfits to the sleek chrome buildings of Disney World’s Tomorrowland, silver has been long viewed as the color of the “future.” We’re guessing that’s the inspiration behind McDonald’s new “Modern Chinese Burger,” which the fast food behemoth unveiled in China earlier this week.

The sandwich’s fillings are standard enough—a pork patty with bacon and Thousand Island/Sichuan-inspired dressing. However, the meat and condiments are wedged between an unlikely choice of bread: a slightly metallic gray bun. Reviewers at Time Out Beijing were initially grossed out by the burger’s appearance, but they reportedly sampled it and enjoyed its taste.

If you're visiting Asia and craving futuristic fast food, the Modern Chinese Burger will be available at select locations in China until November 3—giving customers just a little more than two weeks to decide whether they’re, well, lovin’ it.
