(RNN) - IHOP has been teasing its so-called name change for a week, flipping the "P" to a lowercase "b". On Monday, the company announced that the name change was just a promotion for its new line of burgers.
The Classic with Bacon: Only bacon can improve on an American classic, which is made with hickory-smoked bacon, melting American cheese, lettuce, tomato, red onion, pickles and the brand's burger sauce.

Fans still wouldn't have it. Fans immediately took to the video, already giving it 13,000 views as well as 650-plus comments within just an hour of being posted. Its most recent notable exchange was with WWE wrestler Braun Strowman, who called them out for not having its grilled chicken sandwich readily available upon his past visits.

Twitter users also shared images of the signage changing at locations around the country to "IHOb". Others pegged the "burgers" gimmick in advance as well. The restaurant's bio says "Burgers so burgerin' good, we changed our name to IHOb".
Last week, IHOP shook up social media by announcing that it would change its name to "IHOB," which, let's face it, doesn't scan as well as "IHOP".
