Several social media posts showed hundreds of customers flocked outside Zark's Burgers outlets, hoping to avail of the promo.


In a Facebook post of Kent Pontivedra, he described the event as "Tsunami Day" due to loose crowd control at SM Bacoor.

"Kami ang aga aga nmin pumila 7am pa. Dapat kung sino unang dumating papasukin at papilahin agad Kung saan yung Zark's Burger...10am ang open ng Mall pero yung mga guard pinapapasok nila yung mga pupunta ng Supermarket pero yung iba diskarte nila para makapila sa Ground floor...Kaya ang nangyari stampede,nagkakadapaan at nagkakasakitan pagpasok sa Mall."


Meanwhile, Pauline Cabal Estrada's video shows a massive crowd having pandemonium at SM San Mateo as people are rushing to get inside the outlet.


'Zarks' immediately trended on Twitter Philippines with netizens expressing their views on the incident.
