Fall back Happy Meal, Travis Scott is coming for you (for a limited time only), with a McDonald's meal of his very own, and we have a feeling it’s gonna be lit.
“Two icons are coming together, as The Golden Arches meet Cactus Jack for a multi-level innovative partnership,” McDonald’s said in a press release shared on Thursday, September 3. For those who don’t know, Cactus Jack is Trav’s nickname and also the name of his record label. The announcement went on to state that “from September 8th through October 4th, McDonald’s is taking it up to another level, as cultural sensation Travis Scott’s favorite meal is offered at restaurants all across the U.S.”
Dubbed the “Travis Scott Meal,” it is said to include a beef Quarter Pounder with cheese, bacon and lettuce, a medium French fries with BBQ sauce to dip, and as a Sprite, for a total of approximately $6.
“I couldn’t be more excited to bring the Cactus Jack x McDonald’s collaboration to life,” Scott, 28, said in a statement. “We are bringing together two iconic worlds.” During the promotion we’ll even see McDonald's employees rocking custom T-shirts designed by Cactus Jack himself.
Scott added to the official statement by saying, “including a charitable component was key” and that he “can’t wait for people to see what we have in store.” In addition to his limited-edition meal, McDonald's said that with Scott, they would be "exploring opportunities to support charitable organizations during the month-long program."
Scott joins the small club, as only the second celebrity to ever have his name featured on the McDonald’s menu. The first to join forces with the fast-food chain was basketball legend Michael Jordan, to release the McJordan Special value meal in 1992.
Even though we’re vegetarians and won’t be able to try it, were super hype about the collaboration. However, we do feel there was a missed opportunity with the name, we would have gone with Cactus Jack Big Mac.
