McDonald's Just Added Another Celeb Meal to Their Menu
If you're frustrated about the shortages of McDonald's new Spicy McNuggets and the Mighty Hot Sauce that comes with them, you'll be delighted to know there's another exclusive limited-time offer the burger chain has in store for you.
Coming off their hugely successful collaboration with superstar rapper Travis Scott, the fast food giant just announced a brand new celebrity collaboration, which was kicked off on Monday. (Related: 15 Classic American Desserts That Deserve a Comeback.)
J Balvin, the Colombian artist which some refer to as the "Prince of Reggaeton," is lending his name to a limited-time McDonald's meal combo that consists of a Big Mac, medium fries with ketchup, and an Oreo McFlurry—aka his signature order. The best part? Those who order the J Balvin meal through the McDonald's mobile app will get the McFlurry for free.
The 35-year-old artist is a fan of the Chicago-based chain and clearly the feelings are mutual. "J Balvin is a trailblazing international icon," read a statement from McDonald's U.S. CMO Morgan Flatley. "He's always been a regular at McDonald's restaurants during his concert tours, and now we're excited to bring his go-to order to our menus across the U.S."
Balvin announced the collaboration to his 8.6 million followers on Twitter, teasing "more surprises that are to come with this partnership."
Being one of the most successful Latin artists in recent years, it's likely that J Balvin will bring crowds to McDonald's, and another burger or McFlurry shortage is a very real possibility. Not only did the Travis Scott collaboration cause a shortage of Quarter Pounders, but caused customers to sell their McDonald's receipts on EBay and steal posters promoting the meal from McDonald's restaurants.
The J Balvin combo meal will be on offer through Nov. 1 at McDonald's locations nationwide.
