Travis Scott has launched fast foodies into a frenzy this fall. He has released The Cactus Jack X McDonald’s Meal and a McDonald’s themed merchandise line. The burger joint released a statement saying, “the meal is an unprecedented partnership across food, fashion, and community efforts.”
In what feels reminiscent of a 1990’s marketing stunt, it turns out Scott is the first celebrity since Michael Jordan and “The McJordan” in 1992 to get his name on a combo. Scott’s meal costs $6 and comes with a traditional quarter pounder with lettuce, pickles, onions, ketchup, mustard, cheese, and bacon. With one slight disappointment being that the combo doesn’t come with a toy… To find participating restaurants download the McDonald’s app to find the nearest location.
In addition, The Cactus Jack team helped collaborate on the design of new uniforms for employees across the nation. With Scott also releasing an extensive merchandise line of 48 items on his site. Some of the merch includes an “I’m Lovin’ It” hoodie, “Tell’em Jack Sent You” tee, and a $90 chicken nugget body pillow. Prices are listed from $25 to a humbling $300.
The Astroworld rapper added “I couldn’t be more excited to bring the Cactus Jack X McDonald’s collaboration to life” and “we are bringing together two iconic worlds, including a charitable component was key for me, and I can’t wait for people to see what we have here.”
The Travis Scott Meal will continue its fast food run until October 4th.
