Everyone knows McDonalds as one of the biggest fast-food outlets in the world, but did you know they are also well known for big collaborations?
McDonalds announced that they are now collaborating with BTS!

The South Korean group lives the franchise so much that they’ll be bringing a one-of-a-kind menu “tour” across 50 different countries.
Some of the meals we’ll be able to find would consist of exclusive 10-piece Chicken McNuggets, medium World-Famous Fries, a medium Coca-Cola, and Sweet Chili and Cajun dipping sauces which is inspired by popular recipes from McDonald’s South Korea.
But you’ll have to be quick as the meals will only be available for one day only. The tour will begin on 26th May and will end on 25th June (depending on where you’re from).

BTS’s label, Bright Music had stated that the band has great memories with McDonald’s, and they are excited and can’t wait to share the BTS meal with the world.
For those in South East Asia, Malaysia will get the meal on the 26th of May. As for Singapore and Vietnam, they’ll be getting it on the 27th of May. Philippines and Indonesia will later enjoy the meals in 18th June and 25th June.
Unfortunately, Brunei and Thailand were not invited to the tour. Good time to get the vaccine jabs and travel into a neighbour country for a meal maybe?
This is the first time that McDonalds will launch their celebrity signature orders programme to a global audience. Previously, these signature meals were offered exclusively in the U.S.
“No matter who you are, everyone has a go-to order at McDonald’s – even international superstars like BTS,” said McDonald’s Malaysia's Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer Melati Abdul Hai.
The BTS Meal will be available for in-store orders, Dive Thru and also via McDelivery!
In the past, McDonalds collaborated with Travis Scott (which was not available in Malaysia sadly).

The restaurant featured signature meals and he even had some “hypebeast” apparel and collectables.

I wonder if McDonalds will have anything else on top of the signature meals from BTS. Would be pretty cool if they designed a collectable for those who purchase the meal. Looks like we’ll have to wait and find out.
Are you looking forward for the menu tour? Let us know how you feel in the comments!
