Open Post: Hosted By Burger King Copying The “Celebrity Meals” Of McDonald’s
In all fairness when I’m hungry I don’t think to myself, “I wonder what kind of fast food items celebrities like to order?” Because I don’t care. Give me the cheapest thing on the menu and let me make it home before the bubble guts claim my existence. However, McDonald’s started the trend when they introduced a line of celebrity meals featuring musical acts like BTS, Saweetie, and Kylie Jenner’s favorite sperm donor Travis Scott. Now Burger King has decided to enter the ring with their own line of celebrity meals, and by “celebrities” I mean a few B-listers who are smart enough to not turn down a husky check from Burger King.
According to Delish, Burger King understands the assignment of enlisting famous people to help pimp off their wares. And for their line of offerings, they have hired Brazilian singer Anitta, TikTok influencer Lil Huddy, and early-aughts rapper and accused predator Nelly. But in a delicious twist, they aren’t going to be using their stage names. For this endeavor, Burger King plans on using all of their real names in an initiative called “Keep It Real Meals”. And each of their menu items falls in line with the type of food they enjoy the most.
Nelly’s selections, aka the Cornell Haynes Jr Meal, include a flame-grilled Whopper with cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, mayo, and ketchup. On the side is a small order of fries and a small Sprite.
Anitta’s choice (the Larissa Machado Meal) includes the Impossible Whopper with lettuce, tomato, pickles, ketchup, and mustard, along with a small fry and Sprite.
The Lil Huddy’ meal—welcome to the Chase Hudson Meal—has a hand-breaded Spicy Ch’King with cheese, a four-piece order of mozzarella sticks, and a 16-ounce chocolate shake.
If we’re going to keep it all the way 100, let’s identify these meals without all the preservatives and bullshit. They can call Nelly’s meal, The Hot In Herre, since it’ll probably flame up your insides. Annita apparently thinks eating plant-based food drizzled in grease and sugary tomatoes is healthy so let’s call her meal The Delusional Delight. Finally, Lil Huddy must be catering to the after-hours crowd so let’s call his meal, the Hungover Hoez Happy Meal. And if they ever decide to use any of these names, I will take payment in the form of a check (no BK gift certificates, please).
