BTS x McDonald’s collaboration to come late May

Recently on Twitter, McDonald’s tweeted a teaser for their upcoming collab with BTS. As of now, the collaboration is set for May 26, 2021 in America.

For those living under a rock, BTS, short for Bangtan Sonyeondan, is a Korean pop boy group that has dominated the music industry worldwide. BTS has constantly broken records and have been granted many awards for their music. The seven member group consists of RM, Jin, J-Hope, Suga, V, Jimin, and Jungkook. 

McDonald’s has previously done celebrity collaboration meals before. Creators like Travis Scott and J Balvin have been a few of the lucky celebrities to have a meal at McDonald’s. Now with the BTS celebrity collaboration, it would be the program’s first global release. The meal would be available to 49 countries across the world, America being one of them.

Many Armys, BTS’ loyal fanbase, are awaiting this collaboration with McDonalds. Some have speculated what this collaboration will consist of. Even going as far as making fanmade advertisements and false menu items that look SO realistic it could fool the average consumer.

However, the Burger chain announced the meal will include 10-piece Chicken McNuggets, medium fries and Coke as well as the debut of two new dipping sauces in America. The sauces, which were inspired by their Korean chain recipes, are called sweet chili and cajun. 

Everyone knows how McDonald’s gives toys with their happy meals right? Well, many speculated that McDonald’s would give out photocards of the BTS members. If you were a K-pop stan, you would know how much these photos are worth. These pictures of idols can reach upwards of $900 USD. 

In light of the announcement, Armys took to Twitter and TikTok to share their jokes and memes. These memes consisted of taking photocards from little kids to everyone pulling up to a McDonald’s drive through blasting Dynamite, one of BTS’ most popular songs.

As the BTS X McDonald’s celebrity collaboration draws closer, do you think that you would try this meal? If you are planning on tasting the meal, I wish you the best of luck! Knowing Armys, every Mcdonald’s will be packed to the brim and maybe even sold out.
