McDonald’s Travis Scott Meal Leads to Viral TikTok Trend, Employee Memo, Ingredient Shortages

Published

on

McDonald’s staffers unfamiliar with the slang of “Sicko Mode” got schooled on all things Travis Scott as the rapper’s branded meal continues to sell swiftly coast-to-coast. Driving demand for the meal — which includes a Quarter Pounder with cheese, bacon, lettuce, pickles, ketchup and mustard; medium fries (with BBQ Sauce for dipping); and a Sprite — is a TikTok trend that has fans blasting the rapper’s track “Sicko Mode” at McDonald’s drive-thru windows, both amusing and annoying employees.

In the now-viral videos, fans drive up to order, then quickly blast the song to the worker taking their order. Sometimes they accompany the request with phrases such as, “you know what I want.”

Executives at McDonald’s took notice and sent out a memo to franchises addressing the trend, according to Business Insider. It reads: “Various Travis Scott Meal marketing materials include the line, ‘Say Cactus Jack sent you’, leading some customers to say, ‘Cactus Jack sent me’ or other social-media-inspired variations including: ‘It’s lit, sickomode,’ ‘The fornite guy burger,’ or ‘You know why I am here’ (while playing Travis Scott music). To reduce confusion, please make crew aware of these monikers or alternate ordering methods.”

 

The memo also encourages franchises to “make sure crew knows how much you appreciate their efforts in support of this promotion.”

The video clips uploaded to TikTok show a range of reactions from workers, many of whom quickly recognize the music as a request for the Travis Scott Meal. But one trending TikTok shows a customer ordering the menu item and an employee asking, “Are you going to blast music in my ears?”

The social media trend comes as the restaurant can barely keep up with the Travis Scott meal. According to USA Today,  McDonald’s has experienced shortages of the meal’s key ingredients. Overwhelming demand was cited as one of the factors for the ingredients selling out.

Starting Sept. 22, the meal will only be available through the McDonald’s app.

Gwyneth Paltrow Says Co-Parenting With Chris Martin Is “Some Days Not as Good as It Looks”

  • Gwyneth Paltrow said she and ex-husband Chris Martin have “good days and bad days” while co-parenting their kids Apple nad
  • The actress opened up about their relationship during a chat with Drew Barrymore on The Drew Barrymore Show.

    Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin give off vibes of exes who get along super well and have nailed the whole co-parenting thing, but apparently things aren’t always easy. As a reminder: these two ~consciously uncoupled~ back in 2016 after 12 years of marriage, and have remained close while raising their kids Moses and Apple.

    “It’s like you’re ending a marriage but you’re still in a family. That’s how it will be forever,” Gwyneth explained on Tuesday’s episode of The Drew Barrymore Show, via People. “Some days it’s not as good as it looks. We also have good days and bad days, but I think it’s driving towards the same purpose of unity and love and what’s best for [our kids].”

    “My divorce and my relationship with Chris now is better than our marriage was, so I think that it can be done,” she said, later adding “We have this idea that just because we break up we can’t love the things about the person anymore that we loved and that’s not true.”

    Apparently, Gwyneth and Chris spoke to a doctor who gave them “a rubric” for successful co-parenting, and the key is accountability and knowing everything is 50/50.

    “You are also holding the other person in this sphere of humanity,” she explained. “We are all part good and part bad. It’s not binary—we are all gray area. We all are trying our best. I really wanted my kids to not be traumatized, if it were possible. Chris and I committed to putting them first and that’s harder than it looks because some days you really don’t want to be with the person that you are getting divorced from. But if you’re committed to having family dinner, then you do it. And you take a deep breath and you look the person in the eye and you remember your pact and you smile and you hug … and recommit to this new relationship that you are trying to foster.”

    Wow, I truly strive to be this emotionally mature one day.
