It was just last month that Mc Donald launched its first celebrity-branded meal since 1992 with Travis Scott and it was successful.
And now J Balvin joins Travis Scott whose meal is ‘Travy Patties’ and TikTok star Charlie D’Melio’s Dunken Donuts special.
Customers who purchase “The J Balvin Meal” include a Big Mac (no pickles), fries and an Oreo McFlurry. According to a statement from the fast-food chain, the prices vary at different locations.
In an interview with Complex, J Balvin’s answer to the meal question is quite endearing. He said,
“I grew up with McDonald’s. I wasn’t born in the States, but since I was a kid, I was eating McDonald’s meals. When I had my very first chance to get to the States, It was like a dream to me, coming from Colombia to my first time having a McDonald’s meal. It’s those types of moments that connect with me as a child. And when they called me saying that they wanted to work with me, I immediately said yes because it connects with me and my childhood. I’ve always been a big fan. It’s crazy to have your own meal. Basically, the meal that I have here is in the chain: a McFlurry, Big Mac with no pickles, of course, medium fries, the ketchup, and tray. I just wanted to do something different with it.”
The J Balvin meal will be available at participating restaurants starting today and running through 11/1.
