McDonald’s (MCD) is adding another star-inspired combo meal to its Famous Orders menu with the hopes of attracting a younger demographic to its drive-thru windows. This time, it’s K-pop band BTS’s favorite meal from the Golden Arches.

The celebrity collaboration, the third for the fast-food chain in recent months, will kick off May 26 in the U.S. and throughout June in other parts of the world. BTS fans will be able to order the combo meal in restaurants, through the McDonald’s App, at the drive-thru, or via McDelivery.

 

 

The BTS combo meal, which will be available at participating McDonald’s restaurants nationwide, includes the South Korean band’s signature order – 10-piece Chicken McNuggets, medium fries, medium Coke, and Sweet Chili and Cajun dipping sauces.

The Sweet Chili and Cajun dipping sauces, which will be available for the for first time in the U.S., are not only a BTS favorite, but they are inspired by popular recipes from McDonald’s South Korea, the company said.

BTS, which has hits such as, “Blood Sweat & Tears,” “No More Dreams” and “Save Me,” has a massive following globally with more than 34.5 million fans on Twitter and 40 million followers on Instagram.

McDonald’s is betting on the boy band to generate sales as it hits a note with a younger crowd as fans look to get their hands on the same meal that members Jungkook, Suga, Jimin, J-Hope, Tae-Hyung Kim, Nam-joon Kim and Jin love to eat.

The band’s label, BIGHIT Music said in a statement, “The band has great memories with McDonald's. We're excited about this collaboration and can't wait to share the BTS Meal with the world."

Unique to the BTS tie-up with McDonald’s is a global launch of the combo meal. Previously with rapper Travis Scott and reggaeton singer J Balvin collaborations, McDonald’s debuted their Famous Order combo meals only in the U.S. The BTS meal will be available in nearly 50 countries, with full launch dates viewable here, Mc Donald’s said.

The Scott meal consisted of a Quarter Pounder, a medium order of fries with barbecue sauce for dipping, and a Sprite, while the Balvin meal featured a Big Mac sandwich, medium fries with ketchup, and Oreo McFlurry.

Scott’s link to McDonald’s was criticized by franchisors as some questioned his controversial song lyrics in relation to the restaurant’s family-friendly image.

Prior to Scott and Balvin’s combo meal debut, McDonald’s had not introduced a collaboration with a star on a menu item since 1992, when it partnered with former Chicago Bulls basketball player Michael Jordan for his favorite meal that included a Quarter Pounder with bacon and barbecue sauce.

McDonald’s promises more surprises with the BTS venture. Previously, the chain launched a clothing and accessory line with Scott. It also launched one with Balvin, but later canceled the collection due to production issues, Business Insider reported.

Shares of McDonald's were trading at $232.21 as of 10:57 a.m. EST, down 87 cents or 0.37%.
