‘Let People Enjoy Things’, Say Netizens Over McDonald’s BTS Meal Craze
Last week, the launch of the highly anticipated BTS Meal in the Philippines was a massive success as netizens line up and contacted food delivery services to get this limited edition meal.
Although many BTS ARMY in the country enjoys their meal to support the hit K-pop boy group, there were mixed opinions over the promotion. Online comments and memes regarding the BTS Meal surfaced on social media, mocking the promotion saying it was exaggerated, especially those keeping the purple packaging and wrappers of the BTS Meal in good condition.
There are certain netizens, however, who thought of the promotions differently and understood the fans. Generally, the comments say to "let people enjoy things" as it makes them happy. BTS has been conquering the music charts by storm, and they are loved by fans worldwide and not just in the Philippines.
Aside from the ambitious collaboration of BTS and fast-food giant McDonald's, both have also collaborated to release one-of-kind merchandise. A report confirmed that the merch would be released in 50 countries. The merchandise collection launched on June 16, and you can purchase them in the Weverse shop. The new merchandise features designs made by artists in the United States. Some of them are inspired by the latest BTS hit single, "Butter."
Those who order the "BTS Meal" will have a special paper bag with the BTS logo. The meal contains the following: a 10-piece Chicken McNugget, medium World Famous Fries, Medium-size Coke, and dipping sauces of Sweet Chili and Cajun.
Almost a similar case on its launch in the Philippines, ARMYs have waited in line in McDonald's in Sinchon, Seoul, ignoring the light rains as they anticipate in ordering the "BTS Meal." The meal was officially available in the country as well as in 50 other countries.
Some of the customers waited in line either to dine-in or take out the BTS meal. Due to the volume of incoming and outgoing customers, the McDonald's staff ensured that the customers are practicing social distancing, following health protocols, and tracking each customer via QR code scanning.
