Cardi B and Offset pop by Times Square McDonald’s for a Valentine’s Day snack

Cardi B & Offset

Cardi B and Offset celebrated Valentine’s Day yesterday by popping over to McDonald’s in Times Square, New York. Partly, I’m sure, because nothing’s more romantic than fast food for two at a particularly busy McDonald’s store. But mainly because there’s yet another pop star endorsed McDonalds meal to flog.

“While it might not be an official love language, our fans know a true sign of love is knowing your person’s go-to McDonald’s order”, McDonalds declared earlier this week after airing an advert based on that theme during Sunday’s Super Bowl.

Said ad featured celebrity rap couple Cardi B and Offset proving their love by knowing each other’s McDonald’s preferences. Although – unlike all the other couples featured in the ad – that knowledge isn’t really needed anymore, given that all the rap couple have to do at the counter of their local McDonald’s is ask for the official Cardi B & Offset Meal.

That, in case you wondered, consists of a cheeseburger with tangy BBQ sauce and a large Coke (for Cardi B) and a quarter pounder with cheese and a large Hi-C Orange Lavaburst (for Offset). The accompanying fries and apple pie are to share. Or so we’re told. Though, I mean, who shares a McDonald’s apple pie?

“Let me tell you, McDonald’s is date night done right”, lies Offset in the official marketing blurb for the new meal. “It doesn’t have to be all boujee. Get your date, grab some good food, and have fun, that’s it”.

“Whether it’s going for a date night or grabbing a bite after late-night studio sessions… I’m always asking Offset to take me to McDonald’s”, alleges Cardi B. “And now, Offset and I have a meal named after us! I want all my fans to try it – especially with that BBQ sauce”.

Lovely stuff. And to prove their love – for each other, for burgers and cheese, and – of course – for the marketing dollars of McDonald’s – the two rappers showed up at the fast food chain’s Times Square branch yesterday to buy their own meal and enjoy some proper romantic Valentine’s Day goodness. And to share an apple pie, apparently. Weirdos.
