Recently, McDonald’s announced their new meal that will be inspired by BTS. The BTS Meal will be available in 40 countries across the world, starting with their first release in the United States. In India, the BTS Meal would be available in Delhi on June 1, and also in Mumbai on June 4 respectively. The meal includes 10 pieces of Chicken McNuggets, medium fries, medium coke, and for the first time, two dips of Sweet Chilli and Cajun, which would be sold outside South Korea also for the first time.
BTS Army are eagerly waiting for the new meal to hit their home country. They made a lot of memes and jokes about the meal, wondering if after their launch, McDonald’s would run out of stock due to the demand and fan following of the BTS band.
The burger giant has seen a fall in its revenue outside the United States due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. With people restricting themselves to their homes, McDonald’s is trying everything out to attract more customers to their outlets. The BTS meal follows similar US only deals with singers like J Balvin and Travis Scott, both of which, McDonalds’s says, boosted sales in their latter half of the year.
