The Hip Hop couple shared their love for each other and their food by reciting each other’s orders — a true sign of love, according to the spot, acknowledging food as a love language. They join other real-life couples in the commercial talking about their significant other’s favorite meals.
On top of joining the commercial, the two unveiled their new Cardi B & Offset Meal — the first celebrity-couple meal from the fast-food chain. In the spirit of love, the meal will become available on Valentine’s Day and will be perfectly made for two to share.
The meal includes Cardi B’s favorite classic McDonald’s cheeseburger, paired with tangy BBQ sauce and a large Coca-Cola and Offset’s go-to Quarter Pounder with cheese and a large Hi-C Orange Lavaburst. To round off the dinner, the box will also include a large order of fries and a warm apple pie to share.
“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,” Cardi B said in a press release. “And now, Offset and I have a meal named after us! I want all my fans to try it – especially with that BBQ sauce.”
“It doesn’t have to be all boujee. Get your date, grab some good food, and have fun, that’s it,” adds Offset.
While the first McDonald’s “celebrity meal” was in 1992 featuring Michael Jordan, the initiative was brought back in 2020 with a Travis Scott meal. From that success, a number of collaborations followed with the likes of Saweetie, Kanye West, Kid Cudi, J Balvin, and Mariah Carey.
“What we’ve done since then is we’ve unlocked a strategy that goes back to this idea of being part of an iconic culture” says Tariq Hassan, Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) at McDonald’s.
