McDonald’s Revives Celebrity Brand Collaboration with Travis Scott Burger

Twenty eight years ago, McDonald’s partnered with Michael Jordan to brand, market, and sell their meals. The fast-food chain has not attempted a celebrity branded partnership since…until now. On September 8, Variety reported the brand collaboration between McDonald’s and Travis Scott. Fans of Travis’ psychedelic hip-hop can now order his signature McDonald’s meal: a fully loaded quarter pounder, with fries, BBQ sauce, and a Sprite. The publicity drop coincides with the release of Scott’s collaborative merchandise and clothing line flashing a vintage McDonald’s look.

In this Business Casual snippet, hosts Daniel Litwin and Tyler Kern consider McDonald’s high profile attempt at influencer marketing. Will the product, a decked out burger, be enough to get target customers in the drive through? Litwin and Kern break down takeaways of this brand partnership and what marketers can take away from the collaboration.
