McDonald’s partnership with rapper Travis Scott has given fans an opportunity for a new TikTok prank.
Instead of simply ordering the Travis Scott Meal — a $6 meal including a Quarter Pounder with bacon and lettuce, medium fries with barbecue sauce and a Sprite — some customers are voicing cryptic messages and playing the rapper’s popular song “Sicko Mode” at the drive-thru window.
The fast food chain even reportedly sent a memo to employees warning them about the cryptic messages and the song, and directed them to play along with customers.
“Various Travis Scott Meal marketing materials include the line, ‘Say Cactus Jack sent you’, leading some customers to say, ‘Cactus Jack sent me’ or other social-media-inspired variations including: ‘It’s lit, sickomode,’ ‘The fornite guy burger,’ or ‘You know why I am here’ (while playing Travis Scott music),” the memo said, according to Insider. “To reduce confusion, please make crew aware of these monikers or alternate ordering methods.”
