they just used me to see if it could work and I proved it could. https://t.co/FkybU6WF5y— Joe 🏁 (@JoeFreshgoods) October 5, 2020
I was supposed to do a superbowl commercial with them. They played wit the money and when I said no, they hired a fake me. 😒😒— Chance The Rapper (@chancetherapper) October 5, 2020
"I was supposed to do a superbowl commercial with them," Chance said to the designer. "They played wit the money and when I said no, they hired a fake me."
It's unclear if or when Chance and McDonalds were supposed to work together. But in 2014, the then-bubbling rapper made it clear that he wanted to do "business" with the brand via social media.
Also unclear is which commercial Chance was referring to when he said the company "hired a fake me" but some have pointed to an ad that was aired in 2017 during the Super Bowl.
Joe Freshgood's comments were in response to J. Balvin becoming the next superstar musician to receive his own menu item at McDonald's. This comes after Travis Scott's collaboration with the brand created monumental excitement around the world. Scott followed this up with exclusive collaborative merchandise and by releasing his latest single "Franchise" which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.
