Kanye West Is Redesigning McDonalds' Packaging, Which Means Every Big Mac Box Will Look Like Kim Kardashian's Ass
Kanye West is breaking his social media silence to let folks know what he's been cooking up ... a new design for McDonald's packaging.
That's right. Kanye posted about his new business venture, Monday, on Instagram ... after being ghosted from the platform for the last few months.
He posted a photo of the potentially new design and wrote, "Ye teams up with legendary Muji industrial designer Naoto Fukasawa to reimagine McDonald’s packaging" ... just after posting an IG story that said, "Next week it's the fries".
BTW, the fries line is an ode to Ye's verse in his song "Gold Digger" where he raps, "He got that ambition, baby, look at his eyes. This week he moppin' floors, next week it's the fries."
I'm already grossed out. A redesign? Sure, Mickey D's has had the same look for a long time, everyone loves to change it up every once in a while. But this? Kanye West is going to design boxes that already look like they contain greasy, expired food? Why would anyone agree to this?
Sure, its popular for music stars to get involved with menu items, we all went apeshit over the Travis Scott meal. Doja Cat and Dolly Parton are single handedly bringing back the Mexican Pizza at Taco Bell. A design from Kanye is always going to be industrial, dark colors, meant to look "worn" and has a little wear and tear, and no one can deny its worked in fashion. Have you all seen these VILE, GROTESQUE shoes from Balenciaga? We can blame Kanye.
Call me crazy, but I don't want my Big Mac box to look like it was run over by an 18 wheeler before my UberEats guy drops it off. I don't want holes in my fry bag, I don't want dirt on my McFlurry.
The conspiracy in me also says…why is he reaching back to a song, Gold Digger, to "inspire him"? Is this a message to Kim? Is he trying to get this song back on the charts so she has to hear it all the time? Are they making that line of the song the new McDonalds slogan? The next line in the song is literally "So stick by his side." In the mind of Kanye, everything he does is to get back at, or get back with, Kim. My drama senses are tingling, and this feels a little on the nose, Ye.
