Lil Yachty, Who Worked at McDonald’s As a Teen, Stars in a New Ad for the Golden Arches

Lil Yachty has gone from working at McDonald’s as a teenager in Atlanta to starring in commercials for the iconic Golden Arches brand.

Lil Boat adds to his list of lucrative partnerships while teaming up with McDonald’s Canada on Tuesday (April 2) for the launch of their Remix Menu.

As part of the celebration, Yachty starred in a colorful Mickey D’s commercial that finds him rhyming about his favorite menu items for a remix of the fast food chain’s 1988 “Menu Song,” which was based on the 1974 song “Life Is a Rock (But the Radio Rolled Me),” a top 10 Billboard Hot 100 hit for Reunion.

With a heavily Auto-Tuned flow, the 26-year-old runs through some of his go-to’s, like a Big Mac, McDouble, McNuggets, fries, apple pies, McGriddles and a hot fudge sundae to complete his epic order.

“Going from working at a McDonald’s in Atlanta to collaborating on the ‘Remix Menu Song’ with McDonald’s Canada is a wild full circle moment that brought back memories and is such a reminder that anything in life can happen,” Boat said in a statement about the partnership.

From now until April 29, participating McDonald’s locations across Canada will have the new Remix Menu available to customers. Some of the items include wild combinations such as the Chicken Cheeseburger, Surf ‘N Turf Burger, Sweet Chilli Junior Chicken and the tasty Apple Pie McFlurry.

“We hope these new takes on the McDonald’s Menu Song, brought to life by Lil Yachty and Mike Clay, will evoke the excitement Canadians felt for McDonald’s the first time they heard the song, and look forward to introducing it to a new generation of fans,” said McDonald’s chief marketing officer Alyssa Buetikofer.
