Pharrell will do literally anything to be able to eat at McDonald's

Posted on Fri Mar 27 2009

Some people would do anything for a Big Mac. Apparently, so would some celebrities. In this very entertaining YouTube video, which has received over half a million views in only three days, music producer and rapper Pharrell is shown breaking into song and dance at a McDonald's in exchange for a meal. Here's the problem: It's 6 a.m., and the McDonald's is located in Paris, where the employees seem to have no clue to who Pharrell is. When the employees refuse to serve him anything but breakfast, Pharrell starts singing a classic McDonald's jingle—asking for a Big Mac, an apple pie, a milkshake, anything! He continues repeating the jingle and does a dance in hopes of getting what he wants, at which point the McDonald's staff walks out of the restaurant either to call security or to escape what appears to be a slightly nutty man. A McDonald's rep confirmed that the stunt wasn't commissioned by the fast feeder. However, he was impressed with the publicity. The rep said: "We were surprised and entertained by the video of Pharrell performing [our jingle]. We certainly welcome him as a customer, and we appreciated his spontaneous and funky celebration of our food."
