Today’s the day! The new Travis Scott Meal, also called the Cactus Jack, becomes available today at your local McDonald’s. You can now dig into a Quarter Pounder with added bacon and lettuce, a medium fry with barbecue sauce, and a Sprite (ask for extra ice they suggest). It’ll cost you a cool $6.

But would you believe that some franchisees are not super thrilled about this new offering? It’s not like it’s anything extraordinary to create — these are all already existing ingredients anyway with very few changes to menu item.

It’s the fact that Travis Scott isn’t actually a PG rapper. In fact, his music is rather explicit. However, the top executives of the fast food chain are confident that this promotion will appeal to a younger clientele. Mashed has more on the charities that will benefit from this partnership plus some surprises it will bring to McDonald’s employees (hello, new uniforms)!
