Isn’t that something you’d want to avoid, because than means it’s less sprite?

Not the only merch he has coming out

I get that they want to tap into his marketability, but I would think McDonalds would be wary of closely tying their name to a single person. It worked well enough for Subway, until it stopped working in dramatic fashion.

I mean 12.3 million people watched his concert in Fortnite.

A limited time promotion isn’t exactly the same as tying your name to a spokesperson.

Saw that ad last night and felt immediately old because I had no clue…

Aww, the CNN described "upsettingly realistic chicken nugget body pillow that’ll run you $90” is sold out already.

I’d skip the Sprite, since I prefer Ice-T.

Animated by Robot Chicken! I love ads animated by Robot Chicken!

Still not gonna buy it, though.

Was it? When I saw it last night I was like, - That HAS to be Robot Chicken who did that, right?

I love all kinds of music including rap/hip-hop and its subgenres, but I am completely unimpressed with Mr. Scott.

No hooks. Lazy beats. Mundane lyrics. How is he a successful “artist”?!

“Less Sprite” sounds like a benefit to me.

Anyway, this guy should be more proud of the fact that he seems to have his own action figure, which is way cooler.

Lemme know when they have a KRS-ONE meal.

Why, in my day rappers had sensible names like Spoonie Gee, Egyptian Lover, and Lady Tigra. Who would want to listen to someone named Travis Scott?

It’s gotta be; the action figure animation, paper cut-out mouth, and the dancing with the french fry scream robot chicken.

Ah ha! “Tell 'em Cactus Jack sent you.” I heard “Tell 'em Captain Jack sent you.” I was wondering why he mentioned the late 90’s Europop singer and sometime Doctor Who companion.

I believe the answer to your question was discussed here:
