McDonald’s Philippines goes all out
To celebrate the launch of the BTS Meal, Mcdonald’s PH decided that they weren’t just going to send out a simple tweet. They understood the assignment and decided to decorate many of their restaurants with purple balloons, streamers, and other BTS themed decorations. They also played BTS songs in the restuarants and had signs that said things like “This is the maknae line” and “Dancers line up here”. It’s clear that PH ARMY loved the care and dedication they placed into it.

Biggest McDonalds in the Philippines is awash in purple
Out of all the McDonald’s branches that were decorated for the launch, the one that really got our attention was the branch in San Fernando, Pampanga. The McDonald’s branch there is not only the biggest in the country, but it is the biggest in Asia. The branch at Capital Town turned purple and had a lot of purple-colored decorations surrounding the branch.

Customizing and preserving the packaging
For ARMY, the BTS Meal isn’t just a meal to eat and enjoy. It also serves as a collector’s item and something for the fans. After all, this collaboration won’t last and already people have bought the BTS Meal packaging online for thousands of pesos. Because of this, a few creative Pinoy ARMY decided to customize the packaging and turn it into all sorts of items. A few framed the packaging, others turned it into a key chain, some made it into a journal spread, and someone even turned it into a ref magnet. Check out some of the creative ways ARMY immortalized the packaging below.

I feel so extra today. So I made my bts meal packaging more special. Instead of throwing it away, I recycled them and made some stuff out of it. ?? #BTSXMcDonalds #BTSMealPH @McDo_PH ? pic.twitter.com/3oshNNxIAN— KC ?? (@vnillakoone) June 17, 2021
