If you find yourself at a McDonald’s in Japan in the near future, you may want to go ahead and order the McNuggets. Not because Japanese McNuggets are any better than those found anywhere else in the world (a subject I am not sufficiently informed to speak on), but because McDonald’s Japan is running a promotion during which one lucky customer will get a solid 18-karat gold McNugget mixed in with the regular hopefully chicken ones.
The gold McNugget is part of a big advertising blitz for McDonald’s Japan in celebration of a new line of dipping sauces (Creamy Cheddar Cheese and Fruits Curry Sauce, if you care). There’s also a new character being unveiled, a one “Kaito McNuggets” who would appear to be the rough Japanese equivalent of the Hamburglar.
Here’s the gentleman McNugget thief is in action:
The gold McNugget promotion runs from June 8th to the 28th, so you still have time to book a flight if you’re feeling lucky.
