McDonald's Japan has recently launched a contest with the grand prize of a box of gold fries.
By downloading a special app, McDonald's customers in Japan will be able to enter a photography contest featuring the McFry Potato, otherwise known as McDonald's Fries. The "potetori" campaign, which translates to "potato taking," is a play on the word "tori," according to Rocket News 24. “Tori” can mean both to take an item, and to take a picture.
To enter the contest, participants are required to use an app to take a photograph of an item that more-or-less looks like McDonald’s Fries. The app features a frame of the famous red McDonald’s box and a variety of filters, which will allow participants to show off their creativity as they fight to win the ultimate grand prize, a “Golden McFry Potato.”
The thought of a box of golden McDonald’s fries is intriguing on its own, which is why I imagine no additional details have been released other than a photo of the reported prize. Whether the fries will be edible, completely covered in gold, or the size of a typical box of fries is unknown.
The competition will be open through June 7. Good luck!
