Is it just me, or is McDonald's being super extra this year (video below)?
First it released its series of video ads that promoted the golden arches as "that place where Coke tastes so good" without ever mentioning its actual name.
Now, it's continuing its new legacy of pumping out super bizarre videos with its latest new creation: the Frork.
No, that isn't a typo. The Frork is a new utensil that McDonald's is introducing that swaps out traditionally metal fork prongs for a couple of the chain's classic french fries.
In the mind-boggling, but very funny, new infomercial, Anthony Sullivan introduces the Frork as the "uselessly useful" new utensil that's here to solve all of our first-world dining woes.
"When savoring these recipes, there's a hitch you just can't ditch: the topping dropping," Sullivan says on screen. "This is a real problem. Wait, sorry, is this a real problem? Probably not, but good news: we solved it anyway."
Essentially, the idea is that the Frork will help you scoop up every last bit of deliciousness stuffed between two McDonald's buns, so none of the food goes to waste rather than into your stomach.
If you want to try out the Frork for yourself, the infomercial urges you to get yourself over to a participating McDonald's locations on May 5, as that's the only day the Frork will be available with a purchase of any Signature Crafted Recipe sandwich while supplies lasts.
Lastly, if you want to find out which locations near you are participating in the promotional deal, go ahead and dial up 1-844-McD-FRORK to find out.
May the Frork be with you!
