The famous fast food chain McDonald’s announced the arrival of a collaboration with the franchise of Lupin 3rd.
The announcement comes via a short and hilarious video (Lupine-style), which carries on various food production projects inspired by successful anime series.
It is not the first time that McDonald collaborates with a historic franchise. In June of this year, in fact, in Japan, a series of burgers inspired by the series saw the light Gundam. Now it’s the turn of the famous thief born from the mind of Monkey Punch.
The advertising video sees Lupine and his companions, in their latest version (the sixth series), order some takeaway. At a certain point, however, Arsenio’s great-grandson no longer remembers what he had to take from his beloved Fujiko. At this point the samurai intervenes Goemon showing an app to facilitate ordering, the Drive-Thru. The video ends with friends walking away eating chips and making room for the famous fast food jingle.
Here is the video of the collaboration between McDonald’s and Lupine 3rd:
