The McCrispy is McDonald’s Next Big Thing Says New Campaign With The Kid LAROI

It’s the second time Macca’s and the Kid LAROI have joined forces, following the drop of Australia’s first local Famous Order in 2022.

According to McDonald’s Australia, the new chicken burger is so good that it’s going straight to the permanent menu. Apparently, that’s no small feat – moving right in with the iconic offerings such as the Big Mac, Cheeseburger, and Quarter Pounder.

And since Macca’s is confident the McCrispy will be its Next Big Thing, in the launch campaign from DDB Sydney in partnership with OMD, the burger is schooled on what it takes and how it feels, to make it to icon status by Aussie music superstar, the Kid LAROI.

“Crispy, juicy and down-right delicious, the McCrispy has my seal of approval and its now part of my go-to Macca’s order,” The Kid LAROI said in a release.


“I love a good chicken burger and am a huge Macca’s fan, so when I found out McDonald’s was launching its best chicken burger yet, I had to get involved.”

McDonald’s Australia Marketing Manager Lancy Huynh added: “The launch of the McCrispy is an iconic moment for Macca’s – it’s our most exciting chicken launch in years and we think it will be an absolute game-changer.

“To celebrate the arrival of our next big thing, we have partnered with Australia’s next big thing in music and culture, the Kid LAROI, to help us generate the level of conversation, excitement and buzz a new permanent menu item deserves.


DDB Group Sydney Creative Partner Cam Hoelter said: “History tells us that when Macca’s puts a new burger on their permanent menu, it tends to become a classic. So, to launch the McCrispy, creatively we thought: What might happen if it did become their next big thing? And everything kind of wrote itself after that.”
