McDonald’s stole the limelight with their clever Super Bowl commercial that aired during the big game tonight.
None other than Kanye West makes a surprise appearance in the spot which you can watch below. The rap mogul pulls up to the food chain’s drive-thru in a black Sherp all-terrain vehicle (that’s been his favorite lately) and says, “Can I get uhhhhhh” before the ad cuts away to another character.
McDonald’s 30-second Super Bowl spot also features other famous people like 23XI NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace, the world’s most popular FIFA Twitch streamer Edwin Castro, and iconic McDonald’s character (and recent internet MVP) Grimace.

Kanye has been a longtime fan. He also penned a poem in 2016 titled “The McDonald’s Man” for Frank Ocean’s magazine Boys Don’t Cry, released in conjunction with the singer’s sophomore album, Blonde.
“McDonald’s man / McDonald’s man / The french fries had a plan / The french fries had a plan,” West wrote. “The salad bar and the ketchup made a band / Cus the french fries had a plan.”
“The cheeseburger and the shakes formed a band / To overthrow the french fries plan,” he continued. “I always knew them french fries was evil, man / Smelling all good and s— / I don’t trust no food that smells that good man / I don’t trust it / I just can’t.”
