The popularity of BTS Set Menu exploded in Indonesia
According to local media in Indonesia on the 10th, Gojek and Grab delivery drivers who received orders flocked to McDonald’s limited sale of “BTS Set Menu”.
The BTS menu consists of 10 pieces of chicken McNuggets, French fries, drinks, sweet chili, and Cajun sauce.
The box and drink cup containing McNuggets are designed in purple to symbolize BTS.
McDonald’s is expanding its sales to 49 countries on six continents after introducing BTS menus in 11 countries including the U.S. last month. BTS menus are available in a limited edition from May 26 to June 20.
Indonesian ARMY is active enough to plant 8,735 mangrove seedlings on Jimin’s birthday, so local McDonald’s has been looking forward to selling BTS set menus.
When the BTS set menu was first sold in Indonesia on the 9th, Gojek and Grab motorcycle drivers wearing green jumpers were crowded at McDonald’s stores in Jakarta’s metropolitan area.
Gojek and Grab motorcycle drivers sometimes pick up customers or buy food from stores and deliver it.
In Indonesia, the number of confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus infection (Covid-19) continued to reach 7,000 the previous day, raising concerns over group infection as people flocked to McDonald’s stores at once.
For this reason, at least 10 stores were temporarily closed.
Officials in central Java Semarang said four of the six McDonald’s stores were temporarily closed for several days. Several stores in the Jakarta metropolitan area were also closed.
On e-commerce platforms such as Indonesia’s Tokopedia, an article was posted that BTS set hamburgers and beverage wrappers were sold secondhand.
Famous Indonesian chefs continued to make headlines, including eating BTS set menus and posting reviews on Social media.
BTS Indonesian fans showed off their affection by sharing a series of proof shots on Social media that wash and dry the wrappers after eating the set menu.
In addition, dexterous fans recycled and shared these methods with each other in various ways, such as cutting beverage cups and putting them inside transparent cell phone cases.
