About

In the spring of 2006 Joe Woody and some friends drove up to a Mcdonald’s drive thru and tried ordering by rapping. Although the word freestyle is used, it is apparent that the rap is memorized. The video became viral within a short time.

Later other videos appeared of others freestyle-ordering at other fast food chains. (Note: The original video disappeared and was reuploaded by Joe Woody with some slight editing, so the view count is small.)

The video was reuploaded to Youtube in December 2006 as an Ebaums World video, misnamed as “Mcdonald’s Rap”. This video has 6 million views and became more popular than the original video in terms of views and searches.

The video can be found on Vimeo, FunnyJunk.com, and more.

Update: Imitation leads to citation.

On October 29th of 2009, four Utah teens from Lone Peak High School in American Fork, Utah were issued citations following their own drive-through performance of the fast food rap. The fast food worker taking their order claimed that the teens were using obscene language and that she felt threatened and that her safety was at risk.
