McDonald’s announced the release of a “uselessly useful” utensil called a “frork” in a hilarious infomercial hosted by McDonald’s Chef Mike and pitchman Anthony Sullivan.
The frork is essentially a fork, but with French fries. It was released as part of the rollout of McDonald’s new Signature Crafted Recipe Sandwiches.
Sullivan explained that the frork was developed to ensure customers can scoop up any toppings that fall out of McDonald’s new pico guacamole, sweet BBQ bacon and maple bacon dijon sandwiches.
He said, “When savoring these recipes, there’s a hitch you just can’t ditch: The topping dropping,” Sullivan says in the infomercial. “This is a real problem. Wait, sorry is this a real problem? Probably not, but good news we solved it anyway.”
The frork will be available while supplies last at participating restaurants on May 5th with the purchase of a Signature Crafted Recipe sandwich.
The fast-food chain also included a phone number where the first 100 callers were told they’d get a frork and the first 5,000 would get a coupon for a Signature Crafted Recipe sandwich.
The number was: 1-844-McD-FRORK.
