The search is on for a new soundtrack for an old McDonald’s favorite

LatinaLista — Did you know that McDonald’s and Latinos go hand-in-hand like, well, a burger and fries?

According to a 2006 fact sheet, over 30 percent of the McDonald’s workforce was comprised of Latinos/as. Also, the McDonald’s Hispanic Owner’s Association (MHOA) is the largest organization of Hispanic franchisees in the country.
So news of the latest contest sponsored by McDonald’s just begs for some Latino talent to enter.
It’s called the Big Mac Chant-off and the folks at McDonald’s are looking for a new soundtrack to the old hamburger favorite.
In homage to the burger that inspired its own museum — yes, the Big Mac Museum Restaurant, dubbed “the most tasteful museum in the world — the contest’s official website, in addition to providing the rules for the contest, also has a downloadable audio kit which contestants can use to “mash-up” their own music or if they’re feeling particularly creative, can lay down their own track.
There’s only one hitch — the final product has to include the original lyrics: Two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun.
The winning soundtrack will not only appear in the next McDonald’s Big Mac commercial but also on MTV.
The contest is currently opened and closes on July 16.
