According to a 2004 legal document cited by the Smoking Gun, as part of a lawsuit between R. Kelly and Jay-Z over a tour that was cancelled, it was alleged that after a set in St. Louis, R. Kelly did the following things:
“…returned to the stage, bowed to the audience, changed his outfit, hopped onto a waiting ‘People Mover,’ and left the venue before the concert was completed…R. Kelly then went to a local McDonald’s where he began to serve food to patrons at the drive-thru.“
We don’t know how the lawsuit worked out, but we wonder if Jay-Z thought at the time: “Man, that guy loves McDonald’s too much. In the future, I’m only touring with people who just love McDonald’s a little bit.”
In which case he may have forgotten Justin Timberlake’s “I’m Lovin’ It” 2003 campaign for McDonald’s, as JT and Jay-Z are touring this year! So here are:
3 Celebrities We’d Be Lovin’ To See Serve Food At A Drive-Thru
1. Anthony Wiener. Various reports indicate that he is contemplating running for Mayor of New York. Perhaps he should warm-up with a run to become Mayor McCheese. If he did serve at a drive-thru, we’d expect him campaigning with stale jokes about serving wieners, depending on the restaurant chain. However we would hope he would not screw up the orders in the same way he screwed up which photos to post on Twitter.
2. Former 90210 Star Ian Ziering. We don’t necessarily want to receive a burrito from Mr. Ziering at a drive-thru. We just think this would make us feel better about where his career is going than recent news that he will be joining Chippendales in Las Vegas.
3. Lightning McQueen from Disney-Pixar’s Cars. “A car serving us at a drive-thru,” we’d exclaim, “Now we’ve seen everything!”
Stay tuned for tomorrow’s post to see if we’ve seen everything!
