“I’m going to get some Chicken McNuggets® if anyone wants to come get some. Will probably get some sweet ‘n sour sauce to go along with it idk.”
This is a story about a Facebook event – possibly the greatest since my neighbour organised a casual Pokemon Go walk and thousands of people showed up. It’s a Facebook event for nuggets, folks.
Corey Dunkin is a man who enjoys his nuggets. So much, so, he made an event to encourage others to join him next Thursday.
Him and the 1,600 other people planning to nug it up at the Sydney George St Maccas at 7pm, that is – and that number is only rising.
I asked Dunkin…why?
“I really just wanted to go get some nuggets haha,” he told me.
About three weeks ago he decided to make an event.
“To be honest I just thought about what would be the lowest amount of effort to make an event about something. And I thought this was funny to me.”
Until last night, about 50 people were attending.
“It’s so dumb I wasn’t expecting heaps of people to like it. It kind of just blew up last night.”
At present, over 1.6k nugget-lovers will be rocking up. And, well, I’m not sure they are prepared. Because, um, Maccas doesn’t know they are coming – yet.
“I should probably msg them right?”
If you’re reading this, McDonald’s – get your friers ready. Although there’s no need to roll out the red carpet.
“I have no real idea what to do at the event,” Dunkin says. “Just rock up and eat my nuggets I guess.”
Never change, Corey Dunkin.
We’ll be there getting our nuggets on October 6 – if you’re also attending, let us know!
