Last week, McDonald’s began selling the “Cactus Jack” meal for $6. It features musical artist Travis Scott’s favorite menu items: a quarter-pounder with cheese topped with bacon, lettuce, onions, pickles, ketchup and mustard; medium fries with barbecue sauce; and a Sprite.
Along with the meal, which is available for a limited time, the collaboration spawned an entire line of merchandise, which includes T-shirts, shorts, hats, hoodies and more.
The weirdest item to come out of this collaboration, however, is a 36-inch body pillow designed to look like a Chicken McNugget. The pillow includes a label featuring the fast-food chain’s golden arches and, before it sold out, was available at shop.travisscott.com for $90.
Yes, $90 for a nugget-shaped pillow. If you missed your chance, you can enter your email for updates … but there’s no official word on whether they’ll restock the nugget pillow or any of the other sold-out items.
For those who did manage to get their orders in, the listing says it won’t ship for nine to 12 weeks. The price and lengthy wait for its delivery didn’t seem to be putting off fans. Many of them took to social media to talk about their pillow purchases (or their dreams of snuggling up with one).
“Never knew I needed a cactus jack chicken nugget body pillow until today,” tweeted @capnsaveahood.
“I bought a nugget body pillow,” shared @Meami_Ami. “Highlight of 2020.”

“I need 1 good reason not to buy the nugget pillow,” posted @nvmahra.

On McDonald’s end, the collaboration with Scott appears to have been a success already.
“It has been exciting to team up with a true brand fan whose creativity and love for our food shines through in each aspect of the collaboration,” the brand’s U.S. chief marketing officer Morgan Flatley said in a statement.
Other interesting items in the collection included a Cactus Jack vintage metal lunch box ($45) and a life-size cutout of Travis Scott ($65).
