The ad, directed by Wesley Chan of Wong Fu Productions, promotes the fast food chain’s limited offer of bacon in its classics, namely Big Mac Bacon, Quarter Pounder with Cheese Bacon, and Cheesy Bacon Fries.
In the 30-second commercial, Liu and Bow question, “Is bacon the best thing to happen to McDonald’s Classics?” or “Are McDonald’s Classics the best thing to happen to bacon?”
The spot ends with the two having a dance-off.
Apparently, the ad is inspired by Liu and Bow’s parody of BTS’s “Fake Love,” titled “Bacon Love,” in 201 .
Bow also posted a pun video on Instagram to promote the limited offer.
