In today’s day and age, I’d say we’re pretty accustomed to the food delivery guy rolling up on our doorstep on a bike or scooter. But Popeyes just took that to a whole new level by landing a Popeyes-branded private jet just outside Burning Man for Diplo.
As if that’s not enough, the plane was carrying some prized goodies that America has been trying hard to get its hands on. More specifically, it held two big bags of chicken sandwiches that have run out consistently ever since its nationwide launch on August 12. So I suppose Diplo does have the bragging rights (and he knows it) with his two big bags of this chicken sandwich.
Just a little more information on how ‘impossible-to-get’ these sandwiches are. A spokesperson for Popeyes shared the following statistic:
“In fact, Popeyes aggressively forecasted demand through the end of September and has already sold through that inventory.”
You don’t need to get too jealous of Diplo though, as the spokesperson also added that “We along with our suppliers, are working tirelessly to bring the new sandwich back to guests as soon as possible.”
Just that it probably won’t be delivered on a private jet.
