Pray tell me, why am I not surprised?
Let’s start with the basics: McDonald’s Singapore announced that Hello Kitty’s BFF has been molded into a holder that you probably could buy from gift shops. As long as you buy something from McDonald’s, you can get the holder for $6.90.
Here’s how it looks like:
I don’t know what’s the fuss all about, but I can’t deny that the fuss is real.
Because within hours of its release, it’s…sold out. In all outlets. Despite the limit of five sets per customer.
And by the way, if you think it’ll be restocked, you’ll be disappointed. Read on.
Long Queues in McDonald’s Outlets
According to STOMP, a reader has spotted a queue of 15 to 20 people in the McDonald’s outlet that’s in front of Bukit Batok MRT Station at…5:55 a.m.
In the official McDonald’s website, it states that the holder would be available from 4:00 a.m. this morning.
In other words, I think many people had McDonald’s breakfast this morning #justsaying
But I won’t need to tell you that all outlets should have a snaking queue this morning. No wonder my colleague is late.
Even Cars Are Queuing Up
According to a Facebook user, this queue appeared on Punggol SAFRA:
And it was 4+ a.m.
Like a wise man once said, “Waking up for work is difficult. Waking up for Hello Kitty or his BFF is easy.”
I totally concur.
As you might have guessed, not all of them were fans of the cat with a mouth.
