The queen of Christmas stars front-and-center in the 30-second spot, which kicks off with the lights of a McDonald’s flickering on to the twinkling opening notes of “All I Want For Christmas Is You.”
“This holiday season, you’re not getting the Mariah meal. You’re getting the Mariah Menu, and it’s free!” the Elusive Chanteuse says before launching into her smash hit with the help of an army of uniformed backup dancers and a single Chicken McNugget dipped in barbecue sauce.
Starting Dec. 13, McDonald’s fans can get a new daily deal for free through Dec. 24 by downloading the McDonald’s app and making a minimum $1 purchase.
And speaking of “All I Want For Christmas Is You,” the superstar also took to Twitter on Monday morning to celebrate the song, which first hit No. 1 in December 2019, a full 25 years after its release, reaching a milestone 1 billion streams on Spotify. “I’m freaking out!!!! 1 billion!!!” Carey wrote, adding a number of Christmas-themed emojis. “These numbers are incredible, but the love I have for the #lambily is unquantifiable. Eternally grateful and blessed.”
The latest milestone arrives on the heels of the track being certified diamond by the Recording Industry Association of America. Currently, “All I Want For Christmas Is You” sits at No. 12 on its annual climb up the Billboard Hot 100, while also continuing its reign atop the Holiday 100 for a 46th week on the chart dated Dec. 4.
