Big Mac goes rap as contest winner is picked

Let's give a big round of applause to Jason Harper! He's the rapper from Florida who won a contest to sing McDonald's new jingle about the Big Mac...two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, know the rest. Gotta love his song. He's now heading to L.A. to record the final version that we'll now start hearing in TV and radio ads for McDonald's. I'm not a big fan of rap, but I think it's pretty catchy.

Here's the link to the contest can listen to the song here and hear the other four finalists who didn't win.
Now, check out the song by finalist Tamien Bain. There's an interesting story behind this guy. Apparently he robbed a McDonald's in 1994, spent 12 years in prison, was released and decided to enter the contest to sing the McDonald's jingle. I guess he was up front with McDonald's about his conviction when he entered the contest and I guess it was OK because he became a finalist. Hard to believe, but it's true. You just can't make this stuff up.
