McDonald’s USA LLC recently teamed up with the FaZe Clan to host a “Friendsgaming” day on November 20th as an alternative to Thanksgiving.
For the Saturday event preceding Thanksgiving Day on November 25th, the Chicago-based burger company is promoting its Crispy Chicken Sandwich. In recent years, Saturday has also been a Friendsgiving gathering day.
McDonald’s collaborated with FaZe Clan, a gaming-focused lifestyle and media platform, to host the first Friendsgaming Day saying that its fans are all invited to celebrate their online friendships with the epic combination of gaming and Friendsgaming’s official fuel: with their Crispy Chicken Sandwiches.
The friendsgaming will officially begin on Saturday, November 20th, at 8:00 p.m. EST, FaZe Swagg, FaZe JSmooth, FaZe Booya, and FaZe Santana will compete in a live Twitch stream on FaZe Swagg’s channel.
McDonald’s said, implying that there would be exclusive giveaways during the live chat and that the “Crispy Chicken Sandwich Expansion Pack,” which includes a special DoorDash code for sandwich meals, a headset stand, a phone holder, FaZe Clan and McDonald’s decals for controllers and keyboards, and an insulated carrier bag, is available for purchase from the two companies.
The limited-edition expansion packs will be available at www.CCSFriendsgaming.com beginning November 4th. McDonald’s has approximately 14,000 restaurants in the United States.
