McDonald’s Japan Is Giving Away Free Shampoo with Breakfast


The next time you’re a hardworking Japanese businessman taking a break from your marathon workweek to grab some breakfast from Mickey D’s, rest assured knowing the Golden Arches have totally got you covered. No longer will you or your coworkers have to suffer the lingering stench of your 72-hour lack of shower, because now you can lather up your Big Mac with a side of free shampoo.

Throughout April, McDonald’s Japan will be offering its pre-11 a.m. (well technically pre-9 a.m.) customers a choice of chewing gum, skin cream, Sprite or L’Oreal shampoo, free with every breakfast set purchase, though the gift changes depending on the date.

Check out the line-up below as provided by Rocket News:

  • April 8: Recaldent Blooming Mint-flavour chewing gum
  • April 15: L’Oreal Elseve shampoo
  • April 22: Pouches of Uno and Elixir-branded skin cream
  • April 29: A 350ml can of Sprite.

Now, why anyone would want a can of Sprite instead of just grabbing it from the soda fountain is beyond me (is there a secret Japanese hair care regime built around lemon-lime soda?), but knowing that if worst comes to worst, I’ll be able to wash my hair with L’Oreal while waiting for my Chicken McNuggets to come out is definitely a plus.

Just one question: Can I super-size it?
