All I Want for Valentine's Day Is This $12,500 Big Mac Ring

With Valentine’s day just around the corner, it's impossible not to think about love, commitment, and lets be honest, jewelry. By this point, you might have accepted that you’re not going to find your night in shining armor who will provide you with the V-day of your dreams, so it's time to start thinking about what's really been there for you all along: McDonalds. 

After going home with it on far too many occasions, the Big Mac been your source of comfort, warmth, and even...lust. Well, now it's time to show your love and appreciation for the carbs that have always loved you with a $12,500 Big Mac Ring, appropriately dubbed the Bling Mac.

This ring made of gold, diamonds, sapphires and other gems, can be yours––but there’s just one catch. Before you get out your check book and spend your tuition money, this ring isn’t actually for sale. Instead, you have to win the ring, by tweeting @Mcdonalds, stating your “vows of love” to the iconic burger. From now until February 14, if you tweet with the hashtag #BlingMacContest, you’ll be set to enter the contest. The winner will be whoever has the "most witty, comedic and romantic tweet,” which means that I think it's time to start looking to some of Shakespeare’s best work for inspiration. 

I would give you some examples, but I’m definitely entering this competition too. 

While there's a good chance that I probably won’t score this bling, there are still other options available if you want to show off your Big Mac love. While the ring was in celebration of its 50th anniversary, McDonalds has also recently given away lower-end merch, including towels and hoodies, and has even teamed up with the Japanese brand Beams to create totes, phone cases and T-shirts in celebration everyone’s favorite burger. 

I don’t know about you, but talking Big Macs this much has made me so hungry, and, obviously, I’m craving a Big Mac. Good move McDonalds.
