“So I was on my way home when I noticed that [staff of] Mcdo Nangka, who is just outside our village, was doing the #mcdocrewdancechallenge nakaka-happy ma-witness in person! The fan wrote.
McDonald’s employees who showcased their dancing skills came from almost every outlet in Metro Manila and some provinces such as Cavite, Laguna, Pampanga and Cotabato.
While most of them danced to BTS’s “Butter”. Other team members from other branches followed the medley or the remix of other hits from the septet such as “Dynamite”, “IDOL”, “Dope”, “Fire”, “Fake Love” and “Boy with Luv “.
