Travis Scott Burger Opens The Door To So Many Possibilities

Grammy-award nominated rapper Travis Scott is on top of headlines like an injection of botox into your forehead. For example, he made waves a few months ago for performing a virtual concert in the online video game Fortnite. He also has a child and roller-coaster relationship with the ultra-famous Kylie Jenner. But right now, Scott might be getting more attention than he's ever gotten before, and it's not because of a celebrity relationship or a groundbreaking musical performance.

This one is so on the nose that it's not even worth explaining. The point is, the possibilities are endless. Our only hope is that Dwayne "The Rock ... steady embodiment of fame whom everyone loves" Johnson doesn't announce that he always could smell what BK is cooking, and completely upends the fast-food landscape forever.
