“And I’d go out there, but the problem is I’d get caught up in the music … out in the dining area (of mcdonalds)… so the music would be playing and I’m like (dancing and singing to the music).

“At a certain point they realised that I was no help. I was only good at eating the chicken nuggets.”

McDonald’s paid Justin Timberlake, who sang the original ‘I’m Lovin’ It’, $6 million for the memorable “ba-da-ba-ba-bah” ascribed to “I’m Lovin’ It.”
