Things people could always use more of: time, cowbell, and Chicken McNuggets, apparently. The first one will never be entirely solved, Will Ferrell handled the second, and McDonald's Japan is taking care of the third by releasing a new 48-piece chicken McNugget meal. And in case you were wondering, yes, it comes in a McBucket.
McDonald's will sell these 48-piece monster buckets for a limited time, beginning on December 1st, 2015, according to the press release. Unfortunately, they'll only be available in the Niigata prefecture during a select promotional period. But if you're there, it'll be a helluva McParty. The release is part of an advertising campaign for Japanese performance group NGT48, which has 48 members and is from Niigata. It all makes sense now. Sort of.
