Clearly, Wendy’s is the best place to promote your mixtape


Are you an aspiring rapper?  Want to get your music heard?  Better get a job at Wendy’s.

Mike Barz, an Illinois rapper whose music you can listen to here, decided his position at Wendy’s allowed him to use the reader board however he wanted:

Barz said he was fired in his post, but later filled in Mashable with what really happened:

I work at Wendy’s and that sign I put up was 100% real. However I wasn’t terminated for my actions. To answer your question, sometimes in life your dreams will drive you to the extremes beyond this world. My mixtape downloads were not doing the numbers as expected, so in order to reach my goal I knew I had to do something absurd and of the unthinkable. After I noticed it started going viral getting 100 likes within the first 10 minutes, I knew from that point on my plan had worked.

So yeah, Barz kept his job slingin’ Baconators and now his music career is taking off.

Surely, you will see him at Coachella in 2017.
