Nick Lachey Writes Love Song for Wendy's Pretzel Bacon Burger

Listen to the 98 Degrees member croon, "Hashtag is this real life?" to the new menu item

Sure, you can always win over any of the girls at The Daily Meal with a quality burrata dish, but really, the way to our hearts is boy bands. So naturally, when Wendy's announced a partnership with Nick Lachey from 98 Degrees, we swooned. Let's just say, some of the staff may have attended that 98 Degrees/ Boyz II Men / New Kids on the Block concert a while back...

The burger chain called up Lachey to bring his good looks and smooth voice and sell their latest dish, the Pretzel Bacon Cheeseburger, in a campaign called #pretzellovesongs. The concept? Tweet a declaration of love to the burger, get someone to sing it.

Of course, Lachey couldn't just rely on the non-originality of the Twitterverse immediately (best we would come up with would be something lame like, "We will eat this burger if you'll love us, Nick!!!#$@%omg<3"). Instead, he pieced together an original song about the burger, serenading a crowd at a New York City Wendy's last night. Our inner 13-year-olds were squealing while it was happening.

Listen to the original song below, and sing along to the chorus with the lyrics, "Wendy's Pretzel Bacon Cheeseburger / It's a lifechanger / You guys / Y'all it's like everything glorious in one sandwich /  Hashtag is this real life?" Get those hands up to sway along.
