The original artist, Hamafugu, contributed additional drawings of the character, further amplifying its popularity. While the animated version gained traction, McDonald’s also released a live-action adaptation and a pixel art interpretation by Birdman surfaced online.

As for the fries’ flavors, the video showcases a salty plum and seaweed option, and a garlic, black pepper, and mayonnaise flavor. These new additions to the Shaka Shaka Fries lineup hit McDonald’s are only available for a limited time, however, so foodies who want to recreate the now-viral video may want to head to McDonald’s soon!
