TikTok’s hottest new vacation
spot is … McDonald’s.
Well, not just any McDonald’s. One location,
in Sedona, Ariz., is going viral on the social
media app — for a very specific reason.
At this restaurant, the chain’s famous
golden arches are actually blue.
The Sedona McDonald’s has gone viral
several times over the past few years,
although TikTokers seem to have just
recently taken notice.
One video, uploaded by a user
named Megan Homme, has drawn
more than 800,000 views.
The video seems to be following a trend,
as four of the app’s top six videos using the
hashtag “Sedona” feature the McDonald’s.
So, why are the arches blue? According to
Business Insider, Sedona’s city government has
restrictions on buildings that may clash with the
red-orange hue of its iconic rock formations.
The bright yellow McDonald’s arches, it seemed,
were too rock-colored to make the cut.
It’s unclear if the fast food chain was
forced to change its colors, or if the blue
arches were simply a compromise
