McDonald’s has been an official sponsor of the Olympic Games since 1976, so it’s not surprising to see the chain release menu items with an Olympic tie-in. This summer, the Games will be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, from August 5 to August 21.

That being said, McDonald’s Indonesia just introduced the limited time Brazilian BBQ McSpicy. While not explicitly associating the new sandwich with the Olympic Rings, the connection is clearly being implied.
The new Brazilian BBQ McSpicy features a crispy, spicy deep-fried chicken patty, sliced tomato and cucumber, onions, lettuce, mayo and a splash of spicy BBQ sauce, on a sesame seed bun.
The Brazilian BBQ McSpicy is priced at $2.25 USD, on its own, or $3.30 USD, as part of a meal with fries and a soda.
McDonald’s Indonesia also released 3 promotional TV commercials for the new sandwich – you can view those videos below.
