Here’s Nick Lachey Singing a Love Song to Wendy’s New Pretzel Bacon Cheeseburger, For Reasons


As far as ‘90s boy band heartthrobs are concerned, Nick Lachey wasn’t high up on the adolescent food chain. I vaguely remember him being married to Jessica Simpson, but I also couldn’t name any 98 Degrees songs off the top of my head. So is it any wonder Wendy’s pinged Lachey – over, say, Justin Timberlake – to croon over its newest summertime menu offering, the Pretzel Bacon Cheeseburger? Sadly, not really. But does that mean you’ll be any less jealous of a burger once you’re finished reading this post? Sadly, not really.
Wendy’s newest marketing campaign asked customers to tweet about the new burger using the tag “#PretzelLoveSongs”. Their brilliant lyrics (listed below) were then compiled into an ooey-gooey love ballad sung by the 98 Degrees frontman himself.
A short clip of Lachey’s soundcheck from a performance on Monday has made its way around the interwebs, reminding more than enough people why we ever cared about 98 Degrees in the first place.
