McDonald’s just invented a new way to eat.
According to NBC News, the fast food chain company unveiled the “Frork” on Monday.
The device, seen in the video below, is a fork with french fries serving as the utensil's prongs, NBC News reported.
The device has a purpose (and no, it’s not just so you can dip your fries). McDonald’s plans to roll out a new set of burgers and chicken sandwiches with various flavors, including Pico Guacamole, Sweet BBQ Bacon and Maple Bacon Dijan. The Frork will help people pick up their toppings.
McDonald’s filmed an advertisement of the new device with the help of pitchman Anthony Sullivan, who’s appeared in numerous commercials over the years.
"Will the Frork change your life? Probably not," Sullivan said in the video. "Will the Frork improve your Signature Crafted Recipes eating experience? I mean, sure … maybe."
"We started with All Day Breakfast, updated our Chicken McNuggets, offered new Mac sandwich sizes for every occasion, and now we're introducing Signature Crafted Recipes because they are inspired by our customers," Michael Haracz, McDonald's chef, said in a statement, according to NBC. "And while the Frork is supremely superfluous, it shows that McDonald's is willing to do whatever it takes to help them enjoy every last bite."

Mickey D’s also unveiled its new uniforms last week, which drew comparisons to Star Wars characters.
