A man from Waco and his friends are turning viral thanks to his musical tirade against Whataburger selling to a company based in Chicago.
Since the publication of the video on Facebook on Friday, Matt Upshaw, Cooper Bascom and the song by Seth Rasher have been seen more than 45,000 times. Here is a link to the original publication.
FOX44 News spoke with Upshaw Sunday and told us that it happened very quickly. "I told Seth Rasher to send me a heartbeat, He sent me a heartbeat and it was fire," Seth said during a video call, "so I just decided to write about it and see what I was going to enter and then sent to Couper Bascom. He's the guy who sings in the video, we were really impressed with how it turned out. "
BDT Capital Partners will advise on the expansion strategy and provide long-term growth capital to Whataburger, the network said. The Whataburger headquarters will remain in San Antonio, according to the company.
"To continue to satisfy our customers, we have been exploring different options to expand the brand and introduce it to new audiences," Whataburger president and CEO Preston Atkinson said in a statement.
The company has heard complaints about the merger and responded on Twitter.
