“I met Harrison, the owner of Black Mountain Cinema, at a wedding. Then we started gaming online together. Then I met his friends online too, lol," Upshaw told 6 News. "Found out they are songwriters and producers and with Harry’s talent with a camera, we started joking about making a video about Whataburger.

"I told Seth Brasher to send me a beat. I started writing a rap and then I sent it to Cooper Bascom (the guy singing in video) and he played with it and made the hook more catchy and added his voice. At that point we were like, 'Yeah we are doing this.'”

The video has garnered more than 34,000 views on Facebook and has been shared hundreds of times.
