On Wednesday, the chicken chain announced it would be launching the Wingspan Box on Thursday to celebrate the NBA draft. For one day – June 20 – at a single location on Canal Street in New Orleans, Popeyes will sell a box of chicken that is almost 7 feet long.

“There’s been a lot of speculation and buzz around New Orleans and their likelihood to bring home a big name, with a wingspan of 6 feet and 10 inches, as their No. 1 draft pick,” Popeyes said in a statement.
