Well that’s one way to get attention, UK startup Shutl has offered Jamaican sprinting sensation Usain Bolt a one percent stake in the company, and all the chicken nuggets he can eat.

The VC-backed company, which specialises in delivering goods ordered online, sent a letter to Bolt offering him equity in the company and “all the McNuggets” he needs (the sprinter famously ate chicken McNuggets just before his record-breaking 100 metre final in Beijing).

According to The Next Web, all he has to do in return is set aside some of his time to help the company break a world record for the fastest delivery. The company claims it already holds the record, with a time 14 minutes and 58 seconds. It’s unclear however what the criteria for the time were.
