You know you’ve made it when your get to put your name to a $13 burger. From tomorrow, Umami Burger will be shilling an Andy Samberg inspired patty as part of the chain’s Artist Series. The Lonely Island member (and Complex cover star) is the latest creative to be immortalized in meat, joining the venerable ranks of musicians like The Black Keys and Mayer Hawthorne, as well as chefs José Andrés and Michael Voltaggio.

The Samberger has sport peppers, roasted tomatoes, dill pickles, kombu relish, roasted garlic aioli, and yellow mustard on top of an all-beef patty.
