So the glutenous fast food behemoth finally cooked up a trans fat-less fry formula. In Brazil, at least judging by this ad, the new formula includes the cut-off, cooked fingers of Mickey D's fry guys/gals. Is this more or less disgusting than Subway's human entrails sub? The French Spiderman 3 cheeseburger? Settle down. I am of course being too literal with this visual targeting young "rocker" types. But food ads should be—above all other considerations, including cool art direction—appetizing. And, while I'm not young, I have played drums in a couple mediocre punk rock bands. And the last thing I now want to eat for lunch today is McDonald's. previous McDonald's posts: Eat a box o' lard, then play some football; a big fat lie of a nutrition ad; and Ronald is Dead. update: as a commenter on Gawker says: you'd think that the Wendy's chili finger incident would have come into play here.
