With McDonald’s being a big offender of hateful commercials this one actually manages to stand out. I get they are targeting the moronic demographic that lacks self esteem posting every insignificant of their lives online but seriously – anyone being this happy going to McDonalds??? 

I can’t fathom even the most obnoxious social media dolt wanting to share an experience at McDonalds the way this commercial depicts it. Never mind the poses and gestures signaling two fingers to cap off how gratified they are with the McDonalds ‘McPick two deal’. 

I know these people exist, I see it myself on the limited social media I see but seriously McDonalds – nobody is this excited to visit your restaurant. 

Let’s not forget the entitled attitude the commercial picks up on which I do believe is now the norm today – “let me get a” both with the actor and awful song.  Absolutely today’s society on the head with it’s “Gimme, Gimme, Gimme” behavior.

I hope I’m not the only one deeply disturbed by this awful commercial!

Mcdonald's has an awful teeny bop pop music commercial singing about "Mcdonald's two for two,"where the that rivals the "Truth Left Swipe That," horrible teeny bop pop music. I cringe when it comes on!

In McDonalds defense, the "moronic demographic" is the largest slice of the population.
Present company excepted, of course.

I might go to McD's for lunch tomorrow.

Been wanting to get a couple of those $2 deals.

Two McDoubles and two fries for $4 is about as good a burger deal as you can expect to get nowadays.

And of course the indigestion is free.

Ohhh yea.  I just came on here to post this.  I'm not surprised that it's already here.  All those morons flashing their McPick2 gang symbol while taking their ever present selfies.  I hate this commercial.  By all means, please document every moment of your worthless lives.  Your pride in eating your McCrap says everything that we need to know about your life.

It is possible to criticize a product without insulting members who may have a different opinion.
Take it from someone who pisses some people off.

Oh wow.  I seriously did not mean it that way at all.  It was just geared toward the people in the commercial.  I didn't mean to insult anyone on this forum.

No worries & I can’t imagine you insulted anyone. I occasionally eat at McDonald’s (like 2-3 times a year) and I’m not offended. Anyway, I’m not surprised you came here to add this commercial but I was very surprised nobody else posted it before me as this train wreck was playing for two weeks.

Now my issue is still this – I get what some have said, many people use social media and obviously post pictures of events in their lives - I have no problem with that. Some people I know post way too much but for the life of me I can’t possibly imagine under any circumstance even a social media addict would EVER post pictures of themselves eating at McDonalds. 

Furthermore, the twits in this commercial taking these pictures like they are having the happiest time of their life at McDonalds & apparently couldn’t be more overjoyed about this McPick two nonsense (hand gestures included). Obviously commercials are farfetched but I actually think McDonalds is trying to portray this possibly could be realistic behavior and their restaurants are the 'cool' place to be.

Can anyone on this site even fathom anyone they know (or reasonably assume anyone in general) would EVER get this ecstatic over McDonald’s and / or post pictures of going there on social media like this commercial?

No, but then most of us aren't empty headed young nitwits like the fad obsessed little twerps in that commercial.

It's like I say in all of the posts regarding McDonalds - every one that I've ever been in, I never see anyone that looks like these people.  It's usually a bunch of unhappy, tired looking mothers with flocks of kids trailing behind them.  The only people that I ever see happy in McDonalds are the kids in the playland.  And they're usually more manic, than happy.

That's EXACTLY what I thought when I saw this stupid ad! It really looks like they are flashing gang signs! The people that these commercials are targeted towards are really easily emotionally manipulated, since (as someone said above) none of what goes on in the commercials actually happens in real life.

Any time I try to do that, all I see are those thin, blue horizontal lines.



And I never have any idea what they mean.
