I Don't actually make threads much but this is one of the ones that frustrates me so much when it comes on. A bunch of hipsters bouncing around on a red couch sharing their dollar menu sh*t-patties that barely pass as "Consumable by Humans". all to one of the more annoying, smug jingles I think I've dealt with on TV lately.

irritates me to no end, aside from the song and theme of the commercial making absolutely no sense.

ErmmI'm thinkin' McD's should get sued for the visual abuse of other people's spermmistakes gone wrong, but also because they *must* have robbed K-tel records to get that horrendous piece of muzak.

"Random" Red Couch? Why "random"? Is randomness something else hipsters love aside from liking things before they become popular?

I also want to knock the douche-baggy hat off the Asian/African/white/whatever "mystery meat" guy - don't know why it irritates me, but it does.

I haven't posted here in a long time, but I just saw this commercial today and thought "WTF??"

As someone already mentioned, why is the  red couch "random"? And what does that have to do with McDonald's cheeseburgers? 

But mostly I just hate the song and the way the people are singing it. I am selling my McDonald's stock tomorrow morning.

because random is "quirky", and hipsters LOVE "quirky" sh*t.

I feel like McDonalds is way too mainstream for them. Maybe they will eat there ironically? I don't know. probably just the wrong demographic they are aiming at.

the very last line in the song is what makes me cringe the most. the tone in her voice is so f**king smug and arrogant.

I came in the thread to say that.  It is an odd target demographic.  And a freaking terribly annoying commercial.

What would a hipster burger look like?

Sprouted-grain, gluten-free bread? All-organic vegetables, kale instead of lettuce. Grass-fed-only beef? A cheese from Italy or France that had a super-pretentious name?

I'm tired of these advertisers gearing towards hipsters. I've seen about 2 other commercials, especially this one that's marketing towards them. Next thing you know, they'll be advertising movies, or tv shows towards hipsters, like Scott Pilgrim VS The World(from what I've read, that's why the movie wasn't that successful, because it was marketed towards hipsters, even though the movie made fun of hipsters).

And it comes wrapped up in an extra tight wrap - i.e. a burger's skinny jeans.

I predict that porn movies will be made in parody of this ad (not necessarily good ones.  LOL)

I didn't realize there was this thread on this loser commercial. It has all the elements of a hate worthy commercial:
* It's from McDonalds
* They are still using that way too tired Ghettocentric "I'm Lovin It" campaign.
* Features a wimpy Hipster complete with goofy looking Hipster Hat.
* The music sucks
* The sucky music has another breathy horrible voiced chick crooning away.
* People acting stupid running around a skanky red couch for McDonald's latest artery clogging epicurean delight. I hate the commercial so much I don't even know which artery clogging Mc foody item they are badvertising!


Sorry folks, even that vintage Tube TV can't cover up the stale tuna smell from Ms. Hipster.

Sing along! (new lyrics same tune)

We've got a sack of vile spew...
Don't ask me why,
people don't throw up or just curl up and die

We've got a bag of foul puke
open it up...
try to take a bite without throwing it up.

We've got a sack of vile spew,
it's really ghastly crap
in this McDonald's bag
are things to make you gag

Our burgers, our chicken,
and other vile food
is nothing any human should ever consume

The red seating is the color of what the cancer looks like inside that they get from the food. I kid, I kid. I used to work there in highschool. I don't eat there often but I do miss the bathroom handsoap.

Your second question answers your first. It's random cause it has nothing to do with McDonalds or their food, yet the advertisement is more focused on it than anything else.

You understand that real hipsters would never eat here (even ironically).

This annoying commercial attempts to convince the wanna-be hipster that eating at McDonalds will make them more hip. It won't... It will only make them more pathetic and fat.
