I guess I'll post this here, until our fearless leader sets up the new Super Bowl thread.

I can see it now, random people being chosen to get free food, if you want to call it that.
Here is the headline: Brawls breakout at McDonald's across the country because employees are choosing who gets free food.
I'm hatin it.

So that means I can hire a hooker, turn her over on a table in front of everyone, and do the nasty and get a meal?

Seriously, though, I can see them being really stingy with this - the average will probably only be 2-3 "love" payments per day, and some franchises probably won't (or will only if forced) be participating.

Thank you, Ad. Even if this is real, it has been mentioned that it will be a very bad idea to give some customers free food, and make other customers pay. For example, let's say Sally orders a Quarter Pounder meal(roughly $7.00) and Kate orders a two double cheeseburger meal (roughly $5.00) the Cashier tells Sally to sing, The Star Spangled Banner," song, and she does. Sally gets the Quarter Pounder for free. The cashier tells Kate that she owes $5.00 for the cheeseburger meal. Kate rips the Cashier a new one for letting Sally get the Quarter Pounder meal for free just for singing, and charging Kate the full price, even though Sally's food cost more. " "So, you gave her free food and I have to pay for my food? It doesn't work that way. I need my food for free too."

You can see how resentful the customer would be if a real life Cashier did this.

I bet you anything they limit it in most cases to dollar-menu cheapskate purchases to avoid losing too much in sales.

What is it with McDs lately?  First the signs commercial, then this pile.  If I went in to get some food and they told me to pay by calling my mother and telling her that I love her, my response would be something to the effect of, "Don't tell me what to do.  Just fk off, and give me a price in dollars and cents so that I can leave and NEVER come back to this sh*thole!"

I'd have to tell whoever answered my parents' phone that I loved them.  My parents are dead and the number's probably been reassigned.  I just hope my new mother speaks English.

This actually makes me want to go to McDs even less.  Now I'm afraid that they'll tell me to make a phone call or do some stupid dance to get the food that I'd normally pay for with CASH.

But I agree with what you say, and I can't actually see them doing this.

McD's minimum wage worker: "This will cost you one phone call to your mom, to tell her that you love her."
Customer: "Well, my mom's dead, but thanks for bringing up a painful memory, you a**hat twirp!"

Seriously.  Just serve the lukewarm slop that you're known for, and take my money, like a normal "restaurant".

I haven't been following Micky-Dees closely, but I heard on the radio that the CEO is leaving (for performance issues, etc..).

The new guy is their Chief Brand Officer.
Wonderful - the guy (mostly?, partly?) responsible for their current crappy brand image is going to take the top reigns? WTF?

So, again, my advise is: ditch the clown (publicly, and permanently).
Then, stop catering to the lowest common denominator.
It's OK to have a few inexpensive items, but not the whole damn menu. It only puts you into a death spiral (quality, price, lack of profits).

Maybe what M-D's should do is offer a "decent" burger (like Five Guys?), even though it will be more expensive. I mean, their cokes and fries are OK - the burgers suck.

At least that way, a trip to M-D's isn't nixed because one individual in a group can't find anything on the menu worth eating.

Oh, and ditch this "lovin'" crap IMMEDIATELY.
People don't come to Mickey-Dees for a rub-and-tug.
This has to be the most idiotic slogan idea since "I'm lovin' it".
Love doesn't sell burgers. Quality, price, and getting the order correct at the drive thru does (and preferably in under a few minutes).

^Maybe I'll go to McD's for this one. I'll go at a busy lunchtime. I'll find a cute young cashier.

I'd simply love to have her ask me to call my wife, just so I could call directory assistance on the speakerphone and ask for the number for some cemetary...and tell the cashier the wife has taken up dirty habits and she just can't get off her back enough to push the lid open, anymore, but, well...HEY! Yo! doncha know - this cahier? she's kinda cute and I'm kinda horny...and, well...would she like to be my wife for the afternoon? I bet I could get a 'Happy Meal' for a move like that.

Forget the simple annoying stomach issues I'll have after eating a Quarter Pounder, with my luck I'll probably hug a McDonalds employee with early stage Measles.

What in the f--k is this?! McDonald's is trying to discriminate customers this way! I will probably never go back to McDonald's after this. 
They are trying everything they can to get customers and get crappy food into their stomach.

Exactly.  What if you were raised by your father?  Or your mother is dead?  Or you HATE your mother?  McDonald's needs to stop whatever it is they are trying to do here.

I don't want to go there again, because I'm afraid they'll ask me to do something stupid and embarrassing.  Just give me my sludge, let me pay, and let me leave.  Idiots.
