McDonalds pulls "dead dad" ad





Quote:
Fast food marketers have a pretty firm grasp on the attention span of children and, like it or not, have been pretty successful at targeting kids and getting them to eat burgers, fries, and chicken nuggets.

But for all of that sly and sneaky marketing, McDonald's is now dealing with the fallout from a very tone-deaf ad that was meant to be sentimental, but fell flat, if not downright offensive. What, thinking about the death of your parents doesn't make you crave burgers?

McDonald's eventually pulled the commercial, telling the BBC that they had no intention of being "offensive" and that they were just trying to "highlight the role McDonald's has played in our customers' everyday lives—both in good and difficult times."

It's not like the commercial ends with a young boy crying over his father's grave as tears fall into his milkshake, but McDonald's attempt to create emotionally driven content about a dead father ultimately leaves us feeling as confused as the kid in the ad.

Didn't see anything wrong with the ad, but I immediately thought of Bruce Willis and Christopher Walken in that scene from Pulp Fiction when he's putting on his dad's old watch.

I haven't seen the commercial. Did someone have a Big Mac stuck up their ass?

It sounds to me like the mom lied about who the father was.

Classic case of a company trying too hard. Just stick with putting toys in happy meals, McDonald's....
