Since Michael brought up the subject of Hardees commercials, my favorite one has a pregnant woman pigging out on a thickburger while a voiceover informs her that she’ll be spending her next 18 years at McDonalds. I can’t find it online but if you have small children I think you’ll understand the humor. I have made it very clear that the day one of my children gets a driver’s license is the last time I am ever going to McDonalds. They can take themselves or beg a sibling to drive them. With all the fast food restaurants out there, why do we always end up driving through McDonalds between soccer games, scouts, school activities, doctor appointments and all the other things that keep us on the move?

  1. It starts innocently enough. McDonalds has a play room, what better way to enjoy a meal than throwing the kids in the playroom and having adult time at the table. Doesn’t matter the food is crap. It’s a subtle thing but soon you associate McDonald’s with good times and the kids of course associate MCD’s with playing and good times. So you all think McD’s is great. Sounds like your brainwashing is wearing off. You need to be recalibrated – go to McDonalds immediately they are expecting you. I’m lovin’ it.

  2. It’s because there is a McDonald’s every quarter of a mile.

    Also, have you seen the movie Super Size Me? It talks about how the marketing department of McD’s does a great job of getting who they are into the kid’s head early and often. It’s kind of scary when you step back and think about it.
