My two radio teachers at Fullerton College made the same lame joke in 2005 regarding McDonald's ads, "I'm Loving It." they said, "I'm not loving it!"
Bleah. With both making that swipe, I could tell that's a jibe making the rounds. McDonald's is trying a new campaign, and it's as good as most others.
But NOT as GREAT as their classic one! I think it won an award, too!
Back in the early-mid 1970's there was a really excellent ad with such a great song --it had McDonald's employees dancing, while cleaning with mop, broom and rag, singing this great song about how clean McDonald's is-- the lyrics went something like:
"Scrub the counter and floor --then scrub it some more"
"There is nothing so clean -- as my burger machine!"
"At McDonald's it's CLEAN!"
"You deserve a break today --so get up and get away--to McDonald's!"
I think this may have also been composed by the same person and ad agency who did Dr Pepper's "I'm a Pepper, she's a Pepper, he's a Pepper, wouldn't you like to be a Pepper, too? Be a Pepper, drink Dr Pepper!" starring the hot-looking David Naughton, who got a LOT of attention, and went on to do "An American Werewolf in London."
Which reminds me of Saturday Night Live's Laraine Newman doing a character who phones hundreds of people trying to get people to commit to being a "Pepper," too.
I hope someone will post these, or direct me to a link or DVD that has them, as I want to see them again.
