It's good that gay people can finally eat at McD's again in France. Whew!
I agree. So!
Darn fat cat republican corporations
but seriously, what the heck?
Its like burger king making a commercial touting that they will still let you eat there even if you are albino, or something. Pointless?
Less of a 'pro-gay' ad, more of a 'let's use a minority to back up our ad's slogan'. They could have used an emo girl with pink hair and one shoe on. come as you are.
Wait, gay people eat McDonald's?
Grimace <3 Ronald
There are gay people in France?
There are McDonald's in France?
Companies will use any means to sell anything to anyone?
That was pro gay?
If anything it just showed a kid who still hasn't come out to his dad. Who knows maybe I just didn't get it.
Eating at McDonalds?
Poor gay people.
i dont get how this relates to micky dees
can someone enlighten me?
That was a very nice ad.
I didn't even see any food in that commercial.
A lot of ads do this. It's an emotional appeal, that's all.
Lee, I was hoping you could shed some light on this ad for me. I didn't really see how it was "pro gay" rather than having a kid that is seemingly still in the closet to his dad, which is sad.
Did I miss something?
Technically no one eats at McDonald's, because eating involves food. Going to McDonald's is more like a form of pica.
McDonald's food is unnatural... a sin... and an abomination in the eyes of God.
Cool commercial though.
If I was gay, I'd kiss you.
Furthermore, does this ad imply that they used to not welcome gay individuals? Also, McD doesn't even know the person is gay as it was a private phone call
I really, really don't get it
If I were to dissect the message, I'd say that McDonalds felt that they needed to appeal and gain credibility with the teen demographic. They show the kids just how much they understand them and their needs by relating to the most intimate detail of their lives. By making it about homosexuality, they show just how cool they are.
Now, if only their next commercial could include a Muslim woman in a burqa.
Not in France.
Just shows how low ad companies will go, when they choose to appeal to 'the most intimate part of peoples lives' to sell fast-food. This ad was pretty pointless IMO. Unless gay people previously felt they wernt welcome in The D's, I don't see how this stimulates people to want to go there, gays included. If I was in the closet and Maccy D's told me it was ok to be gay I wouldn't feel inclined to go there. I might high five Ronald, but that's about it.
I would have thought Hot Dogs would be more appropriate than Hamburgers
In the end it really all about saying "We get you," to the customer.
It's the same thing done in every ad.
"We get you."
Sure- it's quite simple.
"We get you, even if other people don't"
