McDonald’s Super Bowl 49 Commercial Is Introducing a ‘Pay With Lovin’ Campaign That Starts February 2nd
A few thoughts:
- Risky move by that first cashier telling a complete stranger to call his mother and tell him he loves her. Uh, what if his mother’s dead? Or what if he hates his mother? If I was that stranger I’d flip out and start crying so all the workers would feel terrible and awkward.
- How are you going to end a ‘Pay With Lovin’ campaign on Valentines Day? V-Day is the one day out of the year that signifies love. I’m pretty sure Valentine means love in Latin or some language. Poor timing on McDonald’s part.
- What McDonald’s was this filmed at? I was just at the McDonald’s in NYC near the mega bus stop and the workers were not as friendly. And when I say not as friendly, they couldn’t have been more disinterested if they tried. I want to go to the McDonald’s in this commercial where everyone is happy and hugging each other.
All in all, a pretty cool move by McDonald’s. Hopefully it works out, because those $4.5 million thirty second Super Bowl commercials are a tad expensive.
