McDonalds Gets a New Mascot
Apparently McDonalds is introducing a talking happy meal box as it's new mascot for the first time in the United States.
Does any one else think every single food from McDonald's menu, somehow all makes farts that all smell the same? God knows I do, I still have mental scars from how all those playgrounds on McDonald's are stained with that smell and how that smell gets in your head no matter how hard you try.
Are they abandoning that kid and his various animal pals? I thought they were supposed to be the new McDonalds crew. There just seems something wrong about the eyes on top of the box rather than on the front. Just lower his awful mouth a little to make room for the eyes and it would be much better in my opinion. I'd also make the mouth a little smaller but that's just me.
Honestly, it doesn't strike me as that odd considering the Chuck E Cheeses redesign. Also, is the Burger King dead?
The laughing Happy Meal Box has been McDonald's mascot for three years or so, here in Portugal. I always thought it has been the official mascot in the states ever since.
Despite that, Ronald has always been the best mascot for all the wrong reasons.
This image somehow becomes relevant on this thread.12
My internet took ages to load that picture and it didn't took that many pixels to know that it was going to be Adam Sandler with that saddening T-shirt, but then it came the surprise.
Either way, It's really awkward that McDonald's revealed a new look to Ronald and all of the sudden they replace it with that little sack of turd. If I were american I'd still feel that having that clown redesigned is irrelevant to my sane life.
Also, more stuff that we'd associate to an angry Ronald McDonald.
I keep hearing Doug Walker behind that makeup.
Yeah, you guys are way behind, we've had that thing in Australia for a year now
Really? First I've heard of it. But then again, I stopped paying attention to McDonalds over the past few years (a.k.a. I looked for alternatives such as Nandos, Dominos, Asian food restaurants, and other obscure restaurant chains more).
Anyways, this new mascot honestly scares me even more than Ronald does. The fact that is it now a possessed Kids Meal box makes me wonder if kids are actually going to be overjoyed or terrified at the sight of their new beloved mascot. Possibly the latter.
Holy shit, the photo edits on the first page. That needs to become its own image edit thread now.
According to the article, the Happy Meal box isn't replacing Ronald McDonald, it's just being used as a quote-on-quote "Happy Meal ambassador", so he'll probably just be used in Happy Meal commercials and nothing more. And unlike in France, he won't be a minion expy, he'll just be talking about eating healthy and shit, which kinda misses the point of a fast food chain.
I sure hope this thread becomes 2014's "Chuck E. Cheese Makeover" thread, because this is far more exploitable than giving Ronald McDonald a blazer and cargo jeans.4
Well, at least that's good news to hear that they're keeping Ronald. Every loves Ronald
"Penis Clown"McDonald. As for "eating healthy" comments, I do agreed that it's missing some points of the fast food chain. I mean, I know eating apples is healthy and all, but wouldn't that be unnesscary to put that in the Happy Meal, even though some kids don't like eating fruits? This has been bugging me for years now, and I know some kids don't like some fruits and veggies, even when I was a little, I never liked eating apples and oranges besides bananas.
I don't like kids being force to eat these things, unless they wanted to give a try. I know McDonald's is trying to do a right thing, but since Disney's no longer affecting with McDonald's, it's getting really hard on the kids for getting into McDonald's more.
Now on the subject about the new mascot: I don't think this'll scared some kids as much, but since this character's new (and old to some countries), we'll see how this character goes when he appears in commercials. And I REALLY DO NOT WANT A CREEPY CLOWN VOICE ON THAT CHARACTER BECAUSE THAT WOULD'VE BE THE WORST THING THEY'D EVER DONE!!
