The 80s : What Were We McThinking?!

Thanks to Dany at Exitfare for melting a few of my braincells with this absolutely awful commercial from the 80s. Starring a skinnier, hairier (on the head, that is) version of Jason Alexander, McDonald's thought it would be marketable to server their hamburgers, uhh, separated...



I've lost my appetite, I think...

"The McDLT hasn’t been seen in America for about 15 years, but you remember it well: The hot stays hot. The cool stays cool. One half marketing genius, one half environmentally-unfriendly styrofoam waste." - Mike Davidson

Finally: Proof that the good old days weren't.

I remember the McDLT (who couldn't?), but had managed to completely blot that commercial from my memory. It shall haunt me for some time to come ...
