Commercials that Don't Work, Redux

McDonalds Chicken sandwich. Man eating sandwich.

Disapproving co-worker issues ominous warning:
"You keep eating nothing but chicken and you're gonna turn into a chicken."

Images of the poor schmuck with feathers coming out his clothes, furtively trying to hide it.

Shot from under the bed, him sitting up in the morning. Chicken feet hitting the floor. Pan back to show him.

Cut to the McDonalds logo on the box.


I am NEVER going to eat any chicken product from McDonalds again as long as I live.

You make dangerous mutagenics sound so negative!

Chicken is not my alternate species of choice.

I don't drink the stuff, as such. Nor do I lactate.

Fortunately McDonalds hasn't done a mutate-into-a-cow commercial.

Well, it certainly explains the never ending supply of chickens. I was wondering what happened to Bob... >_>

I stopped eating at McDonalds (admittedly, except on RARE occassions, when I get a craving for a McGriddle ONLY) years and years ago, because every time I eat there, I get really ill. It doesn't matter what I get either. Even their beverages make me ill.

The last time I ate at McDonald's was about four years ago and I was disgusted by how sugary everything tasted (buns, fries, everything), as compared to real food. Then I was horribly thirsty afterwards.

I have had exceptional luck with their fruit parfait cups. Just the right balance of sweet and non-sweet for me, at least in the summer.

Not something that they sell on the left coast, as far as I've seen.

It's the karma from turning people into chickens.

Oh! That's a McDonalds commerical!


It's like everyone is trying to duplicate the grotesque appeal of the Plastic Burger King.


How come there aren't any new Biccardi and Cola commericals.

Baccardi and Coke? Well... having had it once, and gotten a pounding headache, I'd say that the commercial would have to show a group of people suffering through a completely horrible hangover on Tuesday (having missed Monday due to Lost Weekend syndrome) and having to deal with their horrible job, the fear and disgust of waking up with people and creatures they don't know and who are much less attractive without the Baccardi Goggles.

That would make it consistent with the rest of this kind of commercial.

Oh, you gotta watch for the Biccardi Guy and Cola commericals...they're just ice!

hm. Where would I see those? They don't seem to get on the channels I normally watch.

hmm..they show up on Sci-fi/Cartoon/and Comedy Central regularly. I know you can find them at the Biccardi website.

Found some non-corporate links for you:

Then there's that Wendy's chocolate frosty dessert... the only "soquid" you eat with a "fpoon".

which are really dumb, but damn if they don't make me think "Hmm. you know, I really like Wendy's frostys."

I want to slap them with a spork.

I was sad that they ripped off Burger King's surrealist advertising methodology.

I already avoided Burger King because of that scary plastic man.
