Kind of like how a recent Microsoft commercial features Mackenzie Book endorsing their product

Could we get a link to the YouTube? Way too many ads on mobile.

They called my grandfather (Ronald MacDonald) who rejected the offer as it was “stupid”. I was the most disappointed 12 year old on the planet

TIL Taco Bell once payed for free McDonalds advertisements. I will never get why Taco Bell and Burger King think it’s a good idea to bring up McDonalds in their ads. They constantly compare their shit to McDonalds shit. I cannot recall a single commercial where McDonalds even acknowledges that other fast food options exist, let alone directly compares themselves. And, they are far more successful – despite slinging the same trash. So, maybe there’s a lesson to be learned there? McDonalds isn’t “trolled” by this.
