McD’s Not Lovin’ This Media Placement

Steve Hall at Adrants brings us this awesome out-of-home juxtaposition.

McD’s Jumps Through Hoops (Morgan Spurlock, It’s All Your Fault)

Let’s assume for the sake of argument that there is such a thing as a fruit buzz. After all, I do feel pretty good after ingesting fresh fruit.

Japan Toys With American Advertising Icon

Steve Hall reports that McDonald’s Japan has ditched the iconic Ronald McDonald in favor of a couple of “McHotties,” one male and one female. Maybe an outing to McD’s is something special in Japan.
