With A Nod To Shepard Fairey

People love to bust on McDonald’s. There’s a long history of activism against the global burger dispenser. Ronald McHummer, the latest comer adds a subversive twist to their protest—a make your own McD’s sign game.
Here’s why they’re bothering:

McDonald’s often emphasizes its “long-standing global commitment to environmental protection and leadership.” So why did they give away 42 million toy Hummers in Happy Meals? The fast-food chain that helped make our kids the fattest on Earth cut a deal with General Motors to sell future car buyers on the fun of driving a supersized, smog-spewing, gas-guzzling SUV originally built for the military. Use the Ronald McHummer Sign-O-Matic™ to say what you think of this misguided marketing marriage.

Yep, a promotion gone wrong. I hate when that happens.
