Commercial Break: Dead blokes don't get to finish their burgers
There’s no beating around the bush with this one from a shadowy American group called the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine. In it, a dead fella lies on the slab clutching a big Mac. We get the message – da boigers are gonna kill ya! (in American there for added effect)
But the kicker comes at the end, when the logo seems to suggest that McDonalds will specifically be the ones responsible for your demise. Harsh, especially when America has about 30 different fast food chains that will put you in the grave if you frequent them often enough.
Understandably, the big cheeses (heh heh) at McD’s aren’t happy about the ad, describing it as: “...outrageous, misleading and unfair to all consumers," adding that "McDonald's trusts our customers to put such outlandish propaganda in perspective, and to make food and lifestyle choices that are right for them.”
All of which has got us jonesing for one of their magnificent big breakfasts. Damn you the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine – you’re fucking killing us!
