Not Loving It: McDonalds Olympic Ad

That McDonalds ad where the little girl approaches Canadian Olympic figure skater Patrick Chan for an autograph? Really?
You’ve seen the spot. This little curly-topped cutie asks Chan to make the beyond ironic McDonalds Olympic sport water bottle (“do you want fries with that?”) out to “Mommy.” Bad enough that the spot is so forced and cloying, and that no kid would recognize this dude, but WHAT THE HELL IS PATRICK CHAN DOING EATING AT MCDONALDS?!! No wonder we’re the only host nation never to win a gold medal at our own Summer Olympic Games! Go eat at Subway for Chrissakes!!

  1. Well, with the support our Olympic athletes got up until the past few years, McDonalds was all he could afford.
