Commercial Vampire: Macdonalds

Another Halloween advert, another set of monsters including a vampire. This time the vampire is centre stage and… a McNugget…

To be honest, Ronald is more scary than any monster they could dream up…

lol

I think it was a McNugget, though in fairness it looked like an indistinct lump, because Im fairly sure a potato has yet to see the insides of a McDs...

A vampiric indistinct lump of chicken-like material then...or like you said, a mcnuggett.

Ronald is indeed the usher of the new Anti-christ, Maccas needs to come up with a new mascot that looks less pedo in my opinion.

I mean what happened to the Hamburgler and that Purple dude? They were soooo much cooler!

The thing that gets me is that we all know clowns are inherently scary, rather than funny.

Take It (the mini series). Second half, big rubber spider - rubbish. First half, Tim Curry as a clown - creepy as Hell...

Now, with that as a benchmark, why, oh why, oh why would you have a clown as your coporate mascot - or indeed as an advertising anchor for the kids market?

Yes I agree

You think with evil clowns like John Wayne Gacy and Pennywise from IT, you think Maccas would have scrapped Ronnie and come up with a new mascot, but maybe that's their little in joke or something...

I loved the vampire McNuggets as a kid. No joke. Almost bought some promo vamp McNuggets on eBay once, but they sold for roughly 8 bajillion dollars (Canadian).

I never knew about vampire McNuggets until I found this ad on YouTube, much less knew that there were promo toys of them... that's rather interesting, thanks for letting us know.
