1 commercial I Love, 1 Commercial I Hate! – McDonald’s strikes again with Fuckery, Pharell pushes make-up

Hello,

we’ve met before. I thought I told you how much I HATE McDonald’s attempts to capitalize off of Hip-Hop and urban culture with these uber-corny ass ads. This time, they didn’t even put any thought into it. Who’s 3rd grade nephew or 45 year old ‘expert’ did they consult with for this lame spot?? Slap some headphones around someone’s neck and put a mic in somone’s hand and have them recite the most cliche and dusty phrase of all Hip-Hop lore and Voila! Does McDonald’s even have to market to niggas anyway? Not like they don’t know it exists and have the menu memorized at the same time they learn the alphabet.

Womp!

On the flip, this ad might come off a little corny as well, but the fact of who’s in it is what overrides that. It’s almost weird. But it’s also Dope. How did this happen? Who was in charge of the marketing here?? 2 of my favorite celebs, Pharell & the gorgeous Jessica Biel, one of my Caucasian Persuasion crushes. Kinda makes sense…They’re both into fashion heavy. But Revlon? And a man as the main focus of that? Interesting indeed.
