Four quick thoughts about Mickey D’s newest ad.
1. LeBron saying “special sauce” to earn admission into this secret society reminded me of Ace Ventura and “New England Clam Chowder.”
2. Not to be “that guy,” but doesn’t it seem odd that LeBron is the new member of the McDonald’s Illuminati while Johnny Football and Alex Morgan are considered his prophytes? ‘Bron first signed his endorsement deal with the fast food giant in 2010 – when Manziel was 17 and a year before Morgan was drafted first overall by the WPS’ Western New York Flash.
3. I went to McDonald’s last Friday and ordered a bottled water and a large fry. It was the first time I’ve been to Ronald McDonald’s empire in probably a year. The burgers never strike me as “burgers,” but their fries rarely receive much love when it comes time to shooting commercials. The fries need more love.
4. Needless to say, the LRMR/Manziel partnership has already hit the ground running.
