This is Andrew checking in on the eating holiday of the year. No, I won’t be hitting up any of the local fast food eateries today, but I wanted to give you, the readers some updates about what McDonald’s has been up to recently. For those of you have not noticed, the McNugget is trying to become a big deal again. Coupled with some truly outlandish commercials, the clown has established a Nuggnut ad campaign, trying to get America to open up and express their heartfelt gratitude for fried clusters of chicken that are either ball or boot shaped. One commercial includes a wedding reception where the wedding cake is made entirely out of nuggs and then the loving couple interlocks arms, dips, and then commences their marriage with a bite of desire. But then there’s this commercial. There just aren’t any words to describe the slimy and cheeseball fashion of this commercial. But I’m not gonna lie, I love it. My world stops for thirty seconds whenever I hear this lusty tale of R&B gold.
“I know your secret, you’ve been dippin on me” and “Girl you gotta ten piece, please don’t be stingy” are quite possibly the quotes of year. Balls on McDonalds.
In other news, the economic recession may have finally hit McD’s with their double cheeseburgers. Originally put on their menu as an almost loss leader (something that actually loses the company money, but will bring customers in to the store in the hopes that they would buy more profitable items such as beverages and fries), the double cheeseburger has been extremely popular. The double cheeseburgers do not actually lose McDonald’s money but they are certainly not their most profitable item. McDonald’s had originally hoped that people would buy fries with their double cheeseburgers, but people ended up buying two burgers instead of fries Word on the street is that McDonald’s franchise owners have never been a fan of the dollar menu and it has caused profits to drain. So in an attempt to rekindle the tender relationship, McDonalds has decided to introduce the McDouble Burger onto the dollar menu. This is the same as the double cheeseburger, with two buns, two patties, but only has one slice of cheese intermingled between the patties. The drop from one slices to two, saves McDonald’s around six cents per burger. The original double cheeseburger, with its two slices of cheese will still be available for $1.19. What a crazy world indeed. Its hard to believe that people will meander through their wallets to shell out the extra 20 cents for an extra slice of cheese.
I want to apologize to the readers for the lack of posts recently, but being college students first and foremost, we’ve been extremely busy as of late. With holiday breaks upcoming, I promise to you that G&GG will be posting smoothly once again. Enjoy the turkey and have a splendid morrow.
