I’ve been watching the same commercials all night, and one that really caught my attention was one advertising 24-hour McDonald’s restaurants in Hong Kong. The commercial shows a bunch of happy young people at McDonald’s late at night, making silly poses for their camera. But what are they doing? One of them is putting onion rings on his face, around his eyes. Another is sticking french fries under his glasses, simulating tears. The third is rubbing french fries all over her upper lip. My wife said that since it’s a 24-hour McDonald’s, the people in the commercial must be drunk. Yes, they must be drunk, that’s why they’re rubbing greasy food all over themselves.
The sad part is, I’m thinking about ordering McDonald’s some time.
