It is horrible. And those eyes!
For so long, Burger King held the monopoly on Unnecessarily Creepy Fast Food Mascots with its ominous, looming King. Now McDonald’s has stepped up to take its place.
I don’t know why we expected better from a company that has had a clown as its mascot for so long — a company that, given the chance to update this mascot, decided that what he needed was new pants and a different jacket, not to stop being a terrifying clown. Is it possible McDonald’s doesn’t see how creepy these things look?
Poor Pharrell must be turning over in his hat. If anything can stem the tide of “Happy,” it is this creature.
I thought nothing could drive me into the arms of kale. I was wrong.
