Scooter Atreides The idea of an "It" campaign with Ronald as Pennywise made me laugh more than anything has in years. Many, many thanks, Proto.

P.S. I honestly think the Batman tie-in commercial could really have worked, minus the "burger enema" line. But then, I'm not quite right in the head.

StarscreamTheWaffle Hmm... Maybe I should write that people on, "Humanity Is Stupid" after all...

executioneer i mean seriously, unless you're a character, you gotta be the most easily gulled person i've ever seen on the internet (AND THAT IS SAYING A FUCK OF A LOT)

executioneer NEWSFLASH: all of these ads are complete fabrications, light-bright

and the correct phrase is "appealing to the lowest common denominator", not "playing towards the most juvenile of customers"

VioletYoshi Executioneer, do you know anyone who has English as a second language, that is familiar with words like "juvenile"?

That's the best response you can come up with towards what I said? Aren't you just proving my point? That you're the type of person McDonald's targeted their anal lube ad towards, obnoxious teenagers or people behaving like obnoxious teenagers?

VioletYoshi Can someone help me find the We All Float Down Here ad on the web. I've been searching, and I wanna see it.

wobzire He had to be kidding right? It seems like he was serious, but there is no way. Right?

executioneer violet yoshi do you get jokes

VioletYoshi I can't believe they thought that ad based off of IT was a good idea. Especially after the incident with Gacy where they tried to convince people clowns aren't bad, but failed at that. I mean seriously, did they really think the idea of Ronald kidnapping kids into a sewer was cool?

I seriously would not have believed that Make Every Time a Good Time ad was for real. It looks like a parody, I mean what the hell was someone thinking? Anal lube with food uh, has someone in their advertising company spending too much time on the chan image boards?

It doesn't surprise me that the Japanese ad actually drew in business. In Japan, as with other countries outside of the US, they don't hide away from the darker issues in life. Also Japan has quite a reputation for making some of the most contraversial and disturbing horror films in the world. So actually an ad with a female Ronald caniballizing it's competition, might seem like light fare to them. Oh and also, the Japanese Ronald looks really cute, but then I'm one of those people who's a bit of a Japanophile.

grodenbarg That's our Ronald McTerror! ROTFL! Not a very good AD campaign history there :P

gr8bishie If you actually read It, Pennywise was described as a cross between Ronald McDonald and... some other clown. So, yeah, that kinda made sense. One thing you forgot to preface the article with, Protoclown: Clowns are generals in Satan's army. Mimes are naught but privates!

0dd1 Ronald McDonald is a pedophile...
Jan 22nd, 2008 01:39 PM
Invisible I can't stand the newer commercials. Like the one, where at the end, Ronald lands on the picnic table and jets some poor kid into a tree. Ronald looks up and LAUGHS at him. Stupid.

I don't know what you're talking about. That photo came from my 'private collection'.

Output Years ago McDonald's did an ad campaign with a guy that had a HUGE moon head playing a piano and singing "Mac Tonight" to the tune of "Mac the Knife". They got sued by Bobby Darin's estate and had to pull all the broadcast and print ads...sometimes the real story is funnier than fiction.

captain516 I always knew Pennywise and Ronald were one and the same.

Autrach Sejanoz I bet more people would eat at McDonald's if they actually did give away Anal Lube with their meals. Brings new meaning to the phrase 'Happy Meal'.

BurntToShreds The last one sounds like something I would see in Fist of the North Star. Great article.
