McDonalds trying to recreate Jordan/Bird magic with Kaepernick/Flacco?

by Jon Henseler

Saw this commercial the other day and I have to say, I'm borderline offended. And that doesn't happen much. As a suburban, white, middle class blogger who rarely goes outside, not much can get to me. My worst day is a Make A Wish for 80% of the world. But McDonalds trying to use Joe Flacco and Colin Kaepernick to recreate the magic of Jordan and Bird from the 90's is right up there. I mean Christ almighty McDonalds, we've got enough going on right now with a government shut down and Miley Cyrus, we can't be worried about the #1 purveyor of obesity replacing two icons with Colin 'You mean the read option was a fad' Kaepernick and Joe 'Sam The Eagle' Flacco. Clean it up.

PS: I never understand why places like McDonalds try things like 'wings.' Same deal when Subway tried to make pizzas a few years ago. Just do what you do and do it well. People go to McDonalds for fries, Big Macs and Royale's with cheese. If McDonalds is your 'wing spot' you're a wildcard and not to be trusted.

Double PS: Best commercial out there right now is this Guiness commercial with the guys playing wheelchair basketball with their buddy. Makes my cold heart grow 3 sizes every time it's on.
