That McDonald’s Summertime Commercial

In my opinion, summer is an overrated season. I’m not in school anymore, so there’s no summer break. It’s hot and sweaty, which also makes where I live (NYC) smell just awful. And then there’s also a weird societal pressure to have unrealistic amounts of fun and adventure. So yes…overrated. McDonald’s collects the downsides of the season into this new spot, which is basically just a montage of summer suckiness. Saying that eating a McDonald’s Fresh Beef Quarter Pounder is an “easier way to enjoy summer” is a bit of tenuous connection, but I do appreciate the commercial’s ironic imagery. The song is “Summertime, Summertime” by The Jamies.
