McDonald’s Shows Bad Luck Brian Winning In Its Trick. Treat. Win! Game

If you’ve spent time online (which by definition of reading this, you have), you’ve probably seen the meme “Bad Luck Brian.” The real Bad Luck Brian is named Kyle Craven, and his famous photo was taken as a joke. Fortunately, Kyle has enjoyed his Internet fame. And now he’s in this McDonald’s ad for the Trick. Treat. Win! game, and he’s won a Big Mac. Turns out that Bad Luck Brian’s luck is turning around. In another spot, we meet Dylan McWilliams, an outdoor enthusiast who was attacked by a tiger shark in Hawaii. That was a few months after being attacked by a black bear in Colorado, and that wasn’t long after being bitten by a rattlesnake while rock climbing in Utah. The odds of all three happening to the same person is 893.35 quadrillion to one. You have to think Dylan’s odds are better since he’s an outdoorsy type, but still. And now he won a McFlurry!

These Canadian Guys Debate The Big Mac Bacon

McDonald’s Canada has just introduced the Big Mac Bacon. Bacon seems like such a no-brainer addition that it seems weird that it hasn’t been on the Big Mac before. Maybe one of the reason is that it’s such a classic that’s stayed relatively unchanged since its creation. So is the Big Mac Bacon even a Big Mac? These two guys have an amusing debate at a McDonald’s about whether it is or isn’t. McDonald’s is extending the campaign with some print ads and the hashtags #NotABigMac and #StillABigMac. I say that it’s still a Big Mac.

Super Bowl Retrospecticus: Michael Jordan And Larry Bird Play H-O-R-S-E For McDonald’s

The original Dream Team is likely the greatest team that will ever play in any sport. Two of the biggest stars of that team, Michael Jordan and Larry Bird, also teamed up for one of the most popular commercials in Super Bowl history. It involves Larry challenging Michael to a rather extreme game of H-O-R-S-E for his Big Mac lunch.

McDonald’s did a remake for Super Bowl XLIV, featuring LeBron James and Dwight Howard. But it just wasn’t as good. And I’m fairly certain both of them know who Larry Bird is.
