Very Cool And Creative McDonald’s Ads

McDonald's Corporation is the world's largest chain of hamburger fast food restaurants, serving around 68 million customers daily in 119 countries. McDonald's has for decades maintained an extensive advertising campaign. In addition to the usual media such as television, radio, and newspaper, the company makes significant use of billboards and signage, sponsors sporting events ranging from Little League to the Olympic Games, and makes coolers of orange drink with its logo available for local events of all kinds. Nonetheless, television has always played a central role in the company's advertising strategy. Now, let's take a look at some of the clever and creative ads by McDonald...

This was a perfect way to promote McDonald’s seasonal green Shamrock Shake.
