McDonald’s Mondays: Why So McSerious?


Not the first time we’ve mentioned it here at SmartCanucks, but tomorrow brings the long-awaited DVD launch of The Dark Knight. If you haven’t seen it, you really need to. I never thought the word “masterpiece” could be applied to a comic book movie, but if any had ever earned the title it’d be this …Read More


McDonald’s Mondays: LEGO Ronald

Other / Canada 5 comments

When I was writing about the great deal on LEGO at Zellers a few days ago, I started thinking about all of the cool things I’ve seen built out of LEGO in my life.  But them it dawned on me — I’d never seen a LEGO Ronald before!  Thanks to the magic of the internet, …Read More


McDonald’s Mondays: Monopoly is BACK!


Three things always signal the return of fall for me.  The leaves start changing color, TV gets good, and I get that damned Park Place game piece a hundred times over.  That’s right, it’s McDonald’s Monopoly time!  And every time I think of McDonald’s Monopoly, I think of the scandal that almost brought the whole …Read More


McDonald’s Mondays: Advertising in your subconcious


[youtube]2xPvYgTvr8I[/youtube] Ever think all of that talk about subliminal advertising was paranoid bunk?  Think again. An eagle-eyed viewer of Iron Chef America caught a McDonald’s image snuck into 1/30th of a second of the broadcast.  Inside Edition picked up on this and followed up  with both the network and McDonald’s.  The network says it was …Read More


McDonald’s Mondays: Birth of a Hamburglar


It’s a little blue (hence the big black bar of censorship), but the guys got a point.  Who thought a masked criminal would be an apporpriate character to promote hamburgers?  It’s a weird combination to be sure. I’ll bet the Hamburglar is really just a street thug.  The real brains behind the operations?  Wimpy. [via …Read More

McDonald’s Mondays: McWedding!

Other / Canada 6 comments

For years I’ve always joked that I wanted to hold my wedding reception at McDonald’s.  Buffet-style McNuggets and big red container full of orange drink for all!  Turns out this couple on Scottsdale Arizona must have been reading my mind.  Here’s a description from the flickr page; McDonald’s in Scottsdale hosts vintage car shows every …Read More


McDonald’s Mondays: First Tomato, Now Turkey?


It’s been a rough summer for McDonald’s and food recalls.  First up we had the continent-wide tomato scare that left our sandwiches without that delicious red crunch, and now the Turkey BLT is off the menu until further notice. In case you’ve been out of the loop, let me get you up to speed.  Certain …Read More


McDonald’s Mondays: Kickin’ it old school with Jason Alexander and the McDLT


[youtube]UTSdUOC8Kac[/youtube] Some of our younger readers will have no idea what I’m talking about, but for those of us that remember it, the McDLT was brilliant. Just like the ad says — it kept the hot side hot and the cool side cool.  Unfortunately it also created a ton of needless styrofoam trash and eventually …Read More


McDonald’s Mondays: Canada’s recycling is good — Sweden’s is better


Over the last few years a lot of small tweaks have been occurring at McDonald’s restaurants across Canada. One of the most satisfying of these changes for me and my wife has been the inclusion of a recycling option rather than just trash bin. But while our McDonald’s offers seperate containers for paper, plastic and …Read More


McDonald’s Mondays: Make McLove, not McWar


There are only three things in this world that are truly global — war, religion, and McDonald’s. Ok, ok — I admit, the word “business” probably would have been a little more apt than McDonald’s, but it’s still pretty accurate.  One can’t help but raise the question: are the global nature of war, religion and …Read More


McDonald’s Mondays: Further compromising the integrity of the news


I’m a big believer in the term “newsertainment.”  Back in the days before CNN, television news was news.  It wasn’t meant to make a profit — it was a legal requirement for the station to have and it always ran at a loss.  Although that may sound like a downer, it also meant they could …Read More
