You can have Justin Timberlake, but you can’t have yoga! Well, here it is folks. From the big French ad agency, TBWA\PARIS, France, the McDonald’s commercial we’d hoped we’d never have to see.
Now there have been a few kooky yoga ads in our days and some are good for a giggle or two (Ocean Spray’s “downward facing bog” = total chucklesville), but this one just kicks us right in our nuggets.
We can’t tell if this is a sort of a good thing(?) or a terribly wrong and completely heinous thing. (We’re leaning towards the latter). On one hand, McDonald’s is backhandedly encouraging healthier habits, which is good, right? On the other hand, they’re using yoga to sell their French McNuggets, which is. just. no. Though maybe there’s some sort of flavorful connection? At least we can laugh at the temptation of food while practicing yoga. We’ve all been there!
So far, we haven’t seen this one air in the US. Yet. le sigh.
Would you like some fries with that shakti?
