McDonald’s and Atari – Perfect Together?


Love this bit of history. Back in 1982, McDonald’s ran a scratch and win Atari contest. This great scan pretty much sums up the contest rules and prizes. I didn’t get to eat McDonald’s too often in 1982, but I am pretty sure I got to scratch at least one of these tickets.

Dig the closing paragraph

Thanks to McDonald’s and Atari, the old-fashioned TV Dinner is being replaced by exciting Video Dinner that could make you a winner!

Pure poetry.

    Wow, two great failure together. btw that sandwich looks like it would taste really shitty. The 80’s left a bad taste in my mouth because of Nintendo controllers that I chewed on.
