McDonalds Commercial “The Beef Goes On”


I have had this commercial sitting in a folder for about a year and when I spotted it this morning I thought it would be a parody of the Glen Fry classic “The Heat is On”. I was disappointed when I discovered it wasn’t, but after thinking about it, a parody of “The Heat is On” would be unnecessary. You could just play the regular song with images of food cooking and I would be at the drive-thru before you could say “do you want fries with that?”

Now what was I saying?

Oh yeah, here is a great 80s McDonald’s commercial, just not as great as it could have been…
