Give Your Mouth Muuuuch Happiness

“America’s Meat and Potatoes” was one of McDonald’s most short-lived ad campaigns, probably because it’s actually extremely cynical, and maybe because it spawned fairly racist (although clearly inspired by Coming to America) commercials like this one.

    Racist? Really? Sorry, but I think it’s clearly lampooning Coming to America and anything you see as racist is tainted by today’s overly PC attitudes.

    Not trying to start anything, but I just don’t see it. Hey, if everyone agreed it be pretty boring huh?
