McDonald’s goes to the Disco

McDonald’s has often embraced popular trends for their advertising and in the late seventies they produced this ad that has a nod to disco. It is just one vignette in this 30 second spot, but it stand out since it seems to work the best with the mildly disco-ish jingle. So give it watch and enjoy two dancers who stop boogieing so that they can go get a Big Mac, a hurdler running to get a Big Mac, and my favorite part, a stop motion assembly of that famous fast food sandwich.
