It is never too late in life to fall in love…at McDonald’s

I have noticed that certain McDonald’s locations are very popular among the senior citizen crowd. It makes me wonder if winter love did blossom over a shared apple pie like in this startlingly long commercial from the mid-eighties. With its soft music and sweet message it is a refreshing change of pace from the senior citizen commercial I see nowadays (they run them all the time on retro TV channels). All of them seem to involve being very sick, getting hurt or some medicine related to those things.

It has always been a mystery to my why more advertising isn’t focused on the lifestyle of an aging population. I guess they have done the math, but if all targeted advertising was as adorable as this, I might not be switching the channel so often.
