>McDonalds selling a product as an upscale restaurant quality burger
>>5066459From what I've read the ones in Japan are pretty good. They don't have to deal with some fat assed shaquaneeqa and her eight kids from eight different daddies all on welfare running around the place like cockroaches.
>>5066475Holy shit I want all of those.
one of the pivotal votes in our nations history
>>5066476No its exactly the fucking same you racist fuck, they just have a more limited breakfast menu, they introduce new food items more often, and theres a few regionalized dishes on the menu.Get a passport shit head
>>5066459When they sold the Arch Deluxe here, it was my main food source. I'd have one almost every day. When they stopped selling it, I turned towards greener pastures.
>>5066476but the original thinking behinds the first succesful mcdonalds was affordability as well as putting money in young peoples pockets while they figure out what to do in life
>>5066484Actually, I went to McDonald's once when I was in Japan. The food was very similar, yes, but there was a definite quality difference. Moss Burger was still better though.
>>5066483>McDLToh baby it's that time again>voting for the big shit or the shit poundershiggy diggity doohttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UTSdUOC8Kac
>>5066484What did I write that was racist? You're the one clearly being a presumptuous and pompous cunt... Be specific you fucking nigger!
>>5066500>our tasty sauceThat phrase, and the color of the sauce in the ad, suggests that it wasn't straight mayo back then. Wonder what it was...
>>5066508secret man sauce!
>>5066493>you'll never get a sack of fries and a liter of cola for $3 ever again. fucking health nazis and Morgan Spurlock.
>>5066506That steak looks ..... suspicious
>>5066668Looks like ground beef
>>5066549>90's and millennial kids will never know the joy of having a birthday party at mcdonalds in the 80'sthat shit was off the hooooook
>>5066475I just nostalgia'd hard. I had most if not all of those when I was a kid.
>>5066678Could you describe your experience? What was it like? Did Grimace make an appearance?
>>5066700Uh, you're at McDonalds with your bros, you're like 8, they have a playground, Happy Meals, and ice cream. It's a life changing experience for any 8 year old.
>>5066678>'60s, '70s, '80s, '90s and millennial kids will never know the joy of mcdonalds barbecue in the '40s and '50s
>>5066711Those 'Whites Only'-Mcdonalds must have been something huh great grandpappy?
>>5066711>kids born in the 1900's will never know the joy of living in a world without fast food
>>5066722They still have this one in Germany, it's nice.
>>5066725>onion nuggetsall of my WANT. I used to work at a seafood restaurant that would sell "onion nuggets", which were essentially the sweet core of the onions served up like onion rings. So fucking good
wait, someone actually likes mcdonalds shit?
>>5066708You act as if that still doesn't happen.
These old food advertisement and placemat threads are really interesting anonGreat work!
>>5066740>this oneyou wrote that as if it's been unique to your country for years
>>5066724>gather-round chillins! Let me tell you, when I was a boy, monkey people weren't allowed in the same restaurant as humans! We never had to worry about being behind someone named Day'leeshus trying to buy a dollar cone with food stamps, we never got knock-out gamed, and people never had to hear some cracked out hooker try to use an Arby's coupon to buy a Big Mac. Ah, bygone times...>"OMG grandpa! Check your white cis male privilege! We're reporting you to King Obama's tolerance police."
>>5066774McDonald's were a treat for kids back then. Now it's part of their diet.
>>5066825It is funny to think that it ever was considered a treat.
>>5066841>not enjoying a $1 McDouble once in a blue moon
>>5066825I wouldn't know. I never liked McDonalds except for the apple pies. I always yearned for the Whopper Hopper but it never happened. Now it would look as pathetic as these guys.
>>5066824Yeah like I'm going to listen to some useelss old man that can't even work an iphone. Greatest Generation my ass.
>>5066841This. How shitty of a cook does your mom or dad have to be such that McD's looks like a "treat" by comparison.
>>5066847>>5066841Underage will never understand.
>>5066858>Underage will never understand.Just because your parents were terrible cooks and had unworldly and bland palates doesn't mean that is the case for everyone else.Also, not everyone treats their children like dogs and gives them "treats" as a form of behavioral modification. Christ, no wonder so many people are overweight - the moment they had a car or were on their own they felt the need to overindulge in their "treat" foods.lol pathetic.
>>5066858No, I understand. As a kid going out was considered special or a privilege whether it was McD's or Red Lobster. That's right. Red Lobster was fine dining. I was born in '82
>>5066871You must have been a miserable child
>>5066858To me it was never about the food. It was the toy and the container. I loved getting the toys and the halloween pails and lunchbox things.
>>5066884Born in 83. I remember going out to Red Lobster for my younger brother's birthday. That little fucker ordered the Admiral Feast when he like was 6 years old. And dipped everything in ketchup.
>>5066890>>5066889No, I'm just well-adjusted, fit, successful, and was raised in a mutually-respectful environment by friendly, intelligent, successful parents who instilled values, not hamburgers, in their children.
>>5066841Not the Anon you're replying to, but when I grew up (40 years ago) McDonald's was a treat. It was to expensive to eat erryday if you were poor or middle class, and rich people wouldn't set foot in one. Much of the marketing was squarely aimed at kids.Then it changed. It was no longer mascots in funny suits, but "You deserve a break today" selling convenience to busy parents. Then the "Mac tonight" ad campaign (very successful) selling the place as a legitimate dinner destination for a businessman on the road.Then the value menu made it so the kind of people who actually would eat there everyday could afford to do so.They went from being an indulgence for the kids (and rock bands on tour) to a ghetto staple.
>>5066888Sad thing is those Muppet Babies plushies will have lasted longer than those real babies they were trying to help.
>>5066459This is what fucked them in the ass.Oh my god I hope somebody got fired. I hope somebody got -castrated-.YOU DON'T SELL FOOD BY TELLING YOUR CUSTOMERS IT'S 'GROSS'.That's what #Rekt them. The fact is the sandwich was actually kind of tasty. But young people are a shared demographic when it comes to fast food. You can market something to 'adults' but young people still factor in there.So whoever came up with the idea of commercials of kids gagging in revulsion in the mere mention of a product...
>>5066894I am not arguing with it being considered a treat at the time but looking back it feels funny to consider McD's as a treat. btw I posted this as well >>5066884
>>5066894I just wanted the toy. Even then I thought the food was shit.
>>5066884Did you local McDonald's ever have a one time only once a year sale where hamburgers were like $0.15 and cheeseburgers were $0.25? My mom would come home with like 4 giant bags filled with hamburgers and cheeseburgers. I only remember this happening like two or three times. Don't know it this was just a local thing or nation wide.
>>5066912>22g of protein in a patty that smallnotbad.jpg
>>5066892When I was a kid I usually got the popcorn shrimp off the kids menu until I got very sick on it. So much time spent puking into a bucket at the side of my makeshift bed. I can't recall what I would get before then.
>>5066923I never paid attention to the prices. My parents had a Friday night "Let's go out" ritual they started when they were in college and too poor to eat real food. We ended up going wherever usually the mall which meant fast food. Though when they started that ritual they were in SoCal surrounded by real zagat rated restaurants and not fast food.
>>5066911Red Lobster tried hard to pass itself off as fine dining to people who were not in the habit of dining out. Because back then middle class families didn't really go out to eat much. When I was a kid in the suburbs (late 70's, early 80's) we almost never went out to eat. Mom was a homemaker who knew how to cook. Instead of going out to Red Lobster she'd pick up a few lobsters and a few steaks, and we'd have a family celebration that way. And she'd crow about how we were eating better than Red Lobster for half the price.That was ingrained into me, which is why I learned to cook for myself instead of eating fast food once I got out on my own.Once I was a teen dad got a fat job, and we moved to a major city. Then wed went out to eat at the kind of places that made food mom couldn't make at home. That was an education, too. I went straight from good home cooking to good restaurant food without stopping at quasi-upscale chains. I'm very thankful to my parents for that.
>>5066493Jesus it even has a CHEMTRAIL!Now all it needs are freaky David Dees fat people.I thought it WAS a Dees illustration at first.
>>5066950>And she'd crow about how we were eating better than Red Lobster for half the price.Holy shit that reminds me of that Eddie Murphy story about McDonald's hamburgershttp://youtu.be/08c0BXTVpfs
>>5066950My mother would cook chuck steak marinaded in a soy sauce concoction. That was as fine as dining got in my household. Her mother was too much of a tomboy to learn from my great grandmother any recipes and too drunk to pass any on if she knew some.
>>5066957Except she was right.
>>5066888I have Miss Piggy. I never knew she came from McDonald's.
>>5066881Notice the healthier meal has way more protein. If all I ate was one Monster Thickburger a day, I could still easily burn more calories than it provided. But, I'd be hungry most of the day, feel like crap, and not get much nutrition beyond protein and fat.
>>5066963Experiences vary.As a kid my parents liked to pretend the burgers they and their friends made were good and even better than fast food, but even today as an adult fast food still tastes better.
>>5066982>even today as an adult fast food still tastes better.Probably because you grew up with a taste for it. I was lucky enough to grow up on good home cooking - mom didn't even try to replicate fast food at home - so to me fast food doesn't taste good, home cooking does. It's due to recognizable flavors. I grew up with beef that tasted like beef, cheese that tasted like cheese, potatoes that tasted like potatoes. McDonald's just tastes like McDonald's, and I never developed a taste for that.
>>5066475>tfw we have all four of those in the cupboard
>>5066912>what backdrop would best complement our new burger?>LET'S SHOOT A FUCKTON OF LASERS AT IT FUCK YEAH LASERS ARE THE SHITI miss the nineties.
>>5067012I had those lasers in backdrop of my 2nd grade pictures
>>5066995how fortunate of you
>>5066505>'What did I write that was racist'>'You fucking Nigger'Back to /b/, 12 year old.
thank you drive thru
>>5067044No shit. I'm well aware I'm a lucky bastard. Plenty of folks my generation and after don't even know what home cooking is, and I eat it erryday'.
>>5066982It tastes good to me but I realize that without fiber it's literally no substance. The same principle of why you are hungry again after eating Chinese.I would suggest if you DO get it as a treat be sure to eat an apple or something first so your body doesn't think you are trying to Jew it.
>>5066995We didn't eat much in the way of potatoes. Usually dinner consisted of white rice, a frozen or canned vegetable, and more often than not a piece of baked chicken.
>>5066912>dat early 90s font & coloring. The future is here.
>>5067062I never feel hungry after Chinese and usually they give such ridiculously huge portions though it is mostly rice. I don't feel hungry after fastfood either. I could probably eat just the burger and feel full.
>>5066724>Implying a McDonald's whose customers are only fine, upstanding white folks is not strictly better than one where you have to wait behind obese shaniquas and bix noods with their obnoxious monkey children running about
>>5066471i really miss the old chicken mcniggers, from before they transferred to "all white meat"
>>5067068Good, then you have a good source of fiber in your diet somewhere. A lot of people -don't- and that fucks them way up.
>>5067088There is a local McD's which I avoid for that very reason. Way too ghetto.
>>5067094Uh no. I usually eat only one meal a day and it is fast food.
>>5067053its just a word
>>5066476Years ago I heard the only way they could sell American products to the Japanese was if it was sold at a premium so it would give off the air of a luxury item and therefore a status symbol.
>>5067106I remember being 12.
>>5067129me too, but what does that have anything to do with my response? it'd be much easier on everyone else if they could just laugh at the word nigger than get so overwhelmed and mad over it.
>>5066871My parents beat me as a form of behavioral modification.P.S. "behavioral modification" is better known as "raising your child". It's that thing that parents are supposed to do between the ages of 0 to 23 so you don't turn into a fucking useless NEET.
>>5067135>beaten until he was 23
>>5067133To be fair, if you've ever been confronted with actual in-person racism, the word takes on some powerfully negative connotations and people are rather justified in being offended by it. If you've lived in Midwestern suburbs your whole life and only ever encountered it in the Internet then it might be funny, but there are people for whom "nigger" triggers a real emotional response.On the other hand this is fucking 4chan and nothing we say or do really matters.
Seeing that, and OP, made me want to eat that suddenly.If only it showed up once in a while ... Last time I've ate it, it was 2 years ago.
>>5067162no I have known plenty of african americans that flip their shit over the word nigger. it makes them look very stupid and ignorant. a smart person wouldn't let words like that offend them. in all honesty I believe some african americans like being called a nigger because then that gives them a free pass to act like idiots and cause a giant scene/fight.
>>5067162Suge Knight would prefer to be called a nigger. Good enough for him. Good enough for the rest.
>>5066493>limited time onlykek
Is it just me, or is the chick on the place mat hot?
>>5066888And I've got blue hair, HA!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ju75XsCO4o
>>5066467>>5066467> Government sponsored official grading system for spuds
>>5066524I'm calling bullshit on this one. They don't use any of those products. Possibly the plochman's but wtf with the rest of it? I wonder how much that cost them to get their brand subbed in.
>>5066678I was just thinkin about that, they still have those closed / walled-in dining rooms in the old mcds. Not really closed, but there is only one path in/out. That was for the birthday parties.They also were supportive of sport teams. If yer soccer/baseball team went, they would give you a big ass yellow McDs cooler, like a 5 or 6 gallon jug that you could bring it in and they would fill it with that orange drank they had. I don't think they still have it. Was kind of like kool-aid but better.It was like pic related. Except it was McDs branded and the hope was you would take it with you to the game and display it proudly so everyone could see their contribution. I think it costs $ if they even still do it.
>>5067373pretty sure that's a kid.
>>5067581You do realize the ad is from 28 years ago? Their business practices may have changed a bit in the meantime.
>>5067299>http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ju75XsCO4oonly 13 years, man
You fucked up at the part where you thought an upcale restaurant would serve hamburgers. Dipshit.
>>5068109 Well .. nicer restaurants than McDonalds. It was marketed as a LUXURY burger, Cunt.
>>5068109Also: yes, there are upscale restaurants that sell hamburgers. >Dipshit
>>5068216Hamburg steak was first sold in upscale restaurants
>>5067156usually if they do it right they can stop beating you around the time you're in middle schoolI've seen more than enough college-age kids that ought to have been beaten more, that's for sure
>>5066506this actually doesnt look half bad
>>5066459As someone who works at Micky Ds I feel I should say.Don't eat the scrambled eggs.
>>5068299Why? Cause you guys jizz in the beaten egg bowl?
>>5068304That would imply that we actually use eggs.
>>5068306y-y-you don't use eggs?
>>5068376If it's solid yellow, it's "egg product".If it's the egg white with the yolk, it's a real egg. Depends on which sandwich if you get real egg.
>>5066912>my last name>on McDonald's shitFuck you guys.
>>5066459McD's is a restaurant
>>5066524The word 'brands' has a little copyright mark on it in the first paragraph, but not in the second or third paragraph. What's up with that?
>>5066475We had the Batman one.
>>5066708They definitely had those in the 90's, what the fuck are you on.
>>5068376When I worked there they used real eggs, I doubt things have changed that much.We broke eggs into metal rings on the grill to create the perfect egg circles for the egg mcmuffins
>>5067632Yes but the kid probably very hot by now.9/10 would by her a burger and ....
>>5069264hell, they still have them. that dude is on crack
>>5067625I did not think their orange drank was better than kool-aid. But as a kid it was better than water. I remember going to some kind of soccer camp when I was a kid. 8 hours of running around on a hot ass Saturday and all they fed us was a measly hamburger and tiny ass cup of orange drink.
>>5066459LOLand they arent aware of all the 5 year old adults who ask to remove pickles and onions from their big macs? NO ICE IN MY FANTA EITHER BITCH
>>5066483I never understand the "with cheese" part of the quarter pounder, they already come with cheese
>>5066508Its called McChicken sauce, not mayo.
>>5066522>tfw never given this full of a package of fries
>>5069710I think they just want to point out that it comes with cheese. If you don't want cheese, you need to ask for it w/out cheese
>>5066531you get a litre of cola for $1 at the fucking store
>>5066545i'd kill to see employees in the last hat
>>5066872>.eggnog milkshakeall of my what
>>5066678Man I had a birthday party at McD's in like '97. We had McDonalds pizza and played in the PlayPlace.
>>5067178Now no matter how fancy they make these ads, it will never change the fact they're handcrafted by desperate greasy teenagers in the back grill area.
>>5069741I think the last birthday party I went to at McDonald's was probably between 1991-1993. I remember when my local one would have a haunted tour through their basement on Halloween.
>>5068299if theres no more placemats lets make this a McD's insider thread
>>5068399Which country you at?In Australia they only use real eggs.
>>5069741THE KRUSTY KRAB PIZZAIS THE PIZZAFOR YOU AND ME
The key to marketing to trashy people is to make them think they're middle class. There's some 40 year old gas station employee who fucking rants and raves about some 11 dollar meal she loves from mcdonalds.
>>5069815McDonalds has meals for ELEVEN DOLLARS? jesus
>>5066459It was a good example of a bad marketing campaign."Some people will find it to be disgusting. Buy it!"
>>5069815>The key to marketing to trashy people is to make them think they're middle class.The key to marketing to most people is to target their aspirations. This means:Poor people get sold their concept of "middle class", which involves going out to eat, brand consciousness and conspicuous luxury goods, such as big flatscreen TV's, cognac, oversize vehicles, "designer" clothing and such.You sell the middle class the aspiration of being "upper" middle class. They're an anxious bunch, because they're terrified of appearing lower class, so they'll glom on to anything that proves they're middle class. They shop at the mall. They'll buy all the lowfat and diet shit you can come up with, because they're scared of getting so fat they look poor. They go in for fad diets and "superfoods".The upper middles are easy, too. They aspire to be rich. Sell them the idea of luxury and worldliness, because they wish they were rich. Chain joints aren't luxurious enough for them, but they'll overpay for a burger in a fake English pub setting in a heartbeat.Where McDonald's has fucked themselves is by being too successful among the poor they scare middle class folks away, for fear eating there would make them look poor. They introduced all the "healthy" options to try to lure them back, and it sort of worked. But they still have far to go to lose the ghetto/white trash association they've picked up over the last decade.
>>5069746>haunted tour of their basement how spooky
>>5066884The whole family used to get dressed up to go out to eat in general. I remember this even in the early 90s. There was a Western Sizzler in our town that was off the fucking hook.
>>5066912I thought these were delicious.
>>5072080Are in your 40s?
>>5069208Go to bed, Niall.
>>5072248Almost. I remember when McNuggets were new :-(
>>5066459>pic>superlative, subline, wow its goodWho talks like that? Ad execs?
>>5066550>$110>in 1985 dollars>to be a walking ad for McDonald'sNo.
>>5069710All I know is if I ever try to order simply a "quarter pounder", they ALWAYS ask me to confirm I want cheese on it.
>>5073151The 1980s were a different time. Shit like that back then was actually cool. It was all pretty much still new. Now, it is like, "fuck that noise".
>>5072985> Who talks like that?
>>5066549oh my god the frosting on thos cakes were fucking orgasmic
>>5066774stupid question but do they make the cake or is it something they order from like one of there warehouses? does anyone know
>>5066923i remember that too where do you live cuz it happen down here in Texas too
FUCK THE FOOD INDUSTRYYYYYYYYYYYY
>>5068249>being so unintelligent and incompetent of a parent that you actually need to physically harm your children for them to learn proper behaviorMaybe you and your kid(s) shouldn't have been such bumblefuck retards?
