McDonald’s – Nobody Cares About Me (2020)

McDonald’s could have just put out an ‘ordinary tweet’ stating that the McRib was back in a couple of weeks. But they did this instead and got over 150K interactions! it’s always “when is the McRib coming back” and never “how are you doing person who runs the McDonald’s account” — McDonald’s (@McDonalds) October 23, 2020

Wendy’s – McDonald’s Burn Tweet (2017)

Wendy’s never misses an opportunity to have a go at rival brands – and this tweet is no exception.  In fact other brands must live in fear, one wrong move and… (Of course, McDonald’s aren’t daft and, after all, could have easily deleted this…maybe they used a little Cheese Pie as bait and hooked Wendy’s?) When the tweets are as broken as the ice cream machine. — Wendy’s (@Wendys) November 24, 2017

Find Digital Marketing Inspiration in these Funny McDonald’s Adverts

One of the most effective ways to improve your own digital and social media marketing is to study brands that have mastered the art. McDonald’s is an iconic fast food brand, so they’d be excused for focusing on the fries and letting their reputation market itself. But in actual fact, McDonald’s has been responsible for some of our favourite funny ads of recent years. Let’s take a look at the very best examples, and pick

McDonald’s UK – Ball Pit (2020)

Synopsis This ad follows a coffee-drinker’s ill-fated visit to a hipster coffee shop. She’s on the phone, and initially fails to notice the bizarre things going on around her. Having realised she has paid an excessive amount for her coffee, she starts to take in her surroundings — she’s just helped fund the cafe’s ridiculous excesses. A live Dj set, massages, swinging egg chairs and a ball pit are all available for patrons to enjoy

McDonalds – Saver Menu – Rubber Glove (2019)

Synopsis This twenty-second ad consists of a single visual gag. We imagine the treatment looked something like: Close up of mum putting on daughter’s swimming cap. Pull out to reveal it’s a rubber glove as she didn’t have time to find swimming cap. Review It’s simple but effective, and bound to get a laugh of recognition from parents with swimmer children everywhere. Ironic that McDonalds have used the same Ads two years in a row

McDonald’s – Free Range Freshly Cracked Eggs (2020)

A well-pitched funny ad can achieve many things. Helping a brand respond to false assumptions about their product is among the more niche. Here, McDonald’s wanted to put to bed any allegations that the eggs used in their sausage and egg McMuffins are anything but ‘real’. They’ve done this through layered comedy — surreal visuals illustrate an alternate universe where their eggs are sliced from gelatinous tubes and poor Sam dances in a shower of

McDonald’s – Crunchy On The Outside, Fluffy On The Inside (2020)

This funny advert featuring England rugby star Joe Marler shows how a solid comedy idea and a tight script can make for a highly effective ad, reducing the need for slick visual production. The ad is essentially one big meta-joke — Joe talks us through the classic techniques of TV advertising, spelling out the message that would usually be in the subtext. The switch between Joe’s ‘hard’ and ‘soft’ voice is a particularly funny highlight,

McDonald’s – McCafé (2017)

McDonald’s has produced several funny adverts that contrast the customer experience at a comically overblown hipster coffee shops with the no-nonsense experience of getting a coffee from their McCafé. It’s a classic advertising technique — portray your brand as the best option by contrasting it with an unfavourable representation of your competitors. It’s the “Should’ve gone to Specsavers…” approach. It can be a risky approach — you don’t want to alienate any of your audience,

McDonald’s – Word Association Battle (2020)

This talent-driven ad from McDonald’s sees grime star Lethal Bizzle face off against Countdown’s resident lexicographer Susie Dent in a word association ‘battle’. It’s not hilarious, and it’s only tangentially related to the brand message that McDonald’s is trying to communicate (namely — download the My McDonald’s app. So why have we included it in our selection of favourite McDonald’s ads? Because we want to applaud McDonald’s for daring to incorporate live, improvised comedy in

McDonald’s – Eggs (2019)

McDonald’s has put out several ads with the basic message: ‘Our eggs are real, damn it!’ It’s clearly a delicate subject. As long as they keep using comedy to convey that message, we’re not complaining. Regular readers will know how much we appreciate adverts that layer different types of comedy — this is a fine example, with jokes in the voiceover, physical comedy, and plenty of text-gags. Keep an ear out for some off-screen calamity
