    Of course summeris the best part of the year and McDonalds wouldnt be short of marketing dollars or ideas.

    Usually you get a few girls in bikinis diving in a pool with friends, jumping out to scoff down a big mac or something? Or the beach etc..

    But they intead get a retarded looking imitation richard branson lookalike to pull silly faces, wear silly sunglasses and drive an old bomb car?

    Honestly is that the best mcdonalds could come up with for summer 2017? Really?

    Even the old hamburglar should get a run before that richard branson reject.

    Very disappointed.

    I heard Sir Richard Branson owns many houses, many Samsung TV's and isn't overweight. Also he does not suffer metal disabilities.

    Who cares... McDonalds markets itself (as shitty, fattening, junk food.).

    For references sake I didn't see "Richard Branson", but rather "washed up far north coast of NSW beachy dropkick"




    I prefer this ad though..

    Because they are desperate to look good when charging ten bucks for a small burger deal with fries and coke.
    Bought a big Mac BLT and it was sloppy crap, stick that one.

    I had a mad picture of me a Richard Branson sculling a beer each at the V festival a few years back. The guy is a genuine legend.

    Bro I just walked up to him as he was roaming around his festival and challenged him to a beer scull. We both did it and had a laugh and my mates took a few photos which he was cool with he shook my hand and said he hopes I'm having a lovely day and then walked off. Proper f**king legend in my eyes.

    I used to follow him on Facebook until he started pushing political agendas through his page day after day after day.

    Remember the time he took a picture next to a sleeping employee? LMAO...
