Throwback Thursday: Dinner at McDonalds

Throw in Ray Charles, Harry Connick Jr., and a Dick Tracy-like city and you have McDonalds' late 80s Mac Tonight campaign.

This campaign was geared towards adults ('cause it would probably scare the dear life out of children who were use to cuddly Grimace) to buy late night artery clogging cheap hamburgers. This is the version of the commercial is the one I most remember.

There is a crazy McDonalds here in Orlando that has a "life size" version of Mac the Night. I wonder if any kids even know who the heck he is.

Mac Tonight...classic but weird. People sat around a table and came up with THAT to pitch to McD's. Then they bought it. And the burgers.
