According to a new television commercial, McDonald’s can kill you. The ad features a middle aged man loving a hamburger presumably from McDonalds all the way to the morgue.
It shows the corpse still clutching a Big Mac in his hand. A voice over says, “High cholesterol, high blood pressure, heart attacks. Tonight make it vegetarian.”
The ad takes direct aim at McDonald’s and their long time advertising slogan, “I’m lovin’ it” when the ad ends with “I was lovin’ it.” Also it shows the fast food chain restaurant’s golden arches.
The controversial ad by Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) is set to air on September 16, during The Daily Show with John Stewart in the Washington D.C. area.
