McDonald’s Canada ad

It’s surprising what we might have missed during the pandemic. There’s the obvious stuff – hugs with friends and family, the chance to talk over travails and triumphs face to face – and then there’s the small moments that might have even been a bit annoying, but now they’re prevented, you want them back.

The spot is the latest in what appears to be a burgeoning trend in advertising of taking a musical theatre approach. Directed by Max Sherman, it certainly makes the most of the ridiculousness of turning an ad for fries into a power ballad.
