French McDonald's Ad Strikes Blow for Tolerance (Seriously)


Look, Gut Check isn't a big fan of fast food. But we'd be lying if we said this French ad for McDonald's didn't make us smile. (It helps that the food plays no role whatsoever.)

Someone with more college degrees than we have could probably deconstruct this and argue that it achieves the opposite of what it intends or something. Whatever. We love it.
