McDonald’s viral video: Two thumbs up!

Take a look at this hilarious rap video created by two regular Joes. It went viral over the Internet (via YouTube) and got McDonald’s attention. Now McDonald’s is airing it, unedited slightly edited, on national television.

Say hello to citizen marketing!

Great move by the McDonald’s marketing team. Now I can’t stop thinking about the nugget rap!

Hat tip to Virginia over at Brains on Fire for leading me to the video.

    As noted on my blog post, the McD’s ad was edited a bit. They cut it down to under :30 seconds and they had an end branded “lock up” with the McD logo.

    Rumor has it you have your own unique McD’s song. You should have gone public with it, that could have been you in that video!
