While processed food supplies last.

Can we get a 'white people' tag please?

Jet Bin Fever - 2012-03-13

This video applies to black people just as much as white. There isn't any awkward dancing or anything in this so I don't think it needs one.

Children of all races love happy meals.

0:15 is pretty damn white.

Cena_mark - 2012-03-13

That's not being white that's being in a late 70s commercial.

This video is all about appealing to white culture. Sure, McDonald's will give diabetes to kids of all races and creeds without discrimination, but this commercial appeals to middle class suburban whites full stop.

They used to have cookies?

Doomstein - 2012-03-13

Yes, they were tasty little shortbread jobs. Now kids today get apple slices instead. Probably caked in pesticides.

I think I remember McDonald's cookies. They were little chocolate chip ones.

They also used to fry the apple pies.

You have to go to Whataburger to get a fried apple pie these days.

Caminante Nocturno - 2012-03-13

Those weren't apple pies, they were eggrolls full of apple paste.

Binro the Heretic - 2012-03-13

Po-tay-to, po-tah-to.

Cena_mark - 2012-03-13

Goodness Poopstein, McDonalds makes a step in the right direction and you still gotta hate. Apples are apples and though they might not be organic Portlander approved apples they're still apples.

5 stars for the look on the girl's face when dad shouts "A PRIZE?!"

Shortbread-type buscuits. http://www.chocolatesuze.com/images/2276.jpg

Those look wonderful.

Since I preferred the filet-o-fish to the burgers at the time, I wasn't all that interested in Happy Meals.

But then they did a promotional tie-in with "Star Trek: The Motion Picture" and had some really cool toys as the prizes.

I remember a little communicator that had a comic strip inside. The strip was a long scroll with the panels arranged vertically. The communicator had an opening shaped like a TV screen. one panel at a time would show through the screen. There were knobs at the top and bottom of the communicator that you turned to bring up the next panel or rewind the strip.

There was also a "star map" that came with a little blue magnifying glass. The "map" appeared to be a haze of random red dots, but when you looked at it through the magnifying glass the dots were filtered out and you could see all the stars and planets.

That was totally bad-ass back in the day.

Mcdonald toys these days are worse than cheap crap. At least our cheap crap toys did cool little things - now, it's some disney or pixar character, and that's the big deal. You want that plastic to move? Imagine It, Bitches!
Yeah, we had better cheap crap when I was a kid...

Caminante Nocturno - 2012-03-13

That father looks Dennis Nilsen.

Tobster - 2012-03-13

Wow, "small" (or maybe they call it "child's sized" now) was called "regular" back then.

StanleyPain - 2012-03-13

There was a time when McDonald's was not great, but not nearly as horrific as it is now.
