The McRib Ain't Got Nothin' On Me

Were you faked out by the opening scene in this commercial?:

Not me! I sensed there was gonna be a twist1. I didn't know it was gonna be a McRib, but I knew there was something up.

So maybe I didn't see the ending of The Sixth Sense coming. Or The Crying Game. Or The Usual Suspects. Or Scream. Or Meatballs. But this one...I did (*pats self on back*).

Just wanted to let that be known.



1Psst...gather round closer (*looks around to make sure nobody else is in earshot*). Here's what clued me in: the guy and girl both lean in the same direction when going in for the 'kiss.' C'mon McDonalds, you can do better than that! In fact I almost looked away lest I see a poor guy blow his chance at kissing a hot girl by tilting his head the wrong way.

Yep...still the offseason...

The dude gets quite an angry face just before he bites into the McRib...kinda scary.

Mr. Customer said...

Didn't notice the head-tilt thing, but the set-up was pretty clear.

Eric Karros said...

My favorite person in the commercial is the guy right after the fake-out kiss couple who's doing the Axel Rose while eating his McRib.

Josh S. said...

I thought from the headline that this might be a Lasorda post, since his appearances are just as rare as the McRib's.

MR. F said...

Nothing gets past you, EK!

Josh S. said...

Davey Lopes officially up in this bish!

Kemp, your baserunning boners will no longer be tolerated.

Josh S. said...

And by Kemp, I mean everybody.

Alex said...

Just saw it too Josh - Lopes and Wallach. Who's taking over for the 'topes?

Mr. Customer said...

I'll be glad to see that guy back in Dodger blue.

rbnlaw said...

Wither Mariano Duncan?

rbnlaw said...

But, welcome back Mr. Lopes, nonetheless.

Spanky said...

Oh,Oh Oh Ohh Sweet McRib of Mieeine.

MR. F said...

If I ever eat another one, I'm going to eat it with utensils. Why?

SO I CAN KNOFE IT IN THE ROBS!!!

Josh S. said...

Spanky said...

^ Oh Shot!

Mr. Customer said...

The McRob: It will make you lose control of your vowels.

rbnlaw said...

O and O vibratoon.

karina said...

Hmmmm, I'd rather kiss than eat one of those. Is that thing good?

p.s I'm excited about the return of Davey Lopes. Welcome :)

What's this about your being excited to kiss Davey Lopes, Karina? Maybe I read that wrong.

Dusty Baker said...

That opening McRib eat (the female) is cute. I'd focus on her not some drive-thru faux rib sandwich.

Eric Karros said...

@DB - yeah, the McRib doesn't look that appetizing in the commercial. It actually didn't test well in initial screenings to 18-45 year-olds in terms of making them want to get a McRib.

On the other hand, it tested great in screenings to McRibs in terms of making them want to get with that girl.

karina said...

@Dusty Baker you got it all WRONG, as excited I am to see Davey Lopes on Dodger Blue again, I wouldn't kiss him. No offense, Mr Lopes.

Orel said...

Still trying to figure out who Karina would rather kiss.

Dusty Baker said...

Damn, there went my fantasy for the night, then.

*Karina and Davey Lopes making out cartoon dissolves in a poof of thought smoke*

Steve Sax said...

Hey, I've just slathered myself in McRib sauce.

Don't count those fantasies out just yet, Dusty.

Dusty Baker said...

Thanks for that bedtime thought, Sax!
