In an ad that will mesmerize the kids, McDonald's basically reads the brief stating how they improve their happy meal. The art direction is a cute animation where toy train type figurines are working on a human sized Happy Meal, all the while telling us how they reduced the salt, the saturated fats, and introduced water & organic milk to the deal. When I was a kid any animation had my complete and undivided attention - after a few airings Im sure some kids will be able to recite all of these arguments by heart. "No, we're not going to McDonald's" "But mum, I can get a happy meal with organic milk, and they reduced the sodium!" Crafty, very crafty.
Leo Burnett London created the stop-motion 60-second TV ad. It will be backed by press and in-store executions, as well as six films, that will be shared on social media, that go into more details about the changes McDonald’s has made to the Happy Meal.
