Imagine if a McDonald’s advertisement looked as captivating as one produced by Apple. Picture a Big Mac and fries marketed with minimalist type, a white background, and CEO rattling off terms like “refined,” “complexity,” and “extraordinary.”
Well, Buzzfeed have done it. Their team has made and released a Mcdonalds advert in the style of an Apple advert. The advert features several standard features of an Apple advert. White backgrounds, a high-level member describing the new product whilst using lots of buzz words.
“what happens when machinery meats meat”.
Chicken is never mentioned as an ingredient in the ad, however, it explains:
“To change the way we experience chicken is to change chicken itself.”
In the video, the fake advert tells us about three new products. Fri, Nugget and Mac. All of which are being described as now “refined” and much better than the last version. The advert is very clever and well made by the team at BuzzFeed. It’s very impressive how by using a white background and some clever words, they make me crave a McDonalds now. Maybe I’ll be able to utilise their “Smart Grease” to help me find that chip from the other night, it’s here somewhere…
Burger King are holding nothing back in regards to their new branded mobile app for Android – so much so that they’re offering Android smartphones on their website.
But as the famous saying goes “Nothing in life is free”. The fine print reads:
“Free phone offer is only available with select service plans, data and messaging features and a new two-year subscriber agreement. Price valid for primary and secondary lines only. Offer is subject to identity, credit, and/or eligibility check, and may require a deposit.” BurgerKing
But I’m sure you’re more interested in what’s actually on offer besides some tasty fast food deals. Burger King are offering models such as the Galaxy S3 and S4, the Motorola Moto X and lesser known models such as the Casio F’ZOne Commando and LG Enact. There is no mention of the latest and greatest, but the above phones will certainly get the job done for all your general smartphone needs.
Once you’ve decided you want to take advantage of this deal, you’re forwarded to Amazon to complete the transaction. CNet checked out this process and reported:
“For example, I picked out the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini on Verizon. Once on Amazon, the cheapest new Verizon individual plan is about $55 per month for 250MB of data. So your free Burger King smartphone will end up costing you the same as any other free-phone deal.”
Finally, what does the app offer? Nothing too amazing is the answer – a range of food coupons and a handy restaurant locator for those drunken nights wandering the streets looking for much-needed sustenance. We’ve been told that the app is mostly functional, with some intermittent errors loading the menu.
The app is free but unfortunately the phone is not. Is it worth it? It’s up to you to decide. But in the end you’re going to be paying the same for the phone and plan as you would through your regular channels.
Fast food giant, Burger King has realized the need for people to be able to eat while they are doing what they do best, what ever that might be, either gaming, working, jogging, etc. Burger King only offered 50 of these units to their biggest customers from Puerto Rico. These units were given away to celebrate its 50th anniversary of serving customer in Puerto Rico.
Personally I think that they look like a horse feeding bag, maybe not so much, we are not horses, we don’t need to stand to eat. When I eat, I like to enjoy my meal, sitting down, chewing my food thoroughly. If you’re constantly on the go, this might be the thing for you though.
