Anyone notice McDonalds marketing towards minorities a lot
    #3743559 - 02/07/05 01:39 AM (12 years, 8 months ago)

The last im lovin it commercial I saw had a bunch of hispanic kids enjoyin the dollar menu, and the one before that was a group of black guys laughin about throw pillows or something while eatin quarterpounders. Before that it was a black guy deciding what to buy off the $ menu for his girlfriend.

The slogan, too. It's all in lower case and spelled wrong, like theyre trying to appeal to their stereotype of what a "minority" likes.

Maybe I watch too much tv.

im lovin it = ailin vomit

There is a commercial with a bunch of white kids trying to fix a grill acting like wiggers too
but I think you are trying to think to hard
there are a lot more commercials with people other than minorities

yea but I'm just talkin about recent mcdonald's commercials. Theres been a trend. Im not the only one who thought this tho, I mentioned it to my roomate, who's black, and he said he never noticed it until I said something. But he understands what Im saying, as well as a few other people I know.
Anyways it's not important

I challenge someone to find a recent MC Donald's commercial that doesn't have a minority or someone acting like one. (i.e. white kid that looks like a gangsta)

I'm all for diversity but when most of the population is not a minority (hence the name minority) and EVERY goddamn commercial has one (usually more) in it, well it seems weird.

Edit: This post sounds kinda bad, don't take it the wrong way.

Take it however you want, but I don't dislike minority's.

I just hate how McDonald's markets to people.

It's true and blatantly obvious, don't feel bad about pointing it out. Mcdonalds is what hip hop and "urban" culture is all about isn't it?

You know a company sucks when their commercials try to sell you something based on lifestyle instead of the merits of the product.

This is not that new however. The last round of airtime wasters was fairly blatant as well. One had a guy freestyling about their food. One had a DJ and his friends fiendin for a burger at like 3 in the morning after a night of spinnin/clubbin. I haven't seen the Hispanic one, and probably won't. Not many around here.

What are the commercials in the rural white areas like? Anyone live there and know? I can picture a bunch of highschool football stars going out in their new supercrew pickups on a Friday after a game.

Im not sure if you're kidding, but if you arent, you might be taking it a step too far. Theyre a corporation and their only motivation is money.

Kinda depends on how you look at it , and what part of country you are in .
I think they are targetting the MAJORITY :wink: By the way I am lilly white mofo :wink:
So IMO they are not reaching toward the MINORITY anymore :smirk:
And that damn MC'YD'S food is poison anyhow ! I'll stick with PUKE IN THE BOX !

Wouldn't it be funny if they showed a Mcdonald's commercial with an old black guy in the hospital? He would be on a bunch of machines to keep him alive because he had heart disease from eating McDonald's. He would slowly move his head towards the camera and gasp, "Yo yo yo....I'm lovin' it."

wrong...

they've been focusing on the black market for years.

please note the re-animated hip hop ronald dancing
and rapping.

heavier advertising and presence in the ghetto as
well as the last 3 ad campaigns, including the new
I'm loving it.

they've been playing to the blackies for years.

I actually stopped going to mcdonalds back in the day, because they used rap in their commercial. I refuse to buy anything that endorses stupidity (in this case, rap)

:lol:
Check this out:
Ghetto Delta
And then this:

McDonalds

And didn't you ever hear that KFC was putting Salpeter in the mashed potatoes to slow down the black population explosion? Or that white man made crack to try to extinguish them?
Hope you enjoy that :wink:

:peace:
