Leo Burnett London Channels Hall & Oates Classic in Uplifting McDonald's Ad

Creative 270 Add to collection

Spot directed by Neil Gorringe will run on TV and Cinema across the UK

Leo Burnett London Channels Hall & Oates Classic in Uplifting McDonald's Ad

Agency Leo Burnett London has created a new ad for McDonald’s that will run on TV and cinema until August 30th right across the UK.

The 30 and 40-second spots aim to drive brand affinity with parents by reminding them of the shared pleasure a trip to McDonald’s can bring.

They capture that well-known moment of shared joy when a parent tells their child they’re going to McDonald’s.

This ad shows a variety of happy family scenes in which children are dancing – in the rain, in the car, at home, in shops, on a football pitch… set to an upbeat soundtrack.

Emily Somers. VP Marketing and Food Development at McDonald’s UK, explains: “This summer, we wanted to celebrate the joy the whole family feels on a trip to McDonald’s. To do this, we’ve not only brought to life the joy of excited children but also the feeling that this gives to parents, capturing the essence of ‘good times’ which McDonald’s is all about.”
