We Are Unlimited launches Hamburger Menu takeover in collaboration with Reddit and Golin
McDonald’s Turns Reddit’s ‘Hamburger Menu’ into an Actual Burger Menu

On December 3rd, McDonald’s is putting a unique spin on a classic internet icon – the Hamburger Menu – in honour of its inventor, Norm Cox.

In the 1980s, Norm Cox changed the Internet forever by simplifying the drop down menu on websites to create what is now known as the 'Hamburger Menu'. McDonald’s is now inviting fans to celebrate Norm’s Hamburger Menu on his birthday, December 3rd, through a creative activation that will make Internet history.

To help with pulling off a birthday celebration for an Internet icon, McDonald’s is partnering with Reddit, the Internet’s front page. For the hamburger themed party, McDonald’s is dressing up Reddit’s beloved mascot Snoo, posting unique content, and taking over Reddit.com’s ‘Hamburger Menu’. Snoo will become the Snooburglar and wear McDonald’s iconic Hamburglar costume. Snooburglar is the perfect way for McDonald’s to incorporate Hamburglar’s burger-loving legacy and makes them the third brand that Reddit has ever allowed to ‘decorate’ Snoo.

On December 3rd, the adorable Snooburglar will show Redditors and burger fans alike how to get a hamburger through the Internet’s ‘Hamburger Menu’ for the first time ever. Content about how McDonald’s is changing up the hamburger menu in honour of Norm’s birthday will appear on Reddit and McDonald’s social media channels. Also, Redditors can ask the one and only Norm Cox questions in an 'Ask Me Anything' session hosted by McDonald’s at 2pm (CT) on December 3rd.

McDonald’s is also celebrating Norm by making even more internet history and letting you get a burger through a Hamburger Menu. For one day only, fans can redeem deals on the McDonald’s app by clicking on the Hamburger Menu featured on the mobile versions of Reddit.com and McDonalds.com. Lastly, McDonald’s is updating the ‘Hamburger Menu’ icon to resemble a delicious McDonald’s burger.

McDonald’s 'Hamburger Menu Takeover' activation was created by We Are Unlimited and developed in partnership with Reddit and Golin.
