'Old MacDonald' Rhyme Gets Twisted in Taco Bell's Latest McDonald's Dig

Production Company
Los Angeles, USA
Deutsch LA continues the brand's breakfast war with rhythmic spot

Taco Bell and Deutsch LA have launched the latest ad in their ongoing quest to take a portion of the breakfast market from McDonalds. Ten days ago, Taco Bell released a series of "Ronald McDonald" commercials in which 25 different real-life Ronald McDonalds endorsed Taco Bell's new breakfast menu. The chain's newest TV spot, which is set to launch across the U.S. today, escalates the "breakfast war" with McDonald's by using the popular song 'Old McDonald Had a Farm' to sell new menu items like the Waffle Taco and AM Crunchwrap.
