Marketers at McDonald's Germany think of us as cappuccino cupcakes



I spotted this doozy at Eater National. As they report, "McDonald’s Germany has just introduced cupcakes inspired by four different neighborhoods in New York City. Each ad features a Manhattanite from each 'hood explaining why the cupcake is characteristic of where they live."

And Eater used Google translator to translate the ads... here's the East Village representative: "Here come from the most famous artists in New York. And here in dozens of tourists looking for new art galleries. I now play Andy Warhol once and tell everything what I like to art. This cappuccino cup cake = for example: all great art."


McDonald's in Germany is here.

Did that cupcake give the model crabs? What's going on here?

Ha! True! There is a little something pervy-looking about him...As if he's going to try to get an upskirt shot on the subway his his iPhone...

I think he's making an obscene gesture at the double-decked red bus full of German tourists that's tooling up First Avenue.

Er, did I miss something here? What art galleries clogging the East Village is this dweeb "playing at being Andy Warhol" talking about? Oh, wait, is this ad from 1984?!? 99 Red Balloons, cappucino cupcakes - yeah, we can always trust the Krauts for surreal amusement.

Yeah, I see that guy walking around the neighborhood all the time.
I kick the crap out of him while he yells "das goot!" "das goot!"
