McDonald's Brings Exotic Overseas Menu Items to the U.S. of A.

Time to burn that passport!

Why bother traveling abroad to experience different cultures and cuisines when you can stay right here in Trump's America and order from McDonald's Worldwide Favorites Menu? 

Srsly, it's pricey and time consuming to visit Spain or the Netherlands just for a taste of the Grand McExtreme Bacon Burger or the Stroopwafel McFlurry. And the electrical outlets in those places are absotively wack! 

Now, you can just hit a participating stateside Mickey D's and feed your Yankee Doodle face. These commercials from We Are Unlimited break it down. In English! 

Worldwide Favorites: Grand McExtreme Bacon Burger | McDonald's
Worldwide Favorites: Stroopwafel McFlurry | McDonald's

Sure, they actually made the ads on location in Europe. They're agency people. What did you expect? 

Campaign support includes content on McD's dedicated billboard in Times Square. (That's in NYC, which is part of the USA. Barely.) 

When you get tired of playing the Ugly 'Murican, check out the immersive VR experience on the McDonald's app. Created with Sapient and UNLTD, it lets users explore the origin countries of their worldwide faves, unlock special Spotify playlists (though not this one), and place mobile orders. 

Still hungry? Here's a Snapchat lens that takes you on a virtual world tour and fills your glasses with the flags of nations that used to be our allies.
