Clever McDonalds Marketing

I found this fascinating the other day. I got something in the mail which I ended up showing my my cousin over at Chill Yo Islam Yo. He wrote up a good piece on it and I’ll quote a little below with the picture of the mailing:

When I met Shaykh Hamza Yusuf at the ISNA convention this year, I told him maybe if McDonald’s and Burger King started serving Halal across the states, more Muslims would start eating it, more halal means less haraam. He said “it’s good it’s not halal, it’s bad for your health anyways, you shouldn’t be eating it regardless”., Chill Yo Islam Yo, Jul 2009

You should read the whole article.

“Taste zyada, price kum” means ” More tasteful, less pricey”

Get Youth-enized!

As Duke is getting beaten by double digits right now, I need something to look away from the tv. [56-43 ‘Nova with 7:40 to go]

Before I get to that Direct TV commercial, I just want to embed this McDonalds commercial about their fish fillet. I know my brother hates this every time this comes on but the rest of my family cracks up and I’m gonna try to make it into a ringtone or an alarm.

So I’m not really a big fan of these Direct TV commercials but this one is pretty twisted and funny in its own way.
