Numbnuts or Nuggnuts?

OK.   We’re watching the NFL playoffs, and McDonalds strikes again.  The 30 second commercial about Nuggnuts runs.   Immediately my 50 something (male) sweetheart says, “Nuggnuts? Sounds like Numbnuts”.  He’s offended.   I go to the web site.

Home page.  A grandmother, probably her way-too-beautiful-to-be-the-mom daughter and two kids, all wearing Mc-Ugly Christmas Sweaters and sporting what I assume to be reindeer antlers.  They each hold Nuggnuts as if they’re posing for a family portrait. The son is staring off into space, probably comatose from too many French fries.

Then, click on a link like the Nuggnut Hall of Fame, and here it is, an Eskimo-like turd that changes color from frosty white to tan as the page loads.   Oooooh, yummy!   I love to see my tender, juicy all-white meat frozen solid.  And wholesome too, 12 fat grams and 190 calories in 4 of those fried turds.   Target audience for this campaign?   Numbnuts.

    The worst visual on TV (by far) is the Chicken Nugget wedding cake during one of those Numbnut McDonald ads. So gross!

  2. adchick Says:

    Indeed….like a giant fried turd cake. What kind of people were getting married, anyway!??

  3. Trans Fat Says:

    I would have to agree with FC that commercial is pretty disgusting. And the guys playing poker, who would want to touch or even eat that?
