This is how McDonald’s ads are made

Two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions – on a sesame seed bun Never Looked So Delicious.

Ever wonder how McDonald’s makes a Big Mac look so mouth-watering in their advertisements?  It’s a long process that requires a whole team of chefs, photographers, and food stylists dedicated to making the food look as pretty as possible.  Take a look at the GIF below showing how graphic designer Lucas Rosa create’s a McDonalds digital ad step by step.  It’s amazing to see how much editing is involved in creating such a simple advertisement.

Also, check out this video which gives you a behind the scenes look at a McDonald’s photo shoot.

OMG what have they done? Burger King introduces “Mac and Cheetos” menu item

Seriously, Burger King…  What are you guys doing?  First, it was chicken fries, then it was hot dogs, now it’s “Mac and Cheetos.”  How about you try to focus on just making some bomb burgers?  I’m available for freelance consulting if you need me.

Anyways, this is actually going to be a new menu item from the fast food chain.  Mac and Cheetos are basically just mozzarella sticks with a twist.  They’ll be available sometime soon for $2.49 a 5-pack.

Yeah, this is real.  Burger King put a spa inside of a location they have in Finland.  Because what goes better with a whopper than a nice sweat?  The spa opened up in their Helsinki location and includes 15 seats in the sauna, a 48″ TV, a media lounge complete with a 55″ TV and PlayStation 4, and a shower room.

Seems crazy to me, but if I ever find myself in Finland, I’m going to have to check it out.  Take a closer look at the space:

McDonald’s is Testing a Southern Fried Chicken McGriddle

Chicken and waffles?  Pssh, how about chicken and pancakes?  That’s essentially what the new McGriddle combines.  Rather than their traditional options of sausage or bacon on the McGriddle, McDonald’s is testing out a chicken version of the popular breakfast sandwich.

The sandwich is currently going through a testing phase in Ohio, but if all goes well it could hit the full-time menu in the near future *fingers crossed*.  They’re playing around with a price point of $1.49-$2.
