YouTube: McDonalds Adverts In Japan

Last updated on March 10, 2009

A few years ago, I went to Japan (flying Lufthansa, booked via Expedia) and a couple of days I went into the McDonalds there and it was quite different. First of all: you put your money in a tray and the cashier picked it up from the tray, secondly they allowed smoking inside and thirdly they had recycling bins for paper, plastic cups and ‘undrunk drinks/ice’ (along with an “other”).

However, I didn’t see any of the following adverts whilst I was there – which was a shame… If only McD’s ran these ads here…

  1. Thanks for the linkthrough Richy. I lived in Japan for a couple of years, but these are definitely my favourite McDonalds ads out of that time, except maybe the ones with Ebi-chan. Ebi-chan is a spokesmodel-type , and the Japanese word for shrimp is also Ebi (although written differently) so they got her to promote their fried shrimp burgers:
