YouTube: McDonalds Adverts In Japan

September 30th, 2008 by Richy B. Leave a reply »

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…

This means that, despite my best intentions, it may no longer be accurate.

This blog holds over 12 years of archived content - during that time, I may have changed my opinion of something, technology will have advanced (and old "best standards" may no longer be the case), my technology "know how" has improved etc etc - it would probably take me a considerable amount of time to update all the archival entries: and defeat the point of keeping them anyway.

Please take these posts for what they are: a brief look into my past, my history, my journey and "caveat emptor".

    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:
