McDonald’s promotes America-themed menu

McDonald’s is launching a month-long US-themed advertising campaign to support its annual ‘Great Tastes of America’ menu promotion.


The TV spot, which kicks off tonight (1 May) on ITV1, shows the inhabitants of a “quintessentially British” town celebrating as a different burger launches in their local restaurant.

The campaign, created by Leo Burnett, will also include press activity.
