    Link: Behind the Scenes Of A McDonald`s Photo Shoot - How does McDonald`s make their burgers look thick, juicy, and delicious? They get nice buns the same way supermodels do.

    I like how McDonald`s has normalized such a distorted view on advertising that they feel it is ok to show this. "Oh yeah, of course our product looks nothing like the images you are bombarded with, why that would be crazy if they did. You are stupid to think you would get anything like what we advertise."

    sorry to break it to you unmercyfuldu, but wishing for truth in advertising is like wishing the tooth fairy was real.

    I am not necessarily saying I am wishing for truth in advertising. But the way McDonald`s has approached this is very hypocritical. They continue to advertise in a way that does not reflect the reality of their products and don`t try to had this fact but go about it as if it were benign. I am commenting on the fact that we have all reached this point of understanding. They are admitting that they believe you are stupid if you have the expectation of their food looking like the advertisements.

    You can have one that looks like it does on the advertisment. You just have to be willing to wait a few hours for them to put it together rather then less then a minute. It would be cold by then but it would be pretty!

    Company needs to pull customers with nice ads to stay in buisness and the workers inside need to produce them in a short time period. Thats buisness.

    People sure are spoilt brats if they are annoyed that spending £3 on some cheep and quick food, should also have a mitchell inn stars level of presentation.

    Watched a video on food prep for commercials, it`s pretty ridiculous. Grapes dipped in vegetable oil to make them shinier, clear marbles at the bottom of bowls of soup to push the solid contents to the top, glue in cereal because milk would make it soggy plus going through 10+ boxes to find the perfect flakes, etc.

    "Company needs to pull customers with nice ads to stay in buisness"

    How about businesses let their products speak for themselves. Informing consumers your product exists is one thing, lying about its quality is another. If you have a good product that if available and affordable, people will buy it. Lying about the quality of your product should not be normalized to business as usual. It is a battle for your money, why should you think it is a good idea to let those with huge advertising budgets lie and coerce you out of your hard earned money.

    It`s more about taste, at least for me. Most chefs will say though, that we eat with our eyes first, which probably has some truth to it.

    Eddie Murphy used to do a comedy skit about `Home burgers` that his mom made. Even thought they looked ugly, they tasted awesome, at least my mom`s did. :-)

    At this point why do they even care to present a product that actually represent what the customers are buying?

    Heck, I would go way out of the mainstream track and present people with true false advertising all the way up their bum.

    Oh, my... We`re being lied to by advertising? Can this be true?

    And as CrakrJak so correctly pointed out it`s all about the flavour. McDonald`s is garbage. I mean, when was the last time you went on a date and said "Hey, babe, let me take you to this great Scottish restaurant I know"?...

    Me and my family stopped eating at McDonald`s a while back.. Their food is absolutely unbearable. The last time we ate there I got my burger, had the normal grease all over the bun, the usual ketchup fingerprints and mustard smeared all over. The bun was obviously man-handled through the line because they were busy.

    Then there is of course the taste.. I couldn`t even finish it, it was so disgusting. Me and my wife both decided that would be our last visit. Shame because my kids love the play place there. That has been replaced by picnics at the park so I don`t think they mind.

    Kegomatix:
    You wouldn`t say "Me stopped eating at McDonalds..." so why do you say "Me and my family..."?
    I mention it only because you should set an example for your kids by not making them think that is the way people talk. Next time, say "My family and I did (whatever)," or "My wife and I did (something)." See how much better it sounds? You mark yourself in people`s eyes by how you speak and write.

    It`s worth noting that I am drunk. I see my obvious mistake, but honestly I do not give a damn. Impressing people over the internet is the least of my concerns. I`m all about using proper spelling and grammar but really? If it isn`t blatantly stupid then I am normally not bothered by it.

    "Would we stand for this in a car ad?"
    Since most of the car ads nowadays are computer renders I would have to give that an affirmative.

    I think he was talking about making the right impression on your kids, but it does matter to others too. You`re less likely to get a good job or make a positive impression on anyone if you use bad grammar.

    If it doesn`t matter to you, that`s fine. Just don`t expect much success in life.

    Well hey, at least in present times they have to use actually edible food as I`m pretty sure they made a law a while back requiring it. It used to be that nobody actually used real food, they`d just use fake inedible crap, but I`m pretty sure I recall hearing that it whatever they use absolutely has to be edible these days.

    This is a complete fabricated lie (redundant, I know). A not so clever marketing ploy. The food you see in the pictures are NOT EVER actual food, but rather a wax representation of the real thing.
