OMG! Those are the Charlie Angel's dolls I mentioned in the other Bozo video! How weird. I had those and also got Kris (Cheryl Ladd) when they made one of her (her doll was in a green jumpsuit). I even have a photo of me getting the dolls that Christmas. I don't think they made dolls of the later Angels though.

That Burger King looks better than the current creepy one.

I remember those commercials for Charlie's Angels toys. You know when TV show is successful when toys and other products of that show are being produced and sold.

I've been looking for that Marching Mickey ad for years!!! Thanks for finding!

You said it the new 1 is creepy.

Both Burger Kings look creepy. Live or plastic. The Live guy even LOOKS plastic.

As for the question of which Gold was in that Burger King ad: Very likely Missy Gold, who was blonde. Future "Growing Pains" co-star Tracey Gold had dark hair. Incidentally, they're sisters, born one year apart. Unless they were both in this ad.

LMAO! What were they smoking when they thought of that Burger King commercial?

It was Missy Gold in the Burger King ad. Funny because I knew that the second I saw her. She wouldn't be known to a national audience until Benson's debut in 1979.

They made the plastic Burger King look like this one, I think.

"Anytime I hear that tune, I have to sing along...

McDonald's is our kind of place,
They feed you rattlesnakes,
They throw food in your face,
It's such a happy place!"

I remember most of it as follows...

McDonald's is your kind of place
??????
They throw pies in your face
They steal your parking place
McDonald's is your kind of place
Milkshakes taste just like slime
Hamburgers are greasy grime
French fries aren't worth a dime
McDonald's is your kind of place
It's such a wrecked-up place
McDonald's is your kind of place!

Spot produced at a time when McDonald's was a much smaller company, even the growth potentials had a great future.

The "You Deserve a Break Today" campaign certainly was a boost; this "Our Kind of Place" was the beginning of it, I suppose.

My guess of the present "I'm Lovin' It" was made at a time (c.2006) when McDonald's was still relevant but company-wise had slow growth, even it was getting business from the Super Size and Dollar Menus. McDonald's was simple, but by the late 1990's, ideas like the McLean and the Arch Deluxe were man-of-failures. Changes had to come and when the new synergies (including the McCafe) were introduced, so did the "I'm Lovin' It" thing, done at a time when most of America's economy was rolling and heavy consumer spending in the mid 2000's was present. Self-gratification was the hip thing at the time, and McD jumped on it.

Although they McCafe was popular and profitable, I think what happened was that McDonald's was on a constant remodeling kick and changes to the menu. Around 2006, many of the MCD's that were older were remodeled with elaborate decor. Within less than a decade, many were demolished and given new bare bones outside architecture with somewhat posher accommodations inside (i.e.: plush seats, stool-side seating, etc) and double drive thrus for efficiency. I think that constant remodeling pushed the cost of food up, along with inflation. Plus, other fast food restaurants were cutting deals in the form of coupons, something that McD are shy on.

And "Please Have Your Payment Ready" is nice, it's also a turnoff.

Other than reasons aside, I now think the "I'm Lovin' It" thing is becoming dated, along with "What Happens Here, Stays Here" was a few years ago.

Very cool commercial.

McNamara gets heckled by some fans just before the video cuts out.

I've dropped my McDonald's cup with one of those lids on it and all the liquid spilled all over the place. I call this False Advertising!!!!

So according to the sign, even back in 1967 there have been billions and billions served at Mcdonalds? The franchise had been around for what, a decade by then? Also, I really kind of dig the waiter's smile. Wish I can get that kind of smile when I go to a McD's today!

The jingle is sung to the tune of "Down by the Riverside".

It sure beats that lousy "I'm lovin' it" jingle we got now.
