Intellectuals are the WORST..

so lets drink our coffee at McDonalds!  

 

McD’s is launching a new anti-Starbucks ad campaign.. it goes something like this: “In the 30-second “Intellectuals” spot, a woman sitting in a leather chair, sipping coffee in front of a fireplace with piano music playing in the background, tells her friend about McDonald’s new lattes, and says, “Now we don’t have to listen to jazz all day long.” The commercial ends with a voice-over saying, ‘Try McDonald’s McCafe coffees. All the coffee. Hold the attitude.'”

I’m not the biggest fan of Starbucks (except for one special Starbucks), but I have to say McDonalds is being a total dick here.. and sounds a lot like the GOP right now, to be honest. 

Remember when Rudy Giuliani, suggested that the reason Obama was anti-Palin was that Wasilla, AK wasn’t “cosmopolitan” enough for him?  I forget.. Giuliani was the mayor of which American city?  Certainly not one known for CULTURE, right? 

Just wondering when being intellectual became synonymous with being a douchebag.  Jazz is superlame, let’s get happy meals.

    My Mickey D’s iced coffee in Lamar, CO, was pretty good. Pre-sweetened.
    But not quite as good as their cappuccino in Guatemala City.
    Starbucks is so fancy. Anti-American!

    coming up with the McCafe line was genius; McDonald’s must have a top notch marketing/product development team
