Times of your life.

McDonald's: “Timeless” - 30s

Retro production design and a helping of Glenn Medieros makes this a worthy companion piece to 'A History of Big Macs' from 2018. The burger in question is a Quarter Pounder with Cheese (or a Royale with Cheese, if you're French), and McDonald's are once again in a nostalgic mood about their menu.

Scored by Medieros's 'Nothing's Gonna Change My Love for You', the ad depicts one customer's love for the burger through thick and thin - or mullets and keffiyehs. The attention to period detail pays off, although there is potentially a risk of the brand overplaying the nostalgia card at this stage.
