McDonald's launches global campaign featuring Justin Timberlake in an attempt to target kids and teens. Forget the "Smile" campaign, it's "I'm lovin' it" now. (NYT account required)

I'm terribly amused that the infrequent NYT-online drop-cap bug (every so often the first character actually goes missing, and the drop cap is applied to the second character of the first word) means this article begins:

Ill consumers....

Fuck McDonald's. They sell garbage, which would be excusable if it didn't taste like Anal crush.

I would like to note that:

1) Justin Timberlake's Solo Album is possibly one of the best Pop Albums in recent memory, almost as good as the best of the Michael Jackson collection.

2) For me sometimes, nothing hits the spot like a Quarter Pounder with Cheese.

3) Grimace is a Giant Taste Bud. Think about that.

With regard to 2) all I can say is, Stan, you've gotta get out of Atlanta. Move to somewhere where they make hamburgers. Try one. You'll be amazed.

I'm amazed that the NYT saw fit to devote a two page article on the new McDonald's advertising jingle. Was it a slow news day or something?

[Grimace] used to be evil and have six arms

Durga's deformed brother, mad at being chained in the basement with a television ala Sloth and fed stale chipatis? Good thing he got surgery and behavior meds. He's sweet now.

I'd say the Justin Timberlake-McDonald's marriage is a good one. They both have exactly the same sort of image - popular, but not cool.
