  30. tran thu ha tai chinh

    I love it so much
    It is really interesting and attractive

  31. Trần Thị Thu Hường-AOF

    It’s really wise to use advertising billboads in puplic places.They will attract more new customers.For example,when you wait for a bus at the bus top,you can look at the beautiful pictures on advertising McDonald,image a delicious meal and maybe you will want to try it immediately.I also appreciate McDonald’s Free Coffe Hourglass.It is given away free for a two week period in an effort to promote its brand.In my opinion, the way is really practical and effective.And others campaigns is also creative and attractive.All makes the success of McDonald.

  32. Pingpong

    Wow!They are very creative and make people fell hungry and want try on McDonald’products at once.And why Vietnamese can’t think excellent ideals like these?May be this will be the truth in the future(because that time I will graduate from university and may be I will the first person to do this):D

  48. Doug Kessler

    Very creative, but outdoor advertising is visual spam.
    It ruins our cities and towns – and it’s the only form of advertising we can’t opt out of.

    I’m pro marketing and advertising (it’s my business too).

    But outdoor should be illegal.
    Sao Paolo banned it — and the population loves it.

    As the world’s largest outdoor advertiser, McDonald’s is the biggest perpetrator. Love the burgers. Hate the billboards.

  49. kejan

    they are soooooooooo cool fp

  50. someone

    these are actually really creative and cool in each of their own ways. I especially loved the nice try mom one. it was creative and clever
