McDonalds commercial in Canada

Just heard that McDonalds is running a commercial in Canada in support of team Canada and when they cut to a hockey crowd, it's one of the Caniacs in the RBC... I have to see this, anyone got a link?

i think you mean your other left

pretty sneaky of them though to put the canes fans in there like that... never noticed it before. i can see that they wanted a crowd full of red and white to make it look like a pro-canada crowd... but i don't see why they didn't take footage from the 02 games in salt lake city or one of numerous world junior hockey championships...

let's hope no one else from canada notices that, or mcdonald's will have some explainin to do!

Well, we all know those Canadians can't fill their building for a game like hockey--it's just not a traditional market up there. They had to dress up the passionate Canes fans to make it look like Canada actually supports hockey. Pathetic

For some reason Firefox won't show any videos at all on the McDonalds website there - have they pulled them or am I missing a plugin or something?

Still not working here, DC - it can't find anything to open it with - odd because I know I have Flash Player.

I had the same problem, but disabling ******* worked.

Oh, I forgot that that term is censored due to hf boards selling sponsorships. Disable the extension with the stop sign and ABP initials.

That got it! Wow - that's pretty blatant.

But but...that couldn't be Hurricanes fans in the RBC Center. Everybody knows that they have to give away tickets to get anyone to give up watching the tractor pull to go watch one of those hookey games.

Pfft! Everyone in traditional markets knows that the Canes add in digital images of fans and pumps up the sound system to make it look like there are more fans in the stands. There's really just five people there, and they're all fans of the other team...



Thanks for the quick fix to view it on Firefox, btw. Awesome!
