Last Call: McDonald’s Everything, All Day


The McDonald’s PR machine was hard at work today.

Huffington Post: Gail Simmons says her new book, Talking With My Mouth Full: My Life As A Professional Eater is about “going against what our elders told us to do when we were figuring out our lives”. Charming, eloquent, adorable and rebellious? As if we needed more reasons to love her.

Grub Street: A study has proven that Michelin Guide rated restaurants have much higher prices than those that don’t appear in the guide. In addition, the more Michelin stars a restaurant has received, the more expensive the meal. Thanks to this study, everyone now knows who to blame in the event of a sudden influx of foodie bank robbers.

Eater: Ever wonder why your McDonald’s burger looks different in the store than it does in advertisements? McDonald’s Candada posted a behind-the-scenes video detailing the process of styling burgers for photo shoots. Although, even with the meticulous preparation and Photoshop, there’s only so much that can be done with McDonald’s hamburger.

Telegraph: The UK McDonald’s chains are undergoing a makeover with Mad Men-inspired new uniforms. What’s next: three martini “Happy” meals?
