Re: Wow Mcdonalds wow

that totally makes sense - they're just catering to a specific group of riders who spend most of the money on the downpayment, then rest of it on the helmet and usually eat McDonalds 1 dollar menu stuff, ghetto squids that is.

How ironic, the guy from LA talking about ghetto squids. Way to stereotype, it makes the rest of us look like such outstanding citizens.


I don't see the problem with it, it's not like they are showing a bunch of assholes blocking up a 4 lane highway. It is in a controlled environment, where stunting should be taking place. Nothing wrong with that.

Re: Wow Mcdonalds wow



the term squids and frowned upon activity is when it happens on public roads where you no longer care for anyones safety along with your own...

think of it this way...you're now married and on your way home from the hospital with your new born...

some arrogant squid pulls out in front of you on the highway along with his buddies and they all pull up wheelies and endos now some asshat eats it and looses it and goes down and now you behind him have to slam on the breaks cause you obviously don't want to run them over and not to say something will happen to your new born but you wouldn't be the slightest bit happy that the could've been doing that dumb shit on a closed street or park where you wont involve innocent people in your recklessness....


common sense isn't so common anymore

Re: Wow Mcdonalds wow

Looks like Jason Britton's stunt team......I guess at least they're doing it in a parking lot outside a garage and not down the highway, not that that point will stand out much.

Re: Wow Mcdonalds wow

The emphasis of the commercial is on McDonalds, not motorcycles. We're just a small percentage of the public who's interest gets sparked when we see a bike lol

Re: Wow Mcdonalds wow

At least they didn't show motorcycle racers......I guess the implication is that stunters eat like shit

No talent eh-hole squid, who stunts in traffic wearing flippie-floppies, board shorts and sunglasses when he is not parked at Tim Horton's representing his single-member squid bike club. Also a Fuckwad, a Jizz Receptacle and a Twat Waffle.

Their food is like an instant laxative.

I also did when I saw the commercial. Mostly because of the chick wearing a fucking vest over a tank top.

It really is. I don't know what about it makes me ... I stopped eating fast food years ago but on occasion (like once every few months) I'll cave into the convenience. Immediately afterwards, I'm guaranteed to have bowel movements. It's terribly unfortunate that the poor & uneducated are the vast majority of McD's target demographic...

well, I live in LA now, not in the best part of it for now, and I'm not from there, and you probably think that most of CA is like LA, which is not true. I'd say that these people in the ad do resemble some of the squids I see sometimes. Funny thing is that the stereotype I described in my previous post is certainly not something I came up with, it's around all of sportbike and many motorcycle forums - a person who buys a new bike with no prior training and sufficient funds, and gets a helmet as the only piece of a gear for what is left. Don't even want to go into the statistics, which actually tells that most of sportbike buyers are relatively young guys with somewhat low income.
Another point, I never said there's something wrong with it. McDonalds does it's thing, and that is, earning money - nothing wrong with that. they just found their target group, and tailored their advertisement to their tastes, that's it. And yeah, that's way better than a bunch of douches closing the freeway in West Covina, it's a no-no
and I wouldn't make a big deal out of this commercial, and my previous comment was only partially serious, and I hope yours is too. hope it's not because of one of the lane-splitting threads on here.

Yup ,
There are small portions of Los Angeles that are ghetto. Los Angeles county is huge. Stay outta Compton, watts, la 1 and 2 , south central, la 22 and 23 , you'll be good.

Nope, not at all serious. I know not all of Cali is like LA, I just know LA is one of the shittiest/touristy places.

+1

I'm not into the stunting thing but at least it was in a lot . And to those that this really bothered have you complained to Micky D's ? Other wise quit your bitching . As they say if your not part of the solution then your part of the problem .
