    I just have a question: What happened to the Big Mac?

    I don't find the ads particularly offensive, just kinda off the mark and dumb. I guess there's a whole line of new McDonald's ads like this one. Scroll down in the article to the comments.

    I dont find this offensive per say, but I do think it is tasteless and would not post it if I had any say

    Duh. I get it now. She feels bad because she actually ate a Big Mac. I thought like McD's stopped making the Big Mac and 300 million people got all depressed about it.

    See, it reminded me of those "first world problems" memes and didn't get the relationship to depression. However, I am not a sufferer of depression so thought I might be missing something.

    I didn't laugh loudly at it but I don't think it's awful.

    I actually love it as a contrast to the usual McDonald's advertising. I can see why the company was unhappy wiith it, forget the idea of offending people, but all their ads are sunny and bright and pretend that eating McDonald's will make everybody feel happy and wonderful. I like the idea that it's a shameful thing to love a Big Mac, like a guilty pleasure. I don't eat McDonald's anymore, I gave up fast food years ago, but I will admit I find their french fries and McChicken sandwiches delicious. So I like the ad. And it's funny.

    I love Jim Gaffigan. The first time I ever watched his standup I literally fell off my couch laughing.
