Video Explains How to Get McDonald's Big Mac For A Buck


Now here's something that will likely not amuse McDonald's. Rafi Kam of Oh Word and blogger Dallas Penn have created what, we think, has the potential to become a fairly successful viral video. The video explains how to get a Double Cheeseburger off the Dollar Menu and, with some special "have it your way" ordering, add Big Mac sauce, large-cut onions and a seeded bun (which don't cost extra) and transform the lowly one dollar double cheeseburger into a $3.39 Big Mac. And, with the addition of some fries, the whole thing becomes what the pair call the Ghetto Big Mac.

"stick it to the man"

really? who wins here...the customer? mcdonalds?

the best marketing creates a scenario wherein everyone a) wins or b) feels like they're winning.

This is so old it's new again, and it's about time someone copied the idea and put it on the web.

It may actually please McDonald's.

It seems like most people we've sent the clip to tell us afterwards how much they want a burger.

About a year ago, Mickey Dís asked hip-hop artists to pen lyrics for the Big Mac. Donít think this is what they had in mind.

this spot wasn't created for McD, we made it because we like eating fast food for cheap.

I'm about to unleash another Ghetto Big Mac viral video... as soon as I rip that scene from Eddie Murphy's Delirious wherein he talks about making burgers at home, with ground meat and white bread.

Because if you're going to put that much time into one burger, you might as well be making your own.
