Ronald McDonald Gets A Fancy McMakeover

Ronald McDonald was (generally) cute in cartoon form, (often) downright creepy in real life, and (arguably) never seemed like an appropriate spokesperson for a fattening burger chain like McDonalds, especially when he was standing next to the more likely candidate- his morbidly obese pal Grimace.

Clowns brought the festive feel to burger chains back in the day, but nowadays people seem a bit less enthusiastic about buying fast food from a burger shill in clown white, so McDonalds has decided to revamp Ronald's look by dressing him up in a mcfancy new blazer and striped mcshirt.

His new wardrobe was designed by Tony Award-winning theatrical designer Ann Hould-Ward, and the masterminds behind this mcmakeover want Ronald to play a bigger role in their new social media campaign "fun makes great things happen", yet somehow Ronald looks like less fun to me now.

Oh, yeah. That new outfit is sooo much better. uh huh IMO, they should drop the clown altogether. Find a new mascot if they even really need one at all.
