    Mac Tonight made it cool to take your wife/girlfriend/date out to McDonald's for dinner and not look like a total deadbeat.

    I had a nightmare last night(which happened many times since this commercial was aired). It happened just after i watched the 3D mac tonight commercial , so i fell asleep after the commercial. And Mac Tonight chased me in my dream and he had a truck with a machine gun and he held a granade. Good thing i had a weapon in my dream and killed him. But i no longer watch the 3D commercial again! I only saw the 3D commercial, not dis one since i wuz born in the 90's. So i didn't see much of this moonhead until in 2007.

    This is my favorite McDonalds character. We are big McDonald collectors. I even have one of these costumes. From the restaurants. OH YEAH!

    Great ad, although apparently Dodd Darin--son of Bobby Darin, artist of the original tune "Mack The Knife", from which this ad derives--wasn't too thrilled with it...

    Mac Tonight was also recently in a McDonald's ad in Singapore. Albeit that he was CGI and not a puppet like in this ad.

    That guy looks a lot like it a mascot for a bar.

    Commercials used to be so cool back then! Nowadays, you just point and click a mouse and voila--commercial! They used to have to work hard to make those things--they went all the way into space and got the moon to sing! Now that is cool!

    I remember having some of thoes Happy Meals of Mac Tonight. He is somewhat creepy looking though. Whatever happen to him?

    I love the Mac Tonight ads -- sort of a McDonalds character for grownups.
    shiroihikari Posted 10 years 8 months ago
    I vaguely remember being creeped out by this guy when I was really little.

    Mac Tonight - Best McDonald's character ever.
    ChowTimer Posted 10 years 10 months ago
    This guy is creepy but the quality of this video is pretty good considering its from the 1980s.

    I had a Mac Toy, too, and I thought it was pretty cool back then, now he just looks sorta scary.

    Who considers Mcdonald's as Dinner, or food moreless. I couldn't agree with you more Gravel. Still a classic' commercial though

    Oh, that MOON! I miss that moon!
    robmon300 Posted 11 years 2 months ago
    look like he came out of a dream plus mcdonalds was on top of the world very scary dude very scary.

    That commercial brings back a lot of memories of being a McDonald's person. It had a moon guy singing "Mac To-nite" which was a parody of "Mack the Knife" by Bobby Darin. I used to have a race car with a moon face on it when I was a kid in my Puerto Rico years.

    Sure beats the ads that McDonald's is running now.
    Phantasmagoria_3D Posted 11 years 4 months ago
    Oh one more thing, that song is catchy! I like how it has that classic Frank Sinatra feeling to it!
    Phantasmagoria_3D Posted 11 years 4 months ago
    btw, whoever submitted this, if possible please submit more of these mac commercials! they kick a$$!
    Phantasmagoria_3D Posted 11 years 4 months ago
    YES!!! I LOVED THIS!!!! EVEN BETTER THAN THAT OTHER 'MAC TONIGHT' COMMERCIAL THAT WAS AIRED HERE RECENTLY! (WHICH DIDN'T HAVE VERY GOOD QUALITY, UNFORTUNATELY)I REMEMBER SEEING THE MAC MASCOT ON TELEVISION QUITE A FAIR AMOUNT OF TIMES AS A KID AND ALWAYS THOUGHT THAT HE WAS COOL! WHY OH WHY DID MCDONALD'S STOP SHOWING HIM IN THEIR ADS?! HE WAS THE BEST!!!!
