Remember the ad where the goal was to sing the Big Mac sequence backwards? My brother and I worked on that until we got it right and I can still do it. My kids are slack-jawed when they hear it.
By the way, those Jet-Skis make my back hurt just watching!

    That's not a British commercial, it's an Australian one.

      It was about 1978 when I ordered my first Big Mac. I was a kid then living in a podunk town that was about 50 miles away from the nearest McDonald's. Since McDonald's was such a rare treat for me back then, I thought Big Macs were the best thing to eat on the planet. Today, I live in a much bigger town and I'll occasionally order a Big Mac and ask myself "what's so great about this s***t?" and wish I could get me some regional dishes from back home. The grass is always greener.....

          Always interesting to see differences in advertising taglines. In Britain, McDonald's says "We've Got It All - For You", while in the USA it was "We Do It All For You". Perhaps highlighting the differing expectations of British and US consumers.

            I thought Big Mac started in the 90's. (See, I'm not a big McDonalds fan)

              Great tv commercial for "Mcdonald's" with their own big mac sandwich from the late 70's!

                  I think the Ronald McDonald of the 70's and 80's is way better than the fraud today. Hamburglar,Mayor McCheese, Grimace, and the Captain guy...

                    Celeste, Thank God for the old days when McDonalds and anybody else that mattered was not "vegetarian friendly". We need to get back to the days when people ate meat and didn't apologize for it!!!

                          I was two so I don't remember too much about this ad. I do remember that my family didn't eat out very much back in those days because McDonald's wasn't exactly a vegetarian friendly fast food resturant like it is now.

                            What a load of sesame seeds on the buns of that Big Mac!
