    I don't have a copy of it, but I still remember the lyrics:

    "When the Clock strikes,
    Half past mid-day,
    Time to head for Goooooolden Aaaaarch,
    It's a good time,
    For the great taste (dinner)
    At McDonalds, It's Mac Tonight
    (Come on make it Mac tonight!!!)

      I barely remember this commercials for McD's, and liking it.... :)

      That moon man with the shades singing the blues
      playing the piano high above McDonalds!!!

      I sort of thought he was supposed to be Ray Charles!!

      His shades reminded me of Ray Charles!!

      I think the song was "Mac The Knife"..

      it was also song by Canadian Dancer, singer, actor Jeff Hyslop!!!

      But Jeff Hyslop version was not related to McDonalds- but a broadway show....same music-- sort of different lyrics!!

          It's actually supposed to be a rendition of "Mack the Knife" as done by Bobby Darin

            I have one of these commercials. A kid is doing his homework when Mac shows up and leaves a cheeseburger on the windowsill. Hopefully I can upload it this week.

                  "Study break" is already uploaded, but it's from a camera pointing at a TV screen. I'll capture it direct from VHS plus whatever relse might be interesting. (It's the 1988 American Music Awards with a tribute to Michael Jackson!)

                    Thanks, I hate cams but I thought it would be better than nothing. I would love to have a better coppy.

                        YouTube has a great MacTonight commercial, I think its the original:
                        http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bucLVkXXnBM

                        here is a link to Doug Jones' website (he was the guy inside the suit!)

                        there are videos there you can save to your harddrive.

                          This is the most frightening blast from the past I've stumbled on here at retrojunk!

                                  Oh, yeah. That guy was cool. He should come back and replace that creepy clown as the new mascot.
