BLF Celebrates Ronald McDonald’s 50th

To Serve Man The Billboard Liberation Front yesterday tweaked a San Francisco billboard to celebrate McDonald’s 50th Birthday. The modifications were some of the most extensive ever undertaken, including “the world’s first animatronic billboard alteration: a life-sized figure of Ronald McDonald feeding a corpulent child his daily dose of Big Macs.”

Construction photos here. A good one of the San Francisco Fire Department removing the corpulent child from his perch. Not sure how I get how the alien connects to the overall theme, but it appears that he too is growing a McFlurry waistline.

  1. Oh. Man. That is brilliant. And makes the BLF alteration come alive. I wonder how many people who saw the alteration got the reference / made the connection.

    Haven’t seen Twilight Zone for 20 years — wonder if they can be rented.

  2. “…and old episode.”

    The extra “d” is for extra “dumbass.”

    I hate when I make idiot typos.

    And to answer the question, “I wonder how many people who saw the alteration got the reference / made the connection,” I can reply “At least one.” :)

    But then, my brain is a cobweb-laden attic filled with useless trivia. Anyone know where my car keys might be?
