New Zealand – As Explained by McDonald’s


As I sat down at the food court today (with my Subway sandwich, ironically enough), I noticed this tray liner at the next table. I find it to be a smart marketing strategy, as A) the rhymes are catchy, and B) I now feel the urge to try this Kiwiburger while I’m here, just for the experience of it.

Update: Suzie informed me there was a jingle for this ad, and sure enough, here it is:

      Funny you should ask. Suzie and I went there today to try Kiwiburgers (she’d never had one!) and … it was pretty much your basic McDonald’s food. But I can say I’ve tried it!

    How funny – all a part of localizing McD’s marketing.

      Yep! I remember them doing a similar marketing campaign for Washington State – saying where exactly the potatoes, veggies, beef, etc. came from. Guess it works!

    Yup it’s a good summary of us 🙂 I LOOOVE kiwi burgers btw gotta have beetroot to be a kiwiburger

      Beetroots on my burger is definitely something that’s going to take a while for me to get used to! Now the kumara fries at Burger Fuel, on the other hand … those I got used to very quickly.
