Friday Fluff: The Original Ronald McDonald

This one’s a rarity: The very first McDonald’s commercial featuring none other than the world’s favorite junk food pushing clown. Brand-wise, it’s interesting to see the evolution (or de-evolution depending on your perspective) of this iconic image. It’s good for a laugh too.

Shout out to Vicky for the clip!

Food, Deconstructed

Synchronicity is an ideal term to describe the chance of stumbling upon these parallel artistic finds this morning. Above we have one of a series titled “Fast Food” by Dale Edwin Murray. Below, represents artist David Schwen’s “Type Sandwiches” collection, whose motto is simply: Make Something Cool Everyday. From what we can see, they’ve both got a handle on that concept.

Fueled by his passion for skateboarding, artist Haroshi uses them as a medium for his 3 dimensional creations. We’ve featured one of our faves, a little something called “Screaming My Hand.”

Coca-Cola Says “Give It Back!”

The reigning champion of the cola wars has just widened the gap. The Coca-Cola company’s “Give It Back” racks are an industry first. Not only are they asking U.S. retailers to return their shelving, but they intend to develop 100% recyclable racks for display of all Coca-Cola products:

“Coca-Cola recovered 400 million pounds of cans and bottles in the U.S. in 2010, yet we want to do more,” said Gary Wygant, Vice President, Business Development, Coca-Cola Recycling. “By creating a 100 percent recyclable merchandise display rack, Coca-Cola is asking grocery and convenience stores to join our sustainability efforts by returning or recycling our racks, just like we ask consumers to return or recycle our product packaging.”

If only this change of heart could translate into a healthier product for consumption…
