McDonald’s presumably expects to do pretty good business during a World Cup and its first truly global campaign, while not directly football-related, is clearly timed for it. There are even chaps in traditional Arab dress.

Supposedly TikTok friendly (brands should watch out with TikTok, social media has a habit of biting you these days.)
One of those campaigns where your first reaction is: is that it? But actually its artlessness is quite clever; it’s global (so that’s a language issue) and they’re obviously aiming for a kind of “Whassup” Budweiser effect.
