McDonald’s Big Mac with a side of synth and lasers.

Not since Big Mac Tonight (who remembers that guy?) do I recall being this goddamn excited about a McDonald’s commercial. Just watch it and you’ll see what I mean:

I saw this little slice of throwback awesomeness last night during the AFC Championship game and kept hoping it’d pop up again because it blew my friggin’ mind. It’s like the fast food version of the early 80′s HBO intro, except not quite as amazing.

That’s pretty weird, right? I mean, when’s the last time you saw a commercial you wanted to immediately watch again? I fully support this abstract, artsy direction McDonald’s seems to be going in lately with their Big Mac commercials (see also this one and this one). I’m on a diet right now which means AIN’T NOBODY GOT TIME FOR BIG MAC ATTACKS, but I definitely do have time to stop and share my appreciation for totally rad, 80s-tastic commercials like this one.
