Last week, Japan McDonald's debuted their Big America 2 campaign that featured four Hulk-fist sized, America-themed burgers. The four burgers, named Idaho, Manhattan, Miami, and Texas 2, clock in at more than 500 calories each, and range from nearly tasty-looking to mildly racist.
As for our state's burger, Hanna spoke with McDonald's spokeswoman Melissa Daly about the "Texas 2 burger," which features "flavors of the Lone Star State with spicy chili beans, bacon, fresh onions, cheese and a quarter-pound of beef, all on two layers of buns." Yeah, you heard her right, beans in the chili.
So, McDonald's, we'd like to throw a follow-up campaign out there. Below and after the jump, our art director Alexander Flores created some possible new burgers for what we'd propose to be named "Big America 3." Like Big America 2, the burgers are targeting American locales. Check this out McDonald's, we included the product pitch for you as well; you don't even have to get some Mad Man to write the campaign.
