Because boxes are scary.

Subby gonna shiat if he ever sees a spider... or a dog... or, well anything.. if THAT is scary.

But, as for that stupid f'n box. It is dumb as hell. WTF every happened to the classic, well-known characters?!? Grimace, the Fry Guys, HAMBURGLAR!!!!!! Mayor Cheese or MacCHeese or whatever... and I remember the "cop" burger 'thing' ?? This box seriously stupid looking...  almost as lame as the "King" dancing around like a meth head, crack addict that got a hold of some drano-cut crap.

/Bet in popularity, Hamburglar would win over Ronald McDonald... even though you never see him anymore. lol

Compared to the previous clown mascot? Yeah, this is way worse.  It may not be outright scary, but it sure doesn't put me at ease.

Still, it may get kids to not eat too much McDonald's, so there's that.

Bring back the syrofoam boxes! That waxy cardboard shiat takes all the flavor out of the burgers.

I don't like the idea of a box that carries food to be living. It's like reaching into a creature's stomach for food.

I look at that and see Black Hole Sun music video.

"Happy" is an animated Happy Meal box who was first introduced in 2009 in France, a nation well-versed in the existential angst that its name so ironically conveys.

It looks like you're considering eating a hamburger. Would you like to know more?

Yeah, down here in Guatemala, I've seen this weirdo on Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon for years already. I'm surprised it took them this long to bring it north of the border, considering how irrelevant the Happy Meal is getting.

Just pray they don't use the really high-pitched laughter that they've been using in Latin American commercials. It's not really the looks, but that incessant laughter that make you want to smother it between two flaming Filet-o-Fish sandwiches.

Sadly, this clown is less scary than most normal clowns.

It's almost, ALMOST, as if McDonald'sTM doesn't really care about health, and are trying to pursue an agenda of maintaining the profitable status quo while simultaneously publicly pursuing the agenda of a healthy, but costly, new business model. Almost.

Makes sense. No real long-term planning, put up a facade while maximizing profits before fast food starts getting massively taxed. Should buy some nice waterfront property for the right people.

If that were the case, they sure as shiat wouldn't be using that box to sell food. farking thing looks like it's about to eat some kid's face off. Must've been made by the same guy who made the Chuckie doll.

umm... I'm almost sure that the human mouth neither contains that many teeth, nor does it, unaided, have the capability of revealing them, (and I can see right to the wisdoms ffs), all at the same time.

Even if it was possible, that's not a smile... That's a farking warning growl defence grimace.

(it's also effed up that the teeth are at least 6 shades whiter than her white kitchen units)

I don't understand why clowns exist.  Can anyone explain that to me?  They don't scare me, but even I think they're generally creepy.  I've never seen a clown I enjoyed.  I've never known anyone who enjoyed clowns.  I've never met anyone who enjoyed them.  I've never heard of anyone who enjoyed them.

The Fizbo episodes of Modern Family are awesome, but other than Eric Stonestreet, I can't think of any other clown I have enjoyed.

I can appreciate a good mime. They tend to be quiet, and their makeup is far less likely to disguise their intent. I still have fond memories of the one I saw on Chicago's Navy Pier years ago. He was mocking people, following them, imitating their walks. There was one woman in particular, high heels, designer handbag, just sashaying by... She got mime trolled and it was perfect.

So I guess technically I have enjoyed clowns. Just not loud, in-your-face slapstick clowns. Those guys are creepy.
