Anything is 'collectible'.  I'll just put it over here with my Beanie Babies and my Earnhardt "Racin' to Heaven"plate.  I might have to throw out my novelty whiskey decanter to make room...

With all these McDonald's rush stories from the past couple of years, I just have to hand it to their marketing department.  You people are just nailing it.  Corporate just needs to make it rain promotions and bonuses on all of you.

I wouldn't go there for any toy, but if they released the old "transformers" happy meal toys from the 80s... the fries, nuggets that turned into bots and sold separately, I would probably buy a set and put them on my desk.

The more you buy, the less they're worth, folks. Go nuts.

That's the problem with "collectibles" and "limited edition" things - they're usually neither. And when you're done, you've just handed a bunch of money over to the folks who saddled with you with made-for-pennies geegaws that you now have to somehow keep pristine - and out-keep all the other folks - if you want even a chance of recouping your loss.

I recently found my "the birds" Barbie in my parents attic and stole it back from them. I regret not getting the Grace Kelly rear window one too.

I hate that media literacy, and it's parent -- critical thinking, are basically semi-rare superpowers in this culture.

My ex found it annoying. She is smart enough to understand it when I pointed it out, but dumb enough that it bothered her, and took it as me being negative.

It's fine that everything is engineered to manipulate you. . . as long as you are aware of the manipulation and maintain your own autonomy in the face of it.

Advertising absolutely still works on me but only in the way where I was already a prime candidate for the product. My go-to example is the Aerosmith Dodge ads when the first true four-door Ram pickups were offered.

I was already a Dodge kid, and I'd been waiting for someone to put out a true four-door. Within a month of seeing the ad I bought one. But a rocking song and images of it tearing across the desert didn't convince me to buy. It was the only true four door truck at the time and I still test-drove the lesser options on the chance there was better to be had.

If I was jamming on the toys in those Happy Meals the advertising would absolutely work.

If they released a new line of Astrosniks then I'd hop on this. Unlike 99.9% of fast food toys from my childhood, those I actually still have.

Some other decent ones I remember were the plastic-but-full-sized GoBots from Wendy's (many of which are still in the wild since they were more durable than the diecast Tonka originals) and the Mr. Men figurines from Arby's.

One, in spite of Subby's headline, its not McDonald's but a hand full of employees complaining on social media that seem to want you to stop.
Two, why do these employees even care?  I worked McDonalds as a teenager and saw my fair share of promotions come and go and the job sucked regardless.  No one promotion seemed to add to my misery and working at a McDonalds was near constant misery.

One year...for Halloween. I went as 'gas station dude' from the "Birds"

I had a basic workman's jump suit...name tag.
But had a baseball cap gimmiked out with little thin wires that on which were hung little feathered birds (Xmas tree type 60's birds)...it made sort of a fountain of birds 2 to 3 feet around my head.
And here's the thing.....when I walked and bobbed my head the birds would follow...and if I crouched they'd swoop down. (well, they were wired to my cap)
Great fun...as I could run about waving my hand and these birds would around my head.

No they weren't.  They are being told to handle the rush of some special advertising and the most special gluttony of people like you, who run down to McDonalds like the perfectly groomed consumers that they are to take advantage of this. Mickey Ds wants  you  to show off how extraordinarily well you can consume, with the help of the corporations.  And you're all pretty proud of it too--the infantilization of America has been  an outstanding success.  And you did it all by ---no, I just farking said it--you didn't do ANY of it by yourself.  Except get fat.

Many workers are taking to Reddit to post pictures of extraordinary orders coming through either via the app, or in drive thrus. This monster order from a drive thru, for instance, involved eight Big Macs and 20 chicken nuggets, along with ten portions of fries, ten drinks, etc, and all of them in adult Happy Meal boxes. With a 50% off coupon. For just one customer in the long line, and according to what we've seen, this is non-stop. One staffer reported their manager called back an order for 43 fries at once.

Don't cry.  McDonalds is still there, and for people just like you, they and other bloated corporations will be offering you even more impulse purchases in the future.  As long as you're buying, they're selling instant gratification, and god knows we need that now more than ever.  The planet is burning down, haven't you heard?

Especially if you don't have to do any of the actual labor involved in any of this.  You're a player, not a server.  Of course you're a pain in the ass.  It's your heritage.

Most people don't go to this much trouble to potentially make $20 on e-bay years down the line. The point is that the toys look cool and people get hipster cred by having them decorate their home or office. This is huge for making McDonalds popular among 20 and 30-somethings.

You'd think McDonalds would have learned from the Szechuan sauce fiasco - if you make something appealing to adults you'd better be prepared for an avalanche of demand, because like the article said the demand isn't being moderated by parents having to agree to buy stuff for their kids. If an adult wants something he gets it that week.

Yep. A lot of thought and science has gone in to perfecting advertising and the only (partial) counter to it is being aware of the manipulation.

For my part I tend allow the manipulation when consuming fiction since I love getting lost in stories, but my guard is up around advertising and politics. I'll still notice manipulation in stories, but I've learned not to talk about it with people who don't appreciate analysis of such things. Some people like to look at the lines of the car and appreciate the pretty. Others appreciate the math that dictates the aerodynamics, and the decades of design history behind those lines. Still others see the massive waste of resources a car represents.

Being a human is an exercise in managing hypocrisy, because there is no way to live as a modern human without being a hypocrite about something.

I consider myself a kind, considerate, and gentle person, but I try hard not spare much thought towards what the meat on my plate costs not only the creature it came from, but the planet. I live in a house that's larger than I need, I wear clothes and use electronics made by wage slaves. If you were to snatch me up and drop me on a new and fertile planet with everything I need to live readily available I would immediately start changing that planet to suit my whims (not just my needs) without a second thought. That's a massive level of hubris no other creature we know of has.

bingethinker: Whiny kids. It's just a regular McD meal thrown into a cardboard box with a toy. It would take no more time to prepare than a normal meal.


From what I've seen in some other articles (this one isn't very comprehensive), the demand isn't just a little higher--more like 8x-10x higher than normal.

The franchise owners simply weren't prepared for this level of demand. A lot of individual stores are running out of both the boxes/toys and actual Big Mac components (they have a unique bun, etc). And even if they had additional staff (which of course they didn't) and inventory, there are genuine physical limitations as to how many Big Macs can be made per hour.

If the adult meals had quicker contents (example: all of them were just a double cheeseburger plus six nuggets) it probably wouldn't have been as labor and inventory intensive.

The insanity around these promotions was never as bad as it is these days.  The worst that came about in the old days were things like the Star Wars cups where a few assholes threw tantrums when the one they wanted ran out.

These days it's all assholes throwing tantrums, all the time.  Throw in the assholes who are ordering dozens of these things at once to scalp them online while the other assholes are waiting in line behind them to scream at you...

Yeah, nah, this shiat didn't happen to this degree back in the day.  I blame the parents who wouldn't smack their kids when they acted up in public, and encouraged them to believe they are the center of the universe.  Now those same kids are grown-ass adults who still refuse to behave in public and believe they are the center of the universe.

Smack your kids, people.  This is what happens when you don't.

Pretty sure I remember hearing during the last McD toy craze that you can simply pay the $4.99 or whatever and ask for just the the toy.

children only get a Happy Meal when they've successfully nagged an adult into buying them one. Adults can just buy stuff whenever they like.

Whoever wrote that obviously has no kids. You go to McDonalds, they get a happy meal, it's the only kids meal they have on the menu. So until they're old enough to eat a full sized meal, that's what they get. There's no nagging involved.

I'll even go to McDonalds and get the grandkids happy meals then go to another place to get the adults food. They only cost 4 bucks and the kids gobble 'em up.
