I don't know if people remember the controversy around that McDonald's Good News campaign, when, at first, they included the razor inside the Egg McMuffin.

The only razor endorsed by Clarence Carter!

Problem: warehouse full of razors nobody wants for some obscure reason. What to do? Bury them in a shallow grave in New Mexico? To make a long story short, no.

(Conversation in my head from the first one:)
"Honey, could you give me a good strokin'?" "Okay! I'll get the razor."

So you can get stroked with your Big Mac? Genius marketing.

Too bad the commercial predates the Clarence Carter song. I be strokin'!

There must have been so many offended women who came in for a breakfast, completely unaware of the promotion, who were then handed a razor with no further explanation.

So I'm just curious, was the euphemistic meaning of the term "stroked" lost to the people of the 1980's, and do I just have a dirty mind? or, perhaps even more disturbingly, did the advertisers totally recognize the double meaning of the term and use it to its full extant during this ad campaign? I really want to know.

And they wonder why the kids that grew up in the 70s have more chemical inbalance and PTSD than any other generation??? (sigh)

Did you know the woman playing the McDonald's worker was art director on Boondock Saints. Yep, I just made that up.

Three observations:

How on EARTH did anyone not see the innuendo in the "Stroked" ad when they produced it? Amazing.

White people once worked at McDonald's.

Gordon Jump was a rock star.
