What Is The Japanese McDonald's Advertisement?

In September 2023, the X profile for Japanese McDonald's posted an advertisement for the fast food company in the form of a short anime-style video. The commercial featured a brunette father eating with his orange-haired mom and daughter, with the little girl swaying with happiness after eating a fry.

The video was a hit with audiences that found the advertisement refreshingly sweet and simple, with many conservative internet users seeing the ad as a push for the more "traditional" family values they see as lacking in Western popular culture.
