About

Pakistani McDonald's "Sonic the Hedgehog" Happy Meal Commercials refers to a series of jokes and videos about a 2004 commerical for a Sonic the Hedgehog-themed McDonald's Happy Meal in Pakistan. The commercial has been criticized for the 3-D animation of the characters from the video game franchise Sonic the Hedgehog.

Origin

On January 17th, 2011, YouTuber SonikkuForever posted a video entitled "Hilariously Bad Pakistan Sonic Heroes Happy Meal Commercial – 2004." In the video's description, they wrote, "This is just…awful. It looks like a kid's first attempt with 3D Studio Max. How did Sega approve this trash? And yes, Rouge is naked. This aired in Pakistan, and the language (other than butchered English) is Urdu." The post received more tahn 1.9 million views in nearly eight years.



Spread

About one month later, on February 7th, YouTuber farfromsubtle featured the commercial in the video "Sonic at his BEST and WORST! – Show and Trailer!" The post received more than 118,000 views in about eight years (shown below, left). Additionally, on May 30th, YouTuber Sonicfreak included the commercial in the video compilation "Sonic Mcdonalds Commercials (1993-2004)," which received more than 1.6 million views in under eight years (shown below, right).



On July 2nd, 2015, the official Twitter [1] account for Sonic the Hedgehog tweeted, "Burgers. Fries. Creepy foreign commercials. This week for #TBT, we honor the memory of the Sonic Happy Meal." The tweet received more than 420 retweets and 900 likes in three years (shown below).
