Shamrock Shake Salute....

In Canada,currently for a limited time, we have have the Shamrock Shake back at Mcdonalds. It's part of the restaurant's pop culture for decades. According to Wikipedia, it was first introduced in 1970. Here's the LINK if you want to know more.

From a buy of commericals on ebay some years ago, here's 2 spots from a 1978 US radio campaign for the Shamrock Shake. 1-60 sec and 1-30 sec national spot promoting that rather grossly looking green milkshake, which I have to say certainly tastes better then it looks.

Mcd's......Food, Folks and Jingles.....

After I had a taste of the Flu for the past couple of weeks, we get back on track here on the jetsam with some no doubt rare Mcdonald's Jingles from 1990, back when Tony Bennett was in a career renaissance...and sang for the fast food chain. Country singer Kathy Mattea covered the country version and Angela Bofill did things for the R&B market. All full sings here. There's one called "Doctor" that really doesn't fall under any music's just..well....wacky. In any event, enjoy.
