McDonald’s Is Trying To Murder Batman Over Snapchat, And These Words Actually Make Sense In That Order


I enjoy both photographs and reminders that our time on this Earth is fleeting and that we will all one day leave our lives, becoming as ephemeral as memories and ghosts, so naturally I like Snapchat a lot. If you're not familiar with it, it's a program that sends pictures to your friends that automatically delete after ten seconds or so, and is used mostly to take pictures of your Pokémon. That's what I do with it, anyway.

Recently, they've taken to sending subscribers ads, and last Friday, one for McDonald's popped up, with the premise that McDonald's is so good that even long-standing arch-enemies will put aside their differences and be friends -- something that they chose to illustrate by having the Joker present a smiling Batman with a balloon animal. Folks, I have read my share of Batman comics and let me tell you: No matter what you may have heard from McDonald's, that balloon is definitely filled with poison gas.

McDonald’s Offers Up Gendered ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′ Happy Meal Toys, So You Can Finally Have That Hot Pink Spidey Purse You Wanted

McDonald's Spider-Man Toys For Girls

The release of a major superhero movie is pretty much always accompanied by a fast food tie-in. Even the relatively complex, morally challenging Dark Knight had that pizza with triple pepperoni from Dominos, so it's pretty obvious that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is going to be going all out. And they have, with a promotional tie-in with McDonald's that includes Happy Meal toys. The thing is, the ASM2 Happy Meal toys come in two distinct forms: Cars, masks and action figures for the boys, and bracelets, purses and journals for the girls. You know, for their feelings.

You're f**kin' up, McD's.

McDonald’s To Offer ‘Beware The Batman’ Toys In Superstitious, Cowardly Happy Meals


As Ray Croc famously said before a 10-cent hamburger crashed through his window and sent him on the path of vengeance against expensive hamburgers, "Children are a hungry, easily distracted lot." That's why the McDonald's restaurant made the decision to include toys with its kid-friendly Happy Meals -- and now, they're taking cheeseburgers and chicken nuggets back to their darker, more brutal roots with toys based on Cartoon Network's Beware the Batman!

Check 'em out after the jump!
