I Guess I'll Be Ordering the Big Mac

I saw a billboard the other day for a restaurant. I don't remember which. Ruby River? Ruby Tuesday's? Something involving rubies. Or not. Apparently this is another advertising fail, since I can't even remember the name of the restaurant. Ah well. I'm over it.

Anyway, the billboard showed a picture of a smiling couple next to the words, "Because she said yes."

How sweet. If she says yes to the proposal, she gets steak. If the answer is no, he's taking her straight to McDonald's.

Frankly, I think McDonald's is missing out on a great opportunity for advertising. Right after the Ruby *mumble something unintelligible* restaurant ad, there should be a billboard with a pic of a sad couple and the words, "Because she said no--McDonald's."

I would remember that ad. Most definitely.

Or for In-N-Out. That way they could sit in the very long line for the drive-thru in a very awkward silence before they got their overrated food.

I'm pretty sure it's Ruby River.

Ditto on the previous comments about In-N-Out. So, she says no... Absolutely he takes her to McDonalds', but I will add that he strictly forbids her from getting a Happy Meal. I mean, read that title.

They could even up the class and put the new ad next to the smartlipo billboard.
