All you have to do to sell a product like that is to get an actor who looks like a doctor, and a very plain looking actress to strike poses in front of a mirror, and even more actors to give verbal testimonials...Actors, actors, and even more actors...Oh my!

Nice hair, Arlene! (1:07)

This would be much more amusing if the same snake oil wasn't still so prevalently peddled today (replete with legions of suckers continuing to buy it).

Anytime I hear that tune, I have to sing along...

McDonald's is our kind of place,
They feed you rattlesnakes,
They throw food in your face,
It's such a happy place!

I've dropped my McDonald's cup with one of those lids on it and all the liquid spilled all over the place. I call this False Advertising!!!!

So according to the sign, even back in 1967 there have been billions and billions served at Mcdonalds? The franchise had been around for what, a decade by then? Also, I really kind of dig the waiter's smile. Wish I can get that kind of smile when I go to a McD's today!

The jingle is sung to the tune of "Down by the Riverside".

It sure beats that lousy "I'm lovin' it" jingle we got now.

I was only in second grade but remember this. I probably heard about this in CCD since I was in second grade.
