A bit of a copycat? Shhh

So here’s a marvellous new ad from McDonald’s in which a man shushes a woman and tells her to stay in the moment:

It is, of course, entirely unlike this ad from last year for Carlton Mid in whcih a man shushes a woman and tells her to stay a little longer:

  6. Jeez, they BOTH reference Dianne Wiest playing diva actress Helen Sinclair in Bullets Over Broadway. She won an Oscar for her role in the Woody Allen movie.

  8. The Carlton one is much better.
    The McDonalds one is awful. No one should ever be shushed liked that … bit too similar (but not as bad) as the Nigella incident.
