Maccas hits Tinder: ‘They didn’t respond to my message about wanting to eat their filet-o-fish’

Tinder users have been taken by surprise over the last 24-hours as an unlikely match popped up in their feeds – McDonald’s.

Maccas is asking people to swipe right to enter a competition to win a ‘luxe’ holiday to Thailand – which the Australian government recommends travellers exercise a ‘high degree of caution’ to travel to after this week’s bomb in Bangkok.

Reaction to the campaign so far on social media ranges from impressed to depressed at their best chance of finding love being with a fast food restaurant. 

And of course it must now be open season on food-related entedres, so far led by one Reddit user pointed out: “They didn’t respond to my message about wanting to eat their filet-o-fish.”

Inevitably the messaging around the campaign is around matching ingredients – driving people to their Create Your Taste website.Screen Shot 2015-08-20 at 9.35.28 am Screen Shot 2015-08-20 at 9.35.41 am Screen Shot 2015-08-20 at 9.35.56 am Screen Shot 2015-08-20 at 9.36.08 am
