McDonald’s launches new TV campaign that showcases fathers’ love for their daughters

McDonald’s have launched a new TV campaign built around the idea that dads will do anything for their daughters.

The ad, created by creative agency DDB Sydney and production company The Sweet Shop, is set to the music from the famous Meatloaf track ‘I’d Do Anything For Love’ and tells the story of one dad’s love for his little girl. 

Director, Noah Marshall, said: “The thing that really got me on this project was the true insight that most parents willingly sacrifice a tonne of stuff as they raise their kids.” 

The ad is extension of McDonald’s current ‘very Un-McDonald’s campaign, which seeks move the brand away from its fast-food roots to be seen as a more premium option.
