Trademark McCrisis? (Or, McArabia)

Angry at McDonaldsIs this good for McDonalds’ branding (click here for my personal favorite URL)?

I’m not so sure it’s that bad. Having your trademark publicly desecrated by the perpetually unhappy — the people, as Jonathan Rosenblum puts it, “for whom life itself is an insult” — because your mark is the happy symbol of American convenience, hospitality, tasty enjoyment and, well, let’s say free enterprise — isn’t the worst thing that can happen.

McDonald's AbroadBy the way, notice how the “angry” guy’s friends are cracking up as he does his performance for the cameras. Five will get you ten that he’s doing this to impress a girl.

Chicks love this stuff.

Yes, this cross-cultural business is confusing, isn’t it?
