Because McDonalds wants you to eat at their restaurants for every meal: it's good for you!  
Firstly: great idea for a community.
Secondly: surely you've seen this one. The ad opens with a little girl playing dressup, showing her individuality via outrageous clothing. Mom dismisses it by saying "it isn't what goes on the tummy, it's what goes in the tummy that's important." She takes her kid to McDonalds where the child, who is obviously capable of making good choices, selects "all white meat nuggets," milk, and fruit in her happy meal. Right. Because McDonalds is good for you, and kids always pick the non-fried sides. No wonder child obesity rates are growing (pun intended) at an exponential rate. Teaching kids to eat at McDonalds on a regular basis is probably one of the most irresponsible things a parent can do. Ugh...

Funny, it reminds me of how Walmart is now airing (or will start soon) commercials focusing on the time when they were a small family company. Because on some level they know that (some) people are getting tired of buying cheap plastic crap from a faceless corporation. Just like McDonalds is slanting their advertising to reflect the growing awareness that their food is little better than rat poison. It's all about the image . . .

Heh. Even though Wal-Mart is going full speed ahead away from the "Small family company" that they used to be.

Couldn't have said it any better myself!
