Leo Burnett Unveils ‘My Burger’ Winners for McDonald’s UK

Leo Burnett is unveiling McDonald’s “My Burger” campaign today, as the chain announces that five crowd-sourced burgers are being made available in the UK.

“My Burger” truly began back in May, with McDonald’s calling upon consumers to submit burger ideas through an online “burger builder” created by digital agency Razorfish. Entrants combined a beef patty with their choices from over 80 ingredients for toppings. The most popular burgers were then assessed by a panel including English rugby legend and Celebrity MasterChef winner Phil Vickery and McDonald’s Managing Director Mark Hawthorne, who chose the ultimate five winners. Leo Burnett’s documentary- style campaign introduces the winning burgers by way of some almost-winners who either went a step too far with their ingredients or, in one case, had the same ingredients as the winning burger but forgot to submit. The five winning burgers will each be featured on the menu for one week before the next winner is introduced. They include the “Big Uno,” “The Sweet Chili Fiesta,” “The Ultimate Supreme” “The McPizza Pepperoni Burger,” and “The Big Spicy Bacon.” The “Big Uno” launches today, and the promotion will end with “The Big Spicy Bacon Burger” from November 12-18.

Leo Burnett Satisfies Craving with ‘Hunter Gatherer’ for McDonald’s

Leo Burnett has unveiled the latest in their “Favorites” campaign for McDonald’s UK with a new spot entitled “Hunter Gatherer.”

“Hunter Gatherer” — which will appear in a 60-second version online (above) and a 40-second broadcast version — follows a man as he attempts to satisfy his pregnant partner’s food craving while their city is shutting down. He goes to several groceries and convenience stores, all of which are closed, just shutting down for the night, or don’t have what he’s looking for. Finally, the man spots a 24-hour McDonald’s. He returns, McDonald’s bag in hand, to his skeptical partner. When she opens the box, however, it’s filled with the pickles she’s craving. It’s a cute concept, and highlights McDonald’s’ “Hey, we never close” selling point in an imaginative way. (Although it does also raise the question: Can you really go to McDonald’s and order nothing but a box of pickles?) Stick around for credits after the jump. Read more
