McDonald's "Pay with Lovin'"

    I didn't see it discussed much in the midst of some of the other Super Bowl commercials, but I remember thinking that there is no way I would enter a McDonald's until the "dance-for-your-food" promotion is over. Not my thing. At all. And I see that others think it's equally bizzare:

    Pay With Lovin’ and Share a Smooch: McDonald’s, Qdoba, and terrible fast-food promotions.

    People just want to pay for their food, eat their food, and leave, right? Or are people actually enjoying McDonald's' attempt to party-up the place and I'm just a stick in the mud?

    Of course, no one under 50 eats there anyway.

    I am waiting for the story about the racist cashier worker who only made black people dance for their food.

    I eat there about three times a year, usually when I'm driving through a city where there's no other option.

    I'm just waiting for examples of people fucking with the employees...

    "I was going to pay with Lovin, but then I died."

    How badly do you feel for the kid working the counter for minimum wage having to tell someone they have to pay with Lovin.

    "It's free. Just go..."

    This idea is almost as bad as replacing Ronald with Pennywise.

    Do blumpkins count as "lovin' "?

    I mean, it is McDonald's, after all.

    "Pay with Lovin" what the teenagers have already been doing to your milkshake.

    The 19-year-old working the counter is going to get busted for trying to turn the 15-year-old female customer into a prostitute. "Give ME some lovin', baby, and lunch is free."
