Keeping the hot side hot and nothing cool


Most of you born after 1985 will probably be confounded by the McDLT. Essentially, it was a method for McDonalds to serve a burger that simultaneously kept the hot side hot, kept the cool side cool, used an appalling amount of ecologically unsound styrofoam packaging, and humiliated a young and hungry Jason Alexander.* Just look at that skinny tie and the blazer with the rolled sleeves!

*For those of you born after 1985, Jason Alexander was a popular sitcom actor known for series such as Bob Patterson, Listen Up!, and Duckman.

    I can’t remember where I saw it or who wrote it, but the hands-down best comment about this ad:

    Maybe the best lettuce and tomato hamburger . . . ever!

    . . . EVER?

  5. Bizarre! My friend Carl used to be in love with the McDLT, so much so that he even did the dance in the commercial a couple of times. I don’t know how anyone could make going to McDonald’s an extra-embarrassing experience, but he sure managed it.
