Foodiggity Imagines McDonald's Happy Meal Mascot in Horror Movies

Although McDonald's is totally standing by the design of its terrifying new Happy Meal mascot, everybody else seems to be able to agree that this personified smiling box is a whole lot more creepy rather than cute.

To show just how at home 'Happy' would be in some of the most classic horror movies, Foodiggity put the new McDonald's mascot in place of some scary movie characters like Hannibal Lecter, Jaws and those spooky twin girls from The Shining. The funny photo series imagines movies like The Ring, to Psycho and Rosemary's Baby with Happy as the bad guy. With those soul-sucking eyes and that terrifyingly toothy smile, he makes a pretty good stand-in for these frightening horror movie killers.
