A recent McDonald's dyslexia ad was showcased in Sweden in an attempt to raise awareness for the world's most common learning disability. Created in a collaboration with Nord DDV, this ad was displayed across the chain's digital displays. The ad would frequently jumble the letters of standard McDonald's advertisements, as well as the restaurant's menu. The result caused confusion among customers but served as a powerful tool to show how frustrating dyslexia can be.
McDonald's dyslexia ads were also accompanied by a free book in Happy Meals. This book detailed a young boy's struggles with dyslexia and how he handles everyday life. According to Christoffer Rönnblad, marketing director of McDonald’s Sweden, this campaign used the power of McDonald's to make a difference.
