Although not everyone would like to see their precious pet fish portrayed as food, the McDonald’s Filet-O-Fish campaign is nevertheless very clever and creative. It features a classic fish bowl that has been shaped to look like a transparent burger. Simple and full of impact, the campaign can actually be interpreted as showing people the Filet-O-Fish can be considered as precious as their pet fish, not the other way around.
Conceived and executed by Leo Burnett, the McDonald’s Filet-O-Fish campaign was photographed by Leap Studios. The interesting thing about this print ad is that it does give the impression that McDonald’s Filet-O-Fish burger is really fresh. Since McDonald’s and other fast food restaurants are facing heat about this point, it is only natural that they would advertise otherwise.
