Since the success of the popular Old Spice's "Smell like a man, man" ad campaign, it seems like McDonalds Quarter Pounder commercial is following suit in their own macho commercial.
The 30-second spot features a regular Joe holding up a McDonalds Quarter Pounder in one hand while doing masculine things with the other, ending it off with their main message, "Because you’ll look like more of a man with a Quarter Pounder in your hand.” Eat enough of those burgers and there sure will be a "big man."
