In one of the strangest moves to attract customers, a McDonald's in California is trying to integrate the five elements of fire, earth, wood, water, and metal - Feng Shui into the world of sugar, fat, etc. etc. The restaurant has totally redesigned their interior under the guidance of Grand Master Dr. Chi-Jean Liu.
