Intrestingly enough, a new McDonald's advertisement staring Cedric the Entertainer, who is African-American, happens to also feature Grimace and the Hamburglar in a promotion for the Big N’ Tasty sandwich.
Now, what I find odd is that Cedric calls Grimace his "dawg", and realizing that he has hurt Grimace, Cedric tries to make up for it by telling him that he is "a big purple...". Cedric proceedes to say something to the effect of "I don't know what you are", and then everyone starts dancing.
Isn't it odd that there is a McDonald's ad where the celebrity endorsement does not know what the hell Grimace is?
Just to let you know, the Hamburglar is alive and well. I suppose the clown missed.
