I realized that Ronald McDonald isn't really used anymore.

When I was a kid, he was the Mickey Mouse of fast food mascots.

yeah in the 2000s, people really started questioning if having a fun mascot to encourage children to eat more fast food was a tasteful marketing campaign or not. I think a lot of this really started happening after the success of Super Size Me. Even if we know the circumstances behind the results of that documentary are... questionable, to say the least, the culture shift stuck.

Anyone remember those cartoon VHS tapes they used to give out at McDonald's? Those were wild.

I remember some kids I knew had one of them that centered around Grimace, I think I saw it once but I can't recall any details except Grimace was there.

They got rid of most of them, but then the outcry was so great that they stopped & left the ones that remained. It wasn't covid-related; this happened a few years ago.

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"

Pretty sure McDonald's took down their playgrounds years before COVID.

Also, I'm going to keep complaining about not being able to see post history or being able to find anything on the site's search function until Shane fixes the problem.

Someone working on Stadia said that streamers should pay companies to stream their games.

When NINTENDO has a more progressive stance on streaming than you do, that's bad.
