Looks like someone at McDonald's goofed. While Mickey D's has launched a corporate responsibility blog (ha! that's a laugh!), another department at the company has decided that toy Hummers are a good Happy Meal toy. Great plan. Get the kids turned onto gas guzzling vehicles while they're young!
According to the New York Times:
"...with gas prices hovering at $3 a gallon and threatening to go higher, sales of Hummers are declining as Americans become increasingly conscious of gas mileage. McDonald’s, however, appears not to have gotten the message. This week, the restaurant chain started putting toy Hummers in children’s Happy Meal boxes, calling it the “Hummer of a Summer” promotion."The Hummer toys are in the 'boy' Happy Meals, while girls can choose a Polly Pocket fashion doll. Glad to see that along with promoting environmentalism, McDonald's is fighting traditional gender stereotypes.
Update: Create your own billboard at Ronald McHummer
