Flashback Friday: Ernie Whitt's McDonald's Commercial


By


Have you ever been sitting in your local McDonald's enjoying a nice McChicken sandwich, only to look up briefly and see Ernie Whitt across the restaurant? Apparently this scenario happened for one young lady.

For this week's Flashback Friday, we take a look back at Ernie Whitt's McDonald's commercial from 1986.

This isn't the first time that a Blue Jays player has been featured in a McDonald's commercial, as George Bell and even Bobby Cox have appeared in spots for Mickey D's.

The most incredible part of this commercial is that there was a time where Blue Jays caps were only $1.99. Heck, you can't even get a large fries for that much these days!

  1. That hat's way too small for you, Ernie.

    1. Such is the side affect of those snap-back caps. I guess one size doesn't fit all!

    1. Wicked! Be sure to hang on to it ... sooner or later it'll be worth moderately more than it's original price!

  3. Hey, my dad got one also! He's a true Blue Jay fan and customized hat collector. He was pretty sure he kept it somewhere in the house. Yes, he is.

  4. The only thing I have in my home right now from Mcdonald's is, the party hat they are giving away whenever they are holding parties and event in their food chains. I remember improvising and doing a party hat by myself by using some used folders at home, I'm still kid wayback then.

  5. You managed to dig up this Mcdonald ad, which seems to be a decades and decades old now. You're good on tracking or must I say, the owner of the video is just good at securing things.
