Flashback Friday: Ernie Whitt's McDonald's Commercial
By Ian Hunter
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!
