Mcdonald's BF-GF Ad Banned in the Philippines

The officials of the The Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines CBCP appealed that the Mcdonald's BF-GF Ad may present a wrong message to the viewers especially to the children. Fr. Melvin Castro, executive secretary of the CBCP Episcopal Commission on Family Life said, "If the ad attempted to teach commitment, (it failed) because it was too superficial to point to a packet of French fries as the basis of a relationship."

With respect to the request of the CBCP officials, specifically to the Bishop of Caloocan, Deogracias Iñiguez, McDonald’s company made a decision to get rid of their 30-second TV commercial from giant networks airing in the Philippines according to Torres. Moreover, she stated that the old commercial will be aired instead.

The latest McDonald’s commercial became controversial for its scene which showed a young girl asking a boy at her age if she could be his girlfriend. Knowing that the girl may demand a lot of things, the little boy replied that he was not ready for what the girl had asked. Meanwhile, the boy agreed when she told him that all she ever wanted was only the P25 French fries.

I was born in Toledo City but moved to Lapu-Lapu City at a very young age. Grew up, attended school and now, still lives there. She loves movies and saw a little too many. She also watches a lot of crappy tv shows. For some reason, she thinks its relevant to mention that. She played damath and chess on her primary school years. She won games and was sent to other schools to compete. This has turned out to be completely and utterly useless. Now, she's writing about herself in the 3rd person. What's up with that?! LoL! Peace out!
