The visual is interesting, but I challenge the message. It says to me that McDonald's serves
Gold Fish sandwiches. That is not appetizing at all. Nice try... I applaud for the visual design.

I fully agree with you.

I do not see how this is supposed to sell the sandwich...

Agree with you tommy, the concept of fresh comes through fine but the selling point of burger (just bland as water??) is left far behind along with the dubious message of selling gold fish sandwiches,,,

As weird as this is, I like it a lot. Damien Hirst/Marco Evaristti-esque, and attention getting.

Poor goldfish. The bowl is waaay too small for the fish's size.

Greenpeace is calling.

interesting, could have been more worked, the weird thing to me visually is the cheese, without it, it could have been nicer to sight

i love the art direction but agreed that the goldfish and there is NO appetizing and dont think that client approved it. Because since i know McDonalds they would never ever let go out something like this mainly because they always trust and believe in the appetizing strategy which works 100% fine. And I personally feel that there is no need to show fish because HL says and I know you must know that in adv.. there is saying"don't show what you say and vice versa" but sometimes its fine to do it:-)
