I can see the colour is "green" but not as in environmental friendly I suppose. Aren't people gonna freak out? It might be safe but how do they know? Hm maybe they don't care at Saint Patty's day.

I see nothing but green. and I dont understand what it is trying to say - shamrock shakes are back? who cares?
Besides, I really dont like the logo on green background, is it an official logo?

I don't think it's supposed to be about eco-friendly. It's for McDonald's Shamrock shake....which I think is nasty...but people anxiously wait for it every year. The green color represents Saint Patrick's Day, at least in the U.S. Not eco-friendliness. And I don't think people will freak out. Hell, they're probably going to spend this week drinking green-colored beer.

Every year on St. Patrick's day, the city of Chicago colors the Chicago River green to celebrate. I'm assuming the ad is playing off the green shamrock shakes and the river being green.

We don't have green shakes here. What flavor is that supposed to be?
