With the ailing economy, businesses are becoming more cut throat with it’s advertising. According to an article on CNN, McDonald’s recently launched a billboard campaign exclaiming that paying $4 for Starbucks is for dumb asses. With the message plastered on over 14o billboards on some of the country’s most traveled real estate, the message is sure grab attention.
I have to admit I love Starbucks, but they charge you for Wifi which should be free at any legitimate coffee shop and even offered at McDonald’s for free. To be fair the coffee I normally get at Starbucks costs less than a couple bucks so the billboard is off base a little.
Nevertheless, you gotta admit it’s a funny ad.
