Quarter Pounder Grammy’s Takeover
for McDonald’s

For the 2020 Grammy Awards, McDonald’s wanted to remind the Quarter Pounder fans why they are Quarter Pounder fans.

This first W+K work for McDonald’s: laconic, quiet and the opposite of the overstimulating Lurpaky foodporn every brand is doing.

And we sold through the idea of Brian Cox as the VO. He since became the voice of the brand. I think Brady Langmann from Esquire got what we were going for: “In the minutes since I heard the Brian Cox ASMR [in] a Mickey D’s commercial, I’ve found a new lease on life. Life can give me the occasional gift.”

Oh, superstart Creative Director Eric Baldwin had a f** awesome different take.
