McDonald’s Xmas ad shows chaotic moments we can all relate to – but eagle-eyed fans may spot hints of menu change | The Sun
MCDONALD'S Christmas advert is here and it shares festive moments we can all relate to.
Eagle-eyed fans may even spot hints of a menu change.
The fast-food giant is known for changing up its ads from one year to the next, and this festive season is no different.
The joyful 60-second clip is set to the soundtrack of Van Halen’s iconic 1980s smash hit "Jump" and sees Maccies fans give into their cravings.
It's titled "Fancy A McDonald’s" and is set to premiere on TV during ITV’s The Voice on Saturday, November 11.
Directed by Killing Eve’s Shannon Murphy, it follows various groups of kids, co-workers, parents, party-goers and even Santa himself flee the chaos of Christmas to grab a quick bite.

This includes an awkward work Christmas party, a cringe-worthy nativity play and a trip to the darts.
One by one each group turns to each other and raises their eyebrows indicating they're ready for a McDonald's.
This leads to hundreds of Maccies fans flooding the streets in search of their favourite snacks.
Along the way, the shot cuts to a resident who opens the door tangled in Christmas lights, to a man holding large cue cards asking if he fancies a trip to McDonald's – Love Actually-style.

The clip then lands in a McDonald's branch where eagle-eyed viewers may spot hints of a menu change.
Above the workers at the counter, the screens show two never-before-seen in the UK, burgers The Big & Cheesy and The Big & Cheesy Bacon.
Plus, the sell-out Chicken Big Mac can be seen as well.
Another familiar item can also be spotted on the screens, the Cheese Melt Dippers.
McDonald's did not want to confirm if these items are part of an upcoming menu change.
On the far right screen are the two McCafe hot drinks which made their debut just last week, the Galaxy Caramel Hot Chocolate and the Galaxy Caramel latte.
The McDonald's staff look up open-mouthed when they spot the huge crowd of festively dressed diners descending on them.
The festive ad ends with the words "Fancy a McDonald's?" appearing on a snow-covered sky.
McDonald's Christmas clip follows the launch of McDonald’s Festive Wins promotion, which kicked off on November 1.
It gives fans the chance to bag offers and prizes each day of November through the UK app.
It offers 18 chances to grab your favourite menu items for as little as 99p, all available exclusively on the McDonald’s UK App.
This year's festive clip differs from the Maccies ads of Christmas's gone by.
Last year's clip featured Alfie, a little boy overlooking a father and daughter playing together on a bike.
To comfort her distraught son, Alfie’s mum suggests they eat at McDonald’s which reminds them that at Christmas, it’s the little things that mean the most.
The year prior, in 2021, the fast-food chain warmed the hearts of fans showcasing the love between a girl and her imaginary friend.
Back in 2020, the ad was animation-based and was a heartfelt tale of a mum struggling to reconnect with her son.
Meanwhile, M&S has revealed its Christmas food advert for this year, featuring a star-studded cast of Hollywood actors.
