One thought on “come as you are”

  1. McDonalds France / BETC Euro RSCG is copying Lebanese promotional idea…I see it as disgrace from the famous fast food brand o go such low, the featured campaign is in it’s core the same communication tonality is used by Crepway back in 2005.

    The McDonald’s France marketing team responsible for the campaign were Grégoire Champetier, Nawfal Trabelsi, Nathalie Le Garlantezec and Amaya Fournau.
