Candlelight dinner for two this Valentine’s Day… at McDonald’s
Who said romance was dead? Or entrepreneurial spirit for that matter, judging from this advert for a Valentine’s Day dinner at a McDonald’s.
Not only will you and your date be able to share a Happy Meal in the slightly restrictive dinner timeslot of 6pm to 8pm, but you will also be greeted at the door and enjoy some rare fast food table service.
‘All you have to do is just sit back, relax, and enjoy your romantic evening with your date,’ the advert states, before adding the killer line of: ‘Featuring musical selections by Ron.’
The reddit user who posted this on imgur was initially reluctant to reveal where the photo was taken, but it later emerged it was Southport in North Carolina, in the US.
The response to the advert was broadly positive, with one user noting: ‘Chances are this is a privately owned franchise of a McDonald’s by a family and they are doing this on their own will. Keep in mind not everyone can afford to take their girlfriend to a nice restaurant and this may be something nice to do.’
‘I’d take my girlfriend just to do something different this year, and get to say we had a fine dining experience at McDonald’s,’ another added. ‘Seems like it would be a good laugh.’
