Buzzcocks song in new McDonalds ad (Morrissey not happy about it)

tattooed McDonalds worker

As a “TV Ad Songs” website points out, “What Do I Get?” by Buzzcocks is used in a new UK McDonalds commercial advertising “Big Flavour Wraps”.

As was the case in McDonald’s previous Big Flavour commercial, the latest ad shows a tattooed female employee preparing a pair of wraps, this time for a very excited looking young male customer. I guess he must really enjoy his chicken wraps.

The 30-second video was posted to the official McDonalds UK YouTube channel on the 8th of June, 2016.

Fellow (former) Mancunian Morrissey, who recently weighed in on the U.S. presidential race, is among those who noticed

Please, somebody, tell me it’s just a bad dream …

Pete Shelley has allowed McDonald’s to use Buzzcocks’ What do I get? to TV advertise McDonald’s new Big Flavour (the flavour being sawdust) Chicken Wraps?!
In the words of another Buzzcocks song: oh shit…

The video is viewable over HERE.

Meanwhile, Buzzcocks just announed a tour that brings them to Irving Plaza in NYC among other places.

Catch Morrissey this year at Riot Fest.
