This new McDonald’s advert showcases the temporary return of the Grand Big Mac burger to the sound of a classic Roxette song. A voice on the advert says “Spend even longer with the taste you love” while we see a man eating the larger Grand Big Mac. The voice-over then says “nothing lasts forever” as it is revealed that the burgers which were originally released two years ago have only returned to MacDonald’s outlets until 24 March.
The music in the advert
