Over on Twitter, McDonald’s fans couldn’t hold back and shared everything from their immediate reactions to the memories the advertisement stirred up. Responses like, “My daughter is 11 & wanted to throw all her plush toys out last wkend. This made me [crying emoji] as they are in bags atm. I don’t have the [heart] to put them out though. Everyone needs an Iggy and I know she’ll regret it,” or, “Advert better than their burgers. This is by far the best Christmas ad on TV so far,” line the thread. One comment sums it up best — “Love this, nostalgia.”
Even if you count yourself as one of many who think that a fast food commercial can’t get you feeling this holiday season, this ad might just push you over the edge. If you do get a glimpse of the commercial, make sure to keep a box of tissues at the ready and get ready to feel a wave of nostalgia for the holidays like no other.
