That famous Big Mac jingle in an ad from '75

McChronicles has a great post about an instructional video on how to order "The Most Illest Futuristic Sandwich Ever."

The idea is to get a pseudo-Big Mac at McDonald's for only a dollar and entails ordering a double cheeseburger from the $1 menu and then asking for a "bun with seeds" (sesame seed bun) and 'special sauce' instead of ketchup. French fries are substituted for the middle bun that would be found on a real Big Mac.

Watching that video brought back memories of the famous Big Mac jingle. I guess there's a whole generation out there now that doesn't have the Big Mac's ingredients memorized because they've never heard the jingle!

"Two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun."

It's never too late to learn! I've included a Big Mac TV ad from 1975 below, with great lines like, "The big sandwich with the great big taste that every body's talking about."

And yes, the last words of the commercial are "Far out!" --"Where your dollar gets a break, every day. Far out!"

Yeah except we charge for the Big mac sauce 30 cents for that exact reason, so that you can't get a Big mac for one dollar. We're not stupid.
