McDonald’s – “Piano Recital”
An adorable little girl overcomes her stage fright at a piano recital in a classic McDonald’s commercial from 1986. With the promise of some delicious McNuggets, she goes on to play a Mickey D rendition of Für Elise. Beethoven would be proud.
Years later, Gen-Xers remember the tune from this commercial; advertising genius at its finest. Kids suddenly had an interest in learning piano and McDonald’s experienced its golden decade earning $727 million in 1989.
