Hug Those Dads

So McDonald’s recently released this commercial.

While there are many… interesting… moments to focus on here, the one that caught our eye was a phrase so simple, so beautiful, that we could never forget it.

That’s right. Hug Those Dads.

This sign left us with a lot of questions, the main one being: Which dads? Hug which dads? We have no problem with huggin’ dads, McDonald’s, but you’re going to need to be a little more specific. Like this.

Despite its ambiguity, we were so inspired by this phrase that we thought, “Why stop at a McDonald’s sign? There’s so much more potential here. We can make this better.” So that’s what we did. Please enjoy these various reimaginings of the one, the only, Hug Those Dads.
