McDonald’s seems to have liked to do paid partnerships with professional basketball players. As it appears, Michael Jordan wasn’t the only basketball player doing ads for them. The legendary award-winning NBA player Larry Bird also filmed a commercial for McDonald’s in 1993. Bird, also referred to as “Gold Hand,” is considered one of the best NBA players of all time.
He carries three NBA championship titles with the Boston Celtics that he played for, as well as an Olympic gold medal that he and his team, the “Dream Team,” won at the Barcelona Olympic games in 1992. He was quite busy playing basketball around this time but managed to make time to do a commercial for McDonald’s.
Brooke Shields at Ronald's Quarters
So many stars have been affiliated with this brand and that includes Brooke Shields when she attended the 1992 "Helping Hands" mural drive to mark the halfway point of the Ronald McDonald House construction.
Most people in America know Brooke Shields, but if not, she's an American actress and model who rose to fame at 12 for a controversial role in the film "Pretty Baby" in 1978 and also for a role in "Blue Lagoon" in 1980. By the time this picture was taken in the '90s, Shields was making appearances on big hit shows like "The Simpsons" and "Friends."
Pop Singer Endorses McDonald's
Around the turn of the millennium, a London McDonald's was visited by Brian Harvey, who was then the lead singer of the British pop band East 17. He is certainly not the only British pop star who has allegedly claimed, "I'm lovin' it." The "Hello" hit singer Adele has admitted that she feasts at McDonald's at least once a week, even after her famous weightloss transformation.
She even went as far as claiming that a chicken McNugget, Big Mac, and french fries are her all-time favorite three-course meal. Another British star that frequents McDonald's is the supermodel and actress Cara Delevigne. Even celebs that follow so-called strict diets need a cheat day every once in a while.
McDonald's Has You Covered
McDonald's is always around when we need it the most. Long day at work and too tired to go home and cook? No worries, McDonald's has got you back! A long day of tanning at the beach, and you're now in dire need of a quick and convenient snack? McDonald's will sort you out.
At least, that is how these two babes saw it after their day at the beach in Waikiki, Hawaii. Although it is not advised to always reach for the convenience of McDonald's all the time, we think it's definitely okay to do so from time to time. After all, we're only human.
Ronald Lives On, In Long Beach
Although you will probably never see someone cleaning a massive inflatable Ronald McDonald in Long Beach, you may very well visit what's left of him at the Long Beach Ronald McDonald House. Located in Southern California, this safe house has provided care and comfort for families since 2011. An absolutely stunning initiative that's left behind by this obsolete clown.
This is a community available to children and their families who need support while children are undergoing medical procedures. Ideally situated near the Miller Children's Hospital, this is a place for families to stay while their children are under medical care at the hospital, sparing the families from having to pay for expensive hotels nearby.
