I just couldn’t believe that a promotion this wrongheaded made it all away through what I assume is a Byzantine approval process at McDonald’s to its boorish conclusion: this Happy Meal box asking the kiddies "Where would you go on a Hummer adventure?" and describing how it can barrel its way over boulders and through streams (perhaps killing future Filet O’ Fish along the way).
