McDonald’s Enlists ‘New Girl’ Guy to Hawk Sirloin Burgers

By Kiran Aditham 

If the name Max Greenfield doesn’t ring a bell, he’s one of the stars on Fox’s New Girl. 

You’ll be seeing plenty of him over the next month or so thanks to a new campaign from McDonald’s to promote the fast-food giant’s Third Pound Sirloin Burgers.

Greenfield, in fact, shot 25 spots in a day for the project (helmed by Leo Burnett), which provides us with a constant stream of “Lovin’ Reminders.”


It’s part of a larger brand effort from McDonald’s to “be transparent” as the company tries to overcome a somewhat distressing year that included very little in the way of good news. Whether efforts like this can provide a bit of a turnaround remains to be seem, but you can check out more of the Leo spots below and be the judge: too folksy for their own good?
