McDonald’s Tricked People With the Promise of Nonexistent Jobs for a Lame Ad

By

America's least favorite fast-food chain set up a stunt that must have sounded good at the time: They put out a casting call for a new Vegas show called Hunger in the Night, inviting hopefuls to come and audition for the horror-themed musical. (No, it's not a show about McDonald's terrifying Happy Meal mascot.) The casting call was fake, and it only existed so the chain could get footage of people acting like zombies for a web ad designed to remind people that Mickey D's is open 24 hours. "People are, like, please I need this role," points out one presumed hopeful. But nope! That release form you signed just gives McDonald's permission to use your likeness in its marketing material  probably not the role most people would have signed up for, given the choice.
