A new McDonalds commercial is causing all sorts of outrage.
The commercial, which aired last week in the U.K., shows a young boy asking his mother questions about what his obviously deceased father was like. She goes through a list of dad's traits like his "tall as a house" frame, his reflectively shiny shoes and football (soccer) prowess - all opposite that of his surviving son.
They then head to McDonalds where the boy eats a Filet-o-Fish, which the mom says was his dad's favorite.
People are upset McDonalds seems to be using childhood bereavement to sell their product.
What do you think?

I am sickened and disgusted by this advert. Lost my dad at 9. Memories? Yes .Burger? No! Shameful ad #McDonalds— Cate Wilson (@Cate43) May 12, 2017
New #McDonalds advert, cynically using the story of a kid's dead dad is trashy beyond belief. Who needs 2 parents when you have McNuggets?— Tony Richman (@TonyLRichman) May 12, 2017
