Enjoying a sweet dessert sensation from McDonald’s this afternoon, I noticed some highly unusual packaging. Here’s a hint:
She’s my cherry pie
Cool drink of water
Such a sweet surprise
Tastes so good make a grown man cry
Sweet cherry pie
This item on the value menu seemed to be communicating a subliminal message to me. It’s almost like Warrant wrote the copy on the box.
Let’s break it down, shall we?
- Cherry Pie. ‘Enuf said.
- Check out the guy with the wraparound shades.*
- Check out the smirk on the guy with the wraparound shades, aimed right at you.
- That smirk’s lecherous intent is further exaggerated by the tag line: “i’m lovin’ it”
- What’s with the girlfriend, in a clearly submissive pose? A $1.49 pie causes this kind of reaction? Maybe if you’re stoned … or baked, as the kids might say.
- Her reaction is clearly reminiscent of 80s hair metal videos. She might as well be posing across a Jaguar.
- “CAUTION: FILLING IS HOT!” Might as well finish that consumer safety warning off with an imperative: “GIRLFRIEND! HOT I SAID!”
For the younger crowd, Warrant’s Cherry Pie might not be familiar as a hair metal song, but as part of the audition sequence in the cheerleading flick “Bring it on!”. (Youtube, skip to 6:33)
*Or are those Vuarnet sunglasses?
