There's a commercial for those McDonald's Mario Kart toys now

Jul 05 // Brittany Vincent

That probably means you can go snatch them all up!

Remember those Mario Kart 8 toys McDonald's was teasing? Looks like it's about time to head to your local franchise and ransack their toy bins for the one you like the best. Or ask politely for one. Whatever.

This commercial is actually just as obnoxious as ever, seeing as they've once again sorted the toys out as being "for boys" and included only male children in the commercial who irritate the living hell out of me, acting that excited over toys. Because these days kids just stare at the toys like they're stupid unless you can do something on a smartphone or tablet with them.

Today's "Kids, Get Off My Lawn" news post brought to you by Brittany and McDonald's Happy Meal toys. If you're a girl, you can get a Teenie Beanie Boo in your Happy Meal box! You can go to the Happy Meal site to see what that is, but I wouldn't recommend it. The music is grating and horrific.
