Why Does Fast Food Never Look The Same As Its’ Advertised?


(PCM) Have you ever taken the time to notice that when you grab some quick food to go at your favorite fast food spot it never quite looks the same as it does in those appetizing and enticing photos you see in the advertisements?

Well, a man by the name of Greg Benson of Mediocre Films decided to do a fun little social experiment and put several fast food retailers to the test of making their food resemble that which is shown in their advertisements.

Benson visited McDonald’s, Burger Kings, Wendy’s and Jack In The Box and placed a simple order at each restaurant. He then compared what the food order he received looked like against that which was shown in that particular restaurants advertisements.

Nearly all of his initial orders were no where even close to appearing how they appeared in the advertisements, so Benson goes up to the counter and requests that his food be remade to appear more like the food in the advertisements. All of the restaurants complied with his request and the second time his food arrived they all did a much, much better job and the food more closely resembling what appears in the ads.

Benson’s video experiment has received over 4 million views on YouTube since it has been posted and we are sure it is going to have people everywhere taking a second look at the food they are receiving from many of these fast food establishments. ┬áThe results of the video really make us question why someone has seriously not looked into this before now. Something tells us fast food restaurant complaint lines are going to be rather busy in the near future.
