SOPHIE’s “Lemonade” is a great song, and apparently McDonald’s thinks so too. SOPHIE is already sort of a soft drink salesman, and his music has been featured in commercials before. And now — of course — McDonald’s is using the song to sell … lemonade. Hilariously, the new ad uses SOPHIE’s aggressively artificial music to promote the “real”-ness of their fresh lemonade. Watch it below via Pitchfork; the user who uploaded it seems to be under the mistaken impression that it’s referencing the Amy Schumer sketch.
No fake shock about Sophie in the McDonald's commercial please
