Egyptian McDonald's ad finds good use for Meat Loaf ballad

Posted on Tue Jul 6 2010

In perhaps the best use ever of the Meat Loaf song “I Would Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That),” this Egyptian ad for McDonald’s shows a glamorous couple, the male half apparently so devoted to his paramour that he’ll dive into the ocean, buy her an expensive dress and even push her car uphill. But when it comes to grabbing his fries, it’s "No way, José" or whatever the local variant is. The woman looks heartbroken at the end, but maybe she should heed the advice of another Meat Loaf song: Two out of three ain’t bad.
