McDonald’s is once again having to defend its highly stylised photography in its adverts after a new burger was called out for bearing little resemblance to the one featured in the ad.
Macca’s’ fans in the UK have taken to social media to roast the shortcomings of the fast food giant’s newly released Triple Cheeseburger.
Not only did the final product bear little resemblance to the one in the ad, a number of customers complained that their triple meaty treat came with only two patties.
One dissatisfied customer who shared a picture of their burger purchase – which admittedly did look rather worse for wear – wrote: “Shame mine didn’t look like the one in the advert.”
Another added: “The new triple cheeseburger was a bit of a disappointment compared to what was advertised.”
While a third said: “Erm…. this is the HEIGHT of disappointment!! I got given a DOUBLE instead?! W**!!! Bought at the Holborn branch…”
Others commented: “Wouldn’t bother!! State of that!!” and “But look at that, not even close! It’s awful and such a dog food.”
However a Macca’s spokesperson defended the burger saying it had proven “incredibly popular”.
The spokesperson telling UK’s The Mirror Online: “We have been pleased to see the great reaction from many of our customers across social media and in our restaurants.
“We appreciate that some haven’t arrived with customers in their best form, and we apologise for any disappointment,” the spokesperson added.
