Plot / Description

This 1980's ad for McDonald's features Jason Alexander doing a song and dance in his pre-Seinfeld days when he had hair.


Hey! You say you're getting tired of lettuce and tomato hamburgers in this town that don't quite make it. 
You say that just once you'd like your hamburger hot and your lettuce and tomato cool and crisp all at the same time. 
Well I say, you got it. I'm talking about McDonald's new lettuce and tomato hamburger - the McDLT. 
I'm talking quarter pound of beef on the hot, hot side 
And the hot stays hot 
The new McDLT (hot, hot) 
Crisp lettuce and tomato on the cool, cool side 
And the cool stays cool 
The Mc-D-L-T (cool, crisp) 
The beef stays hot, the cool stays crisp 
Put it together you can't resist 
The hottest taste, the coolest dish 
Keep the hot, hot 
Keep the cool, cool 
Hot Mc and the D 
Cool crisp LT 
Mc D LT 
It's a good time for the great taste of McDonald's 
Could be the best lettuce and tomato hamburger ever.
