Plot / Description

"McDonald's Menu Song" 
In the late 1980's McDonald's offered a promotion where they gave away a flimsy record album with the chance to win one million dollars. If the "class" could make it through the entire song which included the entire McDonald's menu, the listener would win the prize. The class would try singing the long song and mess it up each time (except for the one winning record, of course).

Voiceover / Dialog / Script / Spoken Word

Good morning class. Today we're going to learn the McDonald's Menu Song, and give a listener out there a chance to win a million dollars. So, repeat after me. 
(Repeat after me.) 
 
No, no. 
(No, no.) 
 
Ah, okay. 
(Ah, okay.) 
 
Here it goes. 
(Here it goes.) 
 
(Lyrics) 
Big Mac, McDLT, a Quarter-Pounder with some cheese, Filet-O-Fish, a hamburger, a cheeseburger, a Happy Meal. McNuggets, tasty golden french fries, regular or larger size, and salads: chef or garden, or a chicken salad oriental. Big Big Breakfast, Egg McMuffin, hot hot cakes, and sausage. Maybe biscuits, bacon, egg and cheese, a sausage, danish, hash browns too. And for dessert hot apple pies, and sundaes three varieties, a soft-serve cone, three kinds of shakes, and chocolatey chip cookies. And to drink a Coca-Cola, Diet Coke, and orange drink, A Sprite and coffee, decaf too, A lowfat milk, also an orange juice. I love McDonald's, good time great taste, and I get this all at one place... 
 
Got it? 
(Got it!) 
 
Okay, now you do it. 
(Big Mac, McDLT, a Quarter-Pounder with some cheese, Filet-O-Fish, a hamburger, a cheeseburger... awwww.) 
 
Aww, too bad. Because if this class can do the McDonald's Menu Song all the way through, a listener out there is going to win $1000000. 
(Win a million dollars?!) 
 
Yeah, so let's try again. 
 
Big Mac, McDLT, a Quarter-Pounder with some cheese. 
(Big Mac, McDLT, a Quarter-Pounder with some cheese.) 
 
Filet-O-Fish, a hamburger, a cheeseburger, a Happy Meal. 
(Filet-O-Fish, a hamburger, a cheeseburger, a Happy Meal.) 
 
You're on a roll! Keep going!

Awww, we're so sorry. The person listening to this record didn't win the big prize, but tell them to check out those coupons. 
(Check out those coupons.) 
 
And get them down to McDonald's now. Save money on great McDonald's food, and give them more changes to win more prizes. 
(More prizes?) 
 
Yeah, and you guys... 
(Yeah?) 
 
Sing something else. 
 
Good times. Great taste. That's why this is our place. The good time, great taste of McDonald's.
