A Lynchian profile?

What’s Ronald McDonald Up To Now? Let This Lynchian Video Tell You

By: Rebecca Vipond Brink / July 27, 2015
Happy Monday! Here’s a video of  Ronald McDonald, updating us on what he’s been doing with his life. In a truly Lynchian profile from The Guardian, Joe Maggard goes to the carnival in costume to give kids high-fives, sings a genuinely beautiful rendition of “Send In the Clowns,” and describes the Ronald costume as a superhero costume. Maggard feels that being given the duty to play Ronald McDonald is a sincere honor that he clearly takes seriously – and he’s tickled when interviewer John Dower points out that more men have walked on the moon than have played Ronald McDonald. I don’t know how this video will start your week, but it started mine with a great big “Welp, that exists in the world,” which isn’t so bad. Raise a cheeseburger to Joe Maggard!
