The worst thing in the world to tour Canberra maccas

By johnboy - 21 January 2013 35

CityNews have the horrifying news that a “1D World” truck will be dragging One Direction merch around Canberra McDonalds outlets later in the week.

It’s nice that even though the over gelled tossers can’t be arsed bringing their show to town they still want to fleece the kids.

Above is a video that’s had a ludicrous 38 million views for those who haven’t heard the fuss.

So what are they selling: tubs of One Direction-endorsed Vaseline and ‘slightly’ used Gerbils?

With free gaffer tape?

That’s a bit harsh.

But then you can bet yer booties that the teenage girls who are a big fan of them now will look back in 10 years time and wonder what the fuss was all about.

Remember Spice Girls? Backstreet Boys? Bros? The Monkees? The Beatles?
Me neither.

I think the Beatles may be in a slightly different bracket to the rest of them…

Just a slight difference.

It’s Simon Cowell that’s pushing all this crap and taking most of the cash…not a bunch of 19 yr old lads, though who knows what the future will bring.?
One of them comes from my home town in England…not a great place really.
Just after they’d been mobbed and treated like Take That in Sydney around last Eastertime, he was spotted back in the local rundown shopping centre in England, wandering around on his own unmolested.
A local news reporter recognised him and asked him what he was doing. He said his mum had sent him into town to get some potatoes for their tea. Thought that was quite cool.

It was very nearly a passable gag about drive-throughs moving in one direction.

Ah you might be surprised to know that The Beatles are the most commercially successful and critically acclaimed act in the history of pop music who have sold a certified 250 million units,47 million more than Elvis.There have also been claims that total sales have topped 1 billion so they make one erection look very limp.

Ooooh – let’s show how sophisticated and smart we are by bagging commercialised entertainment. I feel better already!

If JB had simply bagged “1D” for existing you might have a point. But a specific truck, touring ’round with the stated intention of selling branded stuff to fans is far enough to the wrong side of the “commercialised entertainment” balance point that I don’t feel smarmy in the slightest.

I hate it when people steal cars just to burn them out, but I really want to put that poor TR4 out of it’s misery.

The idea this monstrosity will be in Dickson on Australia Day makes me sick.

Your jimmies are to easily rustled JB. That’s really only of concern to the people who intend to hit up the Dickson McDonalds on Australia day.

Personally, I’m bemused as to why anyone would go to Mac-shack of all places to buy overpriced merch, when they can just go online and buy knockoffs for a fraction of the price.

Bigger things to worry about on Australia Day than this Jb.

Imagine how hard we will all laugh at this in coming years after their star inevitably crashes and burns (or it might be now, who knows?).
