This McDonald's ad shows what happens when you don't vote

McDonald's has established itself as a common household name in India and it is using its reach well.

A new advertisement by the fast-food giant encourages people to go out to vote during the ongoing elections.

With the ongoing 2019 Lok Sabha elections, McDonald's utilizes a funny yet powerful analogy that's better suited for food-obsessed Indians.

Read on for more details.

In the ad, McDonald's executives impose their choice on customers

In the video advertisement, a McDonald's executive tells incoming customers that their choice of meal isn't available, imposes their choice over the customer, or informs them that theirs is the only one meal available.

Baffled and some frustrated customers demand their right to choose, which is when the executive informs them that they relinquished that right when they decided against voting.

Here is the brilliant ad

In the 2014 elections, 280 million Indians did not vote

The advertisement drives the point home that by choosing not to vote, eligible voters are basically settling for what's already being served, literally!

In the 2014 elections, 280 million Indians didn't vote. Interestingly, 2014 also recorded the highest voter turnout ever at 66.4%.

Of course, if the EVMs malfunction, as several reports across states suggest, you have to settle for those metaphorical stale fries.
