Boring hoardings :-p


Whenever you are on a freeway in US, one of the most common boards you'll see almost before every exit is this:




The reason is pretty obvious. There are thousands of McDonald's in US. So many that almost every exit has one. Unlike India that is. In India, McDonald's is considered sophisticated what with only 1 or 2 each in Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore (well, my info is limited to that, don't know if there are more :-p). So going to McDonald's is considered a big affair :-p. But in US, you have a McDonald's per galli galli. Its more like our pani puri gaadis. You have one in every street kind of a scenario.

So basically, if, say, there are 10 exits on a freeway, 9 of them are sure to have a McDonald's. Then pray what's the point in wasting so much money in 9 hoardings such as above? Its cheaper to put one hoarding before the exit that doesn't have the McDonald's. Something like this:




Hehehe :-D. My hands have been itching to do something like this ever since I saw the 1st board :-p :-D. By the way, if you are a McDonald's representative who is impressed with my idea and want to steal it, let me tell you buddy, that this idea is copyrighted :-p. If you really want it, then you can give me atleast some percentage of the money you've been wasting away on all the unwanted hoardings :-p ;-) :-D.

when mcD opened in B'Lore there was a snaking q outside it for weeks. For heaven's sake!! Decided to never step foot in there, ever. :)


Deeps retorted...

Soum, Its pretty simple actually. Using photo editing software :). Honestly, once you know even a bit of image editing, what I've done is one of the simplest things you can do ;-) :).

Biju, I had never been to US when the McD in Bangalore opened. Though I didn't really rush there the 1st day, I was excited when I went and I did think it was a big deal. Shows how ignorant I was {smiles sheepishly}. But to be truthful, I like the Indian McD much better than the US ones, after all you get more Veggie and tastier stuff in India ;-).


SID retorted...

McDy's in India is definitely much more than 1 or 2 in Delhi and Mumbai. There are plenty more but like you said going to a McDy here is like a Family Outing.

But yes here is B'lore there are still only 2 McDy's.


Deeps retorted...

Sid, recently when I was in Delhi, I saw 2 McDs. So I just guessed :). And there are 2 in Bangalore? I know only of the Forum one...
