The ad is the work of DDB Stockholm. It makes the menu items the stars (and of course Big Mac the headline act). Unusually for this kind of client, it is purely typographic with no product shots and no distinctive McDonald’s yellow and red colour scheme.

The ads are running near major music events around Sweden. Expect to see them again in all those “Typography for Advertising” awards schemes categories next year.
