A popular food in the U.S are fast foods. Fast foods are foods that you can get from a restaurant like McDonald’s, Burger King, Taco Bell or Pizza Hut really quick and easy. Some of these fast foods are burgers, sandwiches, fries, tacos, pizza and more. Most of the fast foods are unhealthy and yet tons of people get them. We even have commercials to advertise these fast foods and show how great they are. Here is one of those commercials which in this case, is McDonald’s advertising their popular burger called the “Big Mac” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OwaCFTSTeHM. This commercial surrounds us with a fantasy which is how I see it. They show a perfectly well made “Big Mac” and showcase some of the great things about it. Meanwhile in reality, the “Big Mac” really looks like this.
It hardly looks perfect like the one on the commercial. This is one of the things that I find unfortunate. Why would companies like McDonald’s show us a fantasy of what the fast food is like whilst we know that it isn’t the same as you would see on TV. Personally, I order fast foods approximately every two weeks or so as they are quick to get when I’m busy. I try not to order to often as it is not a healthy thing to eat all the time. Well that is the popular food that we have here in the U.S. I sure hope it is different in other countries!
