no matter what Taco Bell would like you to consider, only a lucky few have donned the large red shoes. just nine men have performed the role of Ronald McDonald. As seen in this new doc, extra males have walked on the moon than suitable up as the Golden Arches’ Chief Happiness Officer. Joe Maggard is one in all them.
formally, Maggard was once Ronald McDonald from 1997 to 2002, but as we find out within the Guardian‘s new short, you by no means really retire the Ronald. We meet Maggard poolside in Vegas as he prepares to go well with up for a stroll thru a local carnival. And we learn a number of issues.
Joe is just not fairly as cool or humorous as Ronald. Joe is extra laid again. He likes karaoke. he is additionally very dedicated to the fast-meals clown. The Ronald make-up is sealed on his face with sealer, which you could’t sweat it off. And it takes three hours to apply. that’s not within the movie because, as Joe says, “it might’ve been boring as shit.”
Maggard believes the clown is at all times somewhere inside him, and when he comes out Joe is long past. “you can take a seat there and say, ‘You psychotic bastard, it’s gettin’ a little freaky here!'” says Maggard. but it surely’s manner performing, man. Brando did it!
general, this serves as a three-minute reminder to McDonald’s that they most certainly will have to’ve requested for the suit again.
