McDonald's Celebrates 60 Years In Germany With Homage Ad To 'The Sunshine Clown'

mcdonaldsRussian clown Oleg Popov, also known as "the Sunshine Clown," is the perfect example of someone who made his work his play and his play his work. McDonald's celebrates its 60th anniversary in Germany with a 1:30 ad that pays tribute to Popov, who still performs at the young age of 84. Viewers watch as Popov entertains an audience of fans young and old; once the show is over, Popov removes his makeup and drives to McDonald's.

"When you make people happy, you never get old," closes the ad, seen here, and created by Thjnk Tank, a Leo Burnett hybrid German agency. Alex Feil directed the spot.
