Here we go again with Mickey-D's. Now they're trying to update an old campaign and make a dopey Twitter contest out of it.

Some of you may remember Michael Jordan & Larry Bird playing "horse" with a basketball and the first guy who misses gets to watch the other guy eat the Happy Meal or whatever it was. Now they're using last season's Super Bowl quarterbacks throwing footballs through a goal post. I'm assuming these "Mighty Wings" they're playing for are chicken parts or some such.

Aren't these professional athletes like "gazillionaires?" All they gotta do is go to the freaking food court and buy more wings. Or are they closed? I don't know...

Are these the same Mighty Wings they had years ago?

I've got a better question, McDonald's: who gives a f*ck?

I don't understand this commercial. Why would Flacco bet on wings he already has in his possession? The whole point of any wager is to come out ahead if you win.

Our local McDonald's raised prices - same slop but now you pay more. Ermm
Never tried the wings, though I did like the chicken strips they discontinued a while ago.

Come on, guys. You're ballers, you got money. Leave that McSwill for the kiddies and go get some real wings from a real wing place.

Really!  That'd be like me buying a Corvette, and then giving you a chance to have it for free.  Why would I do that?  What do I get if I win?  The car that's already mine?

The commercials suck but the wings are actually pretty good for what they are. The ones I got yesterday were crispy, pretty spicy and huge.

Mighty Wings are AWESOME! I haven't seen this commercial though so I'd guess the commercial is horrible.

This newer ad is even dumber. They're taking a page from NFL Films' "Football Follies,"  but these jokes totally fall flat. Steve Sabol is rolling over in his grave.

Instead of noting just how much that I hate Kaepernick and how he doesn't even deserve these endorsements, photoshoots and praise, I'll just say that Flacco would've won anyway.

But yeah, this campaign should've been done with two different QBs instead of these guys because their acting is kinda bad (especially evident on the "Who Stole the Mighty Wings" website) and their creditability at the moment is... well...

Anyway, I know who stole the Mighty Wings though...


It was Larry Bird

At the end, doesn't it look like Flacco is saying " that was bullsh*t"?
