Flashback Friday: Ernie Whitt’s McDonald’s Commercial
Have you ever been sitting in your local McDonald’s enjoying a nice McChicken sandwich, only to look up briefly and see Ernie Whitt across the restaurant? Apparently this scenario happened for one young lady.
For this week’s Flashback Friday, we take a look back at Ernie Whitt’s McDonald’s commercial from 1986.
This isn’t the first time that a Blue Jays player has been featured in a McDonald’s commercial, as George Bell and even Bobby Cox have appeared in spots for Mickey D’s.
The most incredible part of this commercial is that there was a time where Blue Jays caps were only $1.99. Heck, you can’t even get a large fries for that much these days!

That hat's way too small for you, Ernie.
Such is the side affect of those snap-back caps. I guess one size doesn't fit all!
I HAVE THAT.
Wicked! Be sure to hang on to it … sooner or later it'll be worth moderately more than it's original price!
Hey, my dad got one also! He's a true Blue Jay fan and customized hat collector. He was pretty sure he kept it somewhere in the house. Yes, he is.
The only thing I have in my home right now from Mcdonald's is, the party hat they are giving away whenever they are holding parties and event in their food chains. I remember improvising and doing a party hat by myself by using some used folders at home, I'm still kid wayback then.
You managed to dig up this Mcdonald ad, which seems to be a decades and decades old now. You're good on tracking or must I say, the owner of the video is just good at securing things.
RetroOntario is where it's at … lots of great Blue Jays commercials over there!
