By our News Team | 2022
High-profile names from TV, movies, music and social media feature in global ad that has 10 languages and four dialects.
Given that the soccer World Cup is one of the most followed events in the world – attracting millions of people to TV, news media and social media platforms – big-spending official sponsors and partners are understandably putting their best for forward.
Fast-food giant McDonald’s is one of those, with a number of high-profile names from the entertainment world fronting its advertising campaign, which the brand claims is its largest to date.

Among them is Senegalese-born TikTok superstar Khaby Lame, Emmy Award-winning actor Jason Sudeikis, American/Mexican Twitch streamer and YouTuber Edwin Castro, and South Korean girl group Itzy.
Along with billions of global soccer fans, the celebrities all ponder the universally recognised question: “Wanna go to McDonald’s?”
The campaign is multi-lingual and multi-cultural and is described as being social-first and “dedicated to all the ups and downs that go along with being a fan of the Beautiful Game — reminding us that whether it’s victory or loss, joy or heartbreak, McDonald’s is the world’s favourite place to come together”.
Campaign launches simultaneously in 75 markets
Explains McDonald’s in a press release: “This will mark the first time that more than 75 of our markets around the world are launching the same campaign at the same time. The magic of this global approach is that it invites a world of McDonald’s football fans to rally together through a unifying activation, while allowing them to experience the tournament in ways unique to their local cultures.”
Featuring 10 languages and four dialects, the film brings together an international array of football and McDonald’s superfans, as well as the celebrities.
A breathless statement from Morgan Flatley, the company’s Global Chief Marketing Officer, adds: “The reason our global McDonald’s System is excited about this campaign is because it just feels so true for our fans.
“While we may all [support] different teams this World Cup, what we can all agree on is that every celebration is a little bit sweeter with McDonald’s World Famous Fries, and every missed goal or yellow card stings just a little less when you’re enjoying a Big Mac.”
The campaign has been put together by ad agency Wieden+Kennedy New York, and continues McDonald’s use of celebrities to promote its brands and initiatives.
