I can't quite find where it is now, but not too long ago we had a thread about YouTube videos aimed at small children.

What I've recently noticed is that a lot of the popular channels have episodes about Happy Meals.


Is it plausible that many of these channels are actually covertly owned by McDonald's as a way of getting around the traditional bans on marketing junk food to children and to get them seeing Happy Meals as desirable from an early age?

It's certainly possible, though perhaps McDonald's is just too fucking big to need to advertise to kids directly at this point too.

I wouldn't be surprised if they were behind it, but equally it could just be that youtubers know that kids love happy meals and making videos about them is disgustingly profitable.

Either way it's a cynical exploitation of kids.

Happy Meals aren't covered by the junk food advertising ban, because a majority of the meal options are low in fat, salt and sugar.

No child on this planet is going to choose mineral water and a bag of fruit or veg as part of a Happy Meal when they can get off their tits on Coke or a milkshake.

It's not particularly hard to teach a child that chips or Coke are bad for you.

I wouldn't even say it's covert, it's probably just standard corporate sponsorship. Or soulless YouTube channels using pop culture trash for easy money.

I don’t think Maccy’s has anything to do with this, companies like that are all about brand control and this doesn’t exactly fit with the Starbuck’s with Chips style they’re going for right now.

I agree, but the advantage of guerilla marketing is that if it doesn't look like it's coming from your company, it doesn't particularly harm your brand image, it's just some YouTuber talking to kids about chicken nuggets.

I'd imagine the type of parent who lets pre-school children loose on YouTube isn't the type of parent to lecture them on why they should pick carrot sticks over chips.

Wait until you become a parent and then try lecturing a pre-school aged child on anything you shit brained peasant.

"Peasant" is an interesting choice of insult. Are you Michael Owen?

Mate, if you stop shoving your phone at your kid to shut them up then they'll actually have an attention span and be capable of listening to you.

It's painfully obvious that you've never spent any time around a preschool aged child, and good for you. Children of that age aren't mini adults and don't process information in the same way we do; "Do as I say no as I do" doesn't work.

If you don't want your kids whining to use a phone then don't have a phone in your hand while you're around them. If you don't want your kids begging you for McDonalds then don't lecture them about fucking carrot sticks you wannabe Jamie Oliver cuntfaced cunt, just - and here's a wild thought - don't go to fucking McDonalds.

Children of that age are like little mimics, they see what you do and they copy it. All of it. One massive factor in giving up drinking for me was because when we went to the supermarket and he'd want to go putting things in the trolley, he'd eventually wind up in the booze aisle trying to pick up a bottle of wine for mummy and daddy.

Was that the sort of example I wanted to set my son? No. So I stopped sticking bottles of wine in my trolley, what I didn't do was sit him down with a self-help leaflet on alcohol abuse and a recent paper from the lancer for a proper fucking lecture on the risks of alcohol BECAUSE HE'S A FUCKING CHILD YOU SHIT BRAINED NUMPTY .

Straight on.

My father was always lecturing me about the dangers of smoke and drugs, while chain smoking and popping benzo like candies. I kept myself drugs and cigarette free, but only because I was so disgusted with him that I did everything to not follow his example.

In short, you've agreed with the point made in >>4675 about parenting, but you've decided to do it in a roundabout way where you get to go off on one about it.

Honestly though let's talk about how this advice is applicable to at least 95% of all people.
