Behind the Scenes: McDonald’s Big N’ Tasty and Cheese Shaker Fries Commercial

with 5 comments

How much work goes into shooting a McDonald’s commercial? A LOT. Many people don’t realize what goes on behind the scenes to create a great video or in this case, a commercial – the investment of time, people and gear. This 30-second television commercial was filmed at various locations around Singapore for almost an entire day! Talk about professionalism, dedication and hard work from both production crew and actors under such weather conditions.

Traffic police were hired to facilitate the movement of the traffic at situations like this and ongoing cars need to stop specially for me! It’s definitely a once in a lifetime opportunity in Singapore where impatient people like to honk at others for god-knows-what-reason.

The actors took instructions from the director and went with the flow. We couldn’t see the different takes during the filming process but it was cool because it actually turned out pretty great. My role was quite simple – to look hot and distract the guys in the car. It might seem really easy to many others but… try looking ‘hot’ under the hot weather and catwalk down the slope in 5-inch heels! Filming at this location took about 3 hours starting from about 12 noon and it’s a blessing to have very little makeup on.

The guys really took great care of me and it’s a pleasure working with all of them.  In case you are wondering what we had for lunch that day… It’s not McDonald’s haha Enjoy my very first television commercial! It’s feeding time bros – Official McDonald’s Big N’ Tasty and Cheese Shaker Fries commercial ;)

3rd May 2010

Thank you for all the lovely email responses and comments given on my blog, facebook and twitter. The recipe can be found on Wonder Chef’s Fan Page. For those who do not have a Facebook account and not able to access the recipe, you can substitute the usual Mascarpone Cheese 500g with 3 packets of Tofu. Yes, it is that simple :)
