Let’s watch two Canadian car-thievin’ lovebirds get nabbed in a McDonald’s drive-thru

This video has all the makings of a good yarn. Intrigue. Romance. Fast car sounds. Reference to a Canadian McDonald’s menu item called the Junior Chicken. A twist. Black and white cinematography we’ll call atmospheric. Surprising calm in the face of impending doom. Use of the word/sound “eh.”

It’s the complete package. I’d call Doomed McDonald’s Bait Car Romance one of the best films of 2018, but it’s from 2014, so instead I’ll have to just keep talking about how good Roma is.


Imagine how pissed you’d be if you were the car behind this one and all you wanted was a damned McRib.

One of the funniest things ever was when on the Bait Car show someone stole the car full-well knowing that it was the Bait Car. People were yelling at him from the sidewalk that it was a Bait Car but he didn’t care because he wanted to get on TV.
