McDonalds Cheer for China

DDB Shanghai has won the Gold award at the MAA Globes Awards for the “Cheer for China” campaign developed for McDonalds during the Beijing Olympics. The award continues the Gold awarded at the China Effies in 2008.

McDonalds Cheer for China campaign


As an official sponsor of the Beijing Olympics McDonald’s were keen to find a way to join every Chinese person to the games. The McDonald’s slogan, “I’m loving it” was adapted to become “I’m loving it… China Win!”, a cheer to be used throughout the country.

McDonalds Cheering Station

A “cheering station” was designed, complete with webcam, microphone, interactive screen and web access. Every customer who went into the station could record their own video of a cheer for China and transfer the results to the McDonald’s China web site.

    Hi,

    I am an editor with Pearson Education South Asia and would like to use the image of the cheer box in this post for a marketing textbook I am currently working on, as an example of how McDonald’s harnessed online influence.

    Please contact me at yiling.neo@pearson.com for further discussion.

    Thanks!

    Warmest regards,
