McDonalds Proud Papa

McDonalds brought in “Proud Papa”, a commercial from April 2010, to show during the 2011 Super Bowl. The ad features two brown bears, father and son (Kevin), who head off to McDonald’s to celebrate a great school report. By McDonald’s we mean the closest car with passengers enjoying takeaways.
