This McDonald’s Tweet!
Published October 8th, 2014, the McDonald’s Corporation somehow came across Cyclone Football’s Tweet promoting their cartoonish gold uniforms. Traditionally, Iowa State wore red uniforms with gold accents but these flipped the script, inverting the yellow and the red. The result was eerily similar to what Horace E. Cow and Christopher Polybend had created two years prior. The most unfortunate aspect was that the uniforms looked suspiciously like the mascot of the world’s biggest fast food restaurant:
For years, the low hanging fruit of insults was calling Iowa State the “Cyclowns” as they had the misfortune of having the same colors as McDonald’s and like clowns, they’d embarrass themselves for our pleasure. McDonald’s actually replying to this tweet was surreal. It was like when Bo Pelini actually came out onto the field with a cat. Or when Country House won the Kentucky Derby despite not actually winning the Kentucky Derby. Or when a grown man got kicked out of a girl's high school basketball game.
Now, we're unclear about the logistics of how a McDonald's Tweet will actually make selections on College Gameday but that's up to Rece, Kirk, Desmond, David, and whatever is left of Lee Corso to figure out.
College GameDay: I'm lovin' it!
