The golden arches are not just an M for McDonalds!! They represent boobies too!!!! Not kidding lol 😂According to a new report from BBC which you can read here they stated:
"The M stands for McDonald’s, but the rounded m represents mummy’s mammaries, acccording the design consultant and psychologist Louis Cheskin. In the 1960’s McDonald’s was prepared to abandon this logo, but Cheskin successfully urged the company to maintain this branding with its Freudian symbolism of a pair of nourishing breasts."
and that's not it! It may seem really funny but BBC went on to say:
"This may seem funny, but it is no laughing matter to the industrial psychologists and marketing consultants who are paid millions to find new ways to seduce us into buying by manipulating our unconscious desires.
The work of “hidden persuaders” in the psychology of marketing has been going on since the 1920s. Nowadays, there are companies who even hypnotise focus groups of consumers to reach their innermost associations.
Market research has found that children can recognize a brand logo before they can recognise their own name."
Wowza. I don't think I'll be able to drive past a McDonalds and see their famous Golden Arches the same way ever again 😭
