CHICAGO – It’s a way of making tongues move.
An award-winning director of McDonald’s in Canada apparently revealed a bit of the little-known company history in a recent interview with CBC, where he confidently said that Grimace – the tall, purple, anthropomorphic thing hanging out with Ronald McDonald – is supposed to be a huge taste bud.
“It’s a huge taste bud, but a taste bud nonetheless,” Bates told the outlet.
Bates, who operates a McDonald’s in Windsor, Ont., Was interviewed by the CBC after receiving McDonald’s Canada’s “Outstanding Manager of the Year” award in recognition of his efforts during the pandemic in particular. But it was his reveal on Grimace that really got people talking.
After Bates dropped this nugget of knowledge during his CBC interview, social media began to resonate with their shocked and at times horrified reactions.
McDonald’s, however, had previously suggested that Grimace might actually be a swollen purple taste bud. During Twitter Exchange 2014, the company responded to a question about the character, telling a curious customer that Grimace was either “the embodiment of a milkshake or a taste bud.”
Either way, Grimace has evolved considerably since his debut in 1971. Featured as “Evil Grimace,” the character described as a McDonaldland villain (with four arms) was singularly focused on stealing McDonald’s milkshakes, according to the reports. first television commercials. Over the years, he finally lost his craving for milkshakes (and two of his arms) and became Ronald McDonald’s best friend.
