McDonald’s unveiled a new mascot named “Happy,” an anthropomorphic box with a huge set of teeth.According to the company, the character, which was originally introduced in France in 2009 and unveiled stateside on Monday, is supposed to bring “fun and excitement” to kids’ meals and be an ambassador for balanced and wholesome eating.
Happy’s grin is perhaps just a tad too much for the age of memes and social media. What you think about this overly “Happy mascot?
Below you will see what people said about it on Twitter.
