Whitehouse Post Gets a Taste of Gold with McDonald’s via DDB Chicago

The biting of the medal has become an iconic symbol of victory at the Olympics. Coincidentally, the iconic Chicken McNugget is sometimes used to celebrate life’s smaller victories. Whether you’re a world-class athlete or a child who’s scored his first goal…The greatest victories are celebrated with a bite.


“Celebrate with a Bite” is a nostalgic and spirited celebration of athletic triumph edited by Whitehouse Post‘s Meg Kubicka. The spot takes viewers on a ride through Olympic history, cleverly juxtaposing iconic medal-biting imagery with shots of fans across the world biting into McDonald’s Chicken McNuggets.
