Maybe it's a reference to the recent election there?

The True Finns party campaigned on a refusal to participate in the loan to Portugal or other Euro countries with problems. They greatly increased their share of the vote to get third place.

Among the rhetoric of the True Finns leader was this pearl: "Finnish cows must be milked in Finland and we shouldn't send their milk for charity outside the borders of this country."

Is MacDonalds pushing for a milk redistribution?

Maybe it was a stretch, I know, but hey, there has to be some sense in an add, right?

tres simple! it is a cow looking back, between its legs, seeing its udder, the two teats indicate the double milk (i.e., that you now get two teats of milk rather than one).

uncut... you silly boy! :-)

This is what Sisley did back in 2001, I think.

Would that be a good ad for a milkshake?

why? a take on kids looking at the world upside-down through their legs, the playfulness of youthful carefreeness in seeing the world that way, and transferring that playfulness and joy to the cow, now giving two teats of milk.

the two teats in the v-shape also remind one of the two fingers raised as a 'peace' or 'victory' sign - again, both positive symbols.

Maybe since the other two udders are deflated, it's a subexted commentary on what eating too much McD's will eventually do to your man's *performance*.

But they told McDonald's "Sure, it's a peace sign! Exactly what we were intending!" *snicker*
