The Big Mac is a big deal. For over half a century, it’s evolved from an innovative product to a cultural icon. Despite that, research showed that Gen Z wasn’t talking about the Big Mac as the icon it is. We needed to change that perception. If you’re an icon, you shouldn’t have to say it. So rather than telling Gen Z how iconic the Big Mac is, we showed them by partnering with a variety of Gen Z makers to show how the Big Mac could inspire their culture in a way that no other burger could. But to drive home the message, we did it without ever showing the burger at all.
