Remember the Hamburgler from McDonald’s? The weird dude in the striped outfit and flat-brimmed hat? Well, hes back and he’s creeping people the hell out.
You see, the Hamburgler used to be kind of a cartoonish character so despite the fact that he spoke kind of weird (what the hell is he saying?) he was still a valued member of the McDonaldland community.
Now he’s back, but this time he’s a real guy and whoa… he doesn’t look like a guy who’d beinto stealing hamburgers, he looks more like he’d like to create a weapon of mass destruction in an X-Men movie.
Naturally, Twitter took his introduction very well.
