Jem is truly outrageous!  Remember this song:

OH, NOWWW You remember!  And….if you grew up on Happy Meals and Ronald McDonald, you may or may not be jarred by a change to the clown (scary, to me…but, I hate clowns!)  According to the press release “Ronald is getting a new wardrobe which includes yellow cargo pants and a vest “accompanied by a red-and-white striped rugby shirt.”

He will also be sporting a “whimsical new red blazer” and a special bowtie for special events”  The makeover will extend to the McDonalds restaurants. Franchise owners will have the chance to “incorporate revamped in-store graphics, furniture” and other elements that feature Ronald McDonald. Advertisements will also soon feature the revamped clown. According to McDonald’s, Ronald McDonald, who was created in 1963, “can’t wait to connect with people through social media.” The WSJ notes that Ronald McDonald will not “get his own Twitter handle” but instead “the company will post comments attributed to him using the hashtag #RonaldMcDonald.” here’s the full press release:
