Christmas 2014 Lookback
Going Beyond The Big And Small Screen

Ever believed that your computer screen wasn’t big enough? McDonalds hit upon a novel solution - by downloading an app to you and a friend’s phones, you could place them next to each other and swipe hard to pull a virtual cracker. A giant video display in Piccadilly Circus then shows the cracker being pulled, and naturally there’s a prize of something from the McDonalds menu at the end of it all. Wonder if they’d allow you to play Candy Crush on it…?

Keep an eye on the background, and enjoy!
