19 07 2008

According to the Miami Herald, Tamien Bain, a Miami man who held up a McDonald’s at gunpoint in 1994, is one of the five finalists in a contest for a new jingle promoting the Big Mac.

  1. Let him win the contest.
  2. Then, the second he gets his hands on the prize money, BAM! you have the Hamburglar steal it back at gunpoint.
  3. Capture the whole thing on video
  4. Title it “McFail”
  5. Put it on Fail Blog. Instant viral goodness.
