    This add is helpful because it shows people that some of the food that McDonald's serves are unhealthy and can make you unhealthy. This is harmful because it makes people not go to McDonald's and can put them out of business. Also it does not show that some food from McDonald's are healthy.

    I think this is a little bit of an exaggeration because not everyone who eats McDonald's is going to look like that. It is beneficial though, because it shows what could possibly happen if someone eats too much of it.

    This piece of propaganda was made to make people feel a certain way and even change their view on McDonalds. Obviously, this picture is trying to express that there is no nutritional value in McDonalds, and it will only hurt you. It makes you rethink, "Are you really lovin' it?"

    This piece of propaganda is helpful and harmful in different ways. It is helpful to the millions of people who eat McDonalds too often and become unhealthy, because it shows the reality of eating too much fast food. However, it is harmful to McDonalds business and the other group of people who might feel offended because an ad portrays them negatively.

    This is a fat-phobic ad that demonizes overweight people and marginalizes them. Perhaps the creator could have shown someone having a heart attack due to high colesterol.
