No One Can Unsee The NSFW Design On This McDonald's Christmas Cup

Warmest greetings indeed.

Designing a Christmas coffee cup doesn’t seem like it should be that challenging. Or at the very least not be the cause of an annual festive PR balls up.

But now McDonalds have followed the likes of Starbucks, and become the latest food brand to come under fire for their somewhat confusing creation. 

McDonalds recently launched their seasonal peppermint mocha in a red paper cup, complete with a white pair of mittens [right]. 

But it seems just a slight alteration to the drawing turns it into something entirely different (you might want to check your boss isn’t looking over your shoulder before you continue scrolling). 

Sam Sykes shared this photograph to Twitter showing the cup reimagined, as a “guy spreading his cheeks open” and now we cannot unsee the awkwardness.

Perhaps it was just intended as a tribute to the Turner Prize exhibition

Either way, McDonalds might just want to stick to featuring Ronald McDonald in the future.
