In Nuremberg, there's a Burger King in a former Nazi transformator building:
Take that, evil McDonald's!
I know how much you fuckers love some evil McDonald's; this one is in Bray, Ireland
🎶 ba da ba ba ba 🎶
yes yes! /sub/hailcorporate ✋
That's a beautiful Mcdonalds, never thought id say that.
you'd think they could have done a better job getting rid of der Eagle there. The Germans (for better and worse) are pretty effective when they put their minds to it.
There's a fucking Burger King in Germany with the shadow of the fucking reichsadler (nazi eagle) still on it, and I think the bizarre juxtaposition is amazing and needs to be preserved forever!
Built in 1937 by architect James Hastie Wardrop, the beautiful curved building with sprawling balconies was once the United Kingdom Hotel.
Like seriously, no one thought, "Hey maybe we should throw a Burger King sign over it."? Blows my mind haha
This is a beautiful McDonald’s, I absolutely love it. The Crest is beautiful as well.
hey leave bray alone
The only thing evil here is that such a beautiful building houses a fast food.
My god... Nobody ever pressure washed it or thought to cover it up... I just don't get it. You couldn't even play Wolfenstein 3D in Germany because of the Nazi imagery so how the hell does does that last 60 years and nobody thought to get rid of it?
Very art deco
"You vill haff it OUR vay, Schweinhund!"
This is in my home town. It used to the be the Town Hall. It was very controversial when it was turned into a McDonald's.
This isn't a Columbus statue situation, this is a remnant of a Nazi symbol decorating a building, a building now used as a fast food restaurant. It seems appropriate to cover/remove entirely.
Evil? This place looks jolly as fuck. I'm imagining it's run by elves in the North Pole.
this one is in Bray, Ireland
Bray is a bit of a kip, no denying it. Only good thing to come out of bray is the dart.
Bray is a bit of a shithole, but the need for townhalls has sort of diminished in Ireland over the years. People go there for the beach during the summer so I guess making it a Macky Ds makes sense to a degree.
It really bothers me that the arches don't make a complete "M"
I should remind myself to take this photo back with me if I ever visit 1930-40s Germany.
There are some people I should show this too.
For me, it's the McChicken. The best fast food sandwich. I even ask for extra McChicken sauce packets and the staff is so friendly and more than willing to oblige. One time I asked for McChicken sauce packets and they gave me three. I said, "Wow, three for free!" and the nice friendly McDonald's worker laughed and said, "I'm going to call you 3-for-free!". Now the staff greets me with "hey it's 3-for-free!" and ALWAYS give me three packets. It's such a fun and cool atmosphere at my local McDonald's restaurant, I go there at least 3 times a week for lunch and a large iced coffee with milk instead of cream, 1-2 times for breakfast on the weekend, and maybe once for dinner when I'm in a rush but want a great meal that is affordable, fast, and can match my daily nutritional needs. I even dip my fries in McChicken sauce, it's delicious! What a great restaurant.
Was the town hit by some economic hard times or what? Why did the town hall get turned into a McDonald's?
Looking closer I don’t think it is a stain. It looks like a full-on impression in the masonry
Is Macky D’s the way they call it in Ireland? We say Mickey D’s in the US
Might be because Mickey is slang for penis in Ireland.
Because Europe has a much richer and older architectural history than America. These McDonald's location were something before McDonalds moved in. In the US they specifically build the building for a McDonalds.
Not quite evil, but nonetheless, an interesting McDonald's: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Denton_House_%28New_Hyde_Park%2C_New_York%29?wprov=sfla1
I'll take a double McLiver menu with large fangs and a "cherry" coke. Do you have any available coffin at the moment? Your blinds aren't thick enough, I'm literally dying
"Come in! We'd love to have you for dinner! MUHUHUHUHAHAHAHAHAHAHA"!
Yeah, this looks like one of the best ways American capitalism can metaphorically teabag Nazism.
Eat McDonalds, fellow consumer.
I was thinking of DCI Barnaby and his sidekick, but Sherlock works, too.
Oh I get it. It's evil because it's in the English countryside and all the murders happen or are planned there, and the only thing saving one half of the population from the murderous other half is a soft-spoken yet competent English detective.
