Visitor Tips and News About McD's Performing Moon - Mac Tonight
Moon character in a tux sitting at a grand piano. In McDonald's on Rt. 12.[Dawn Jackson, 06/11/2011]
Though now he appears like some lonely lunar Elephant Man, his origins largely forgotten, Mac Tonight was part of a "late hours" ad campaign for McDonald's that appeared between 1986 and 1997. These displays must have been expensive, because the few establishments we've seen them at never seem to want to give up the classy touch of a dapper piano-playing moon.
