McDonald's Grandma & Gardener Commercial

McDonald’s advertises its new Sweet N’ Spicy Honey BBQ Glazed Tenders in a new spot.

The ad opens with a grandma – played by Marianne Muellerleile – who says, while kniting a sweater, that she knows a thing or two about chicken and perhaps the reason she loves McDonald’s Sweet N’ Spicy Honey BBQ Glazed Tenders, which are placed on a table, in front of her, is because they’re sweet like her. The next shot features grandma outside, in the company of her friend, watching the gardener as he prunes the rose bushes. She adds that another reason she loves the new tenders from McDonald’s is that they’re spicy, just like her. At this point, the young gardener, who it turns out is wearing the sweater she knit, thanks her for the sweater.

The fast-food restaurant chain states that its tenders, which were added to the menu in August, for a limited time only, are made with all white meat chicken, hand-tossed and glazed to order so every bite packs bold flavor. The new Sweet N’ Spicy Honey BBQ Glazed Tenders start with McDonald’s Buttermilk Crispy Tenders, which are then hand tossed and glazed to order in a new irresistible sweet n’ spicy honey BBQ glaze, made with brown sugar and a variety of spices like chili pepper, garlic powder and paprika.

Sweet N’ Spicy Honey BBQ Glazed Tenders are available in orders of 4-piece, 6-piece and 10-piece servings.

In January, McDonald’s introduced a Classic Chicken Sandwich, made with all white meat chicken filet, topped with tangy Signature Sauce and tart pickles and served on a soft, steamed bun. In late 2017, McDonald’s also introduced the widely popular Buttermilk Crispy Tenders, and in mid-2016, McDonald’s introduced Chicken McNuggets made with no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.
