Created by We Are Unlimited, this national “Speechless” campaign introduces McDonald’s new fresh beef, cooked-to-order Quarter Pounders.  

Inspired by the idea that words can’t describe the pure delight, the feeling, and the taste of a hot and juicy burger, the “Speechless” creative leverages celebrities and technology to speak for customers eating McDonald’s new hotter & juicier, 100% fresh beef Quarter Pounder. The burger tastes so good the customer is literally speechless.

In this spot, Charles Barkley speaks for Susan, who’s stricken speechless by her fresh McDonald’s burger.

Nick Ball of MJZ directed this :30 titled “Barkley-Susan” (and several others in the campaign featuring Gabrielle Union and John Goodman as the voices for speechless burger eaters).
