Macca's inspires some meat-based creativity with Big Mac Chant

DDB managed to get a whole heap of New Zealanders to upload pictures of themselves imitating a beetle for a VW promotion last year. And now it's trying to get New Zealanders (and Australians) to upload videos of themselves that show them professing their love for the Big Mac in chant form. 

"Macca’s is laying down a challenge to the country: who can do the biggest, best and most original Big Mac chant? We want to find the ultimate Big Mac Chant by letting Big Mac lovers challenge each other to perform the chant in new and interesting ways," says the release. 

Chants can be uploaded at (each upload gets a free Big Mac) and an overseas getaway with six mates is up for grabs. There also daily and weekly hotel voucher prizes, courtesy of Wotif. 

Voters are also in line for some freebies, with two free Big Macs per week up for grabs.

The TVC was shot by Christiaan van Vuuren, AKA The Fully Sick Rapper and one half of The Bondi Hipsters.  

And here's where it all started back in 1984.
