Providing you the full scoop
What loves McDonald's, has created a Big Mac jingle and was arrested at age 14? Fans... you won't believe this one.
A few weeks ago McDonald's joined MySpace to create a new jingle for the 40th anniversary of the Big Mac. The original song -- two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce... yadda yadda -- was created in 1974. Entries for the jingle drew over one-thousand user-created songs and videos. The winning jingle would become the official new song and featured in a McDonald's Big Mac TV commercial.
Turns out 29 year old Tamien Bain, who held up a McDonald's at gunpoint when he was just 14, was convicted as an adult and served 12 years in prison. He's also one of five finalists in the jingle competition: http://www.myspace.com
