Character-Driven Advertising Quiz: Name the Restaurants of These Fast-Food Mascots!
I don’t know about you, but I remember some pretty crazy things. Things that are using up precious brain space where other more important things could be, like how to change my car’s oil or knowing why the sky is blue (I’ve been told several times and this information has yet to stick).
For whatever reason, instead of remembering these valuable bits of information, I instead remember what shoes I wore on my first day of third grade and my email address when I was in middle school. Maybe you have some silly things that you remember too, but don’t even realize it.
I’m hoping that you do. And more specifically, I’m hoping you remember which popular fast-food restaurant each of the following characters is (or was) the spokesperson for. Fair warning though, not every single one of these mascots is still used today. This could play to your advantage since some were only used in the 1970s while others were only used briefly in the early 2000s. Good luck! And…GO!
