McDonald's gets delivered by Jerry Maguire.

Can McDonald's be too smart for its good? The above ad for their delivery services suggests so. Don't be mistaken, I am enamored with the ad! But I frankly think it will fly above the head of many of its viewers (and even target audience). See, the line "you had me at allo" (which is how Lebanese start a phone conversation) is a tribute to the famous "you had me at hello" at the end of the movie Jerry Maguire.
What's the rest of it? The guy shows up, you look at the bag in his hands and tell him: "You complete me" and then he replies: "show me the money".... Ooops, was that too much for just a simple delivery?
