McRib Photos of McRib's place in America: Page Two
Here's more surprising photos
demonstrating just how famous the McRib was. Some are quite rare
and I was lucky to get them. Special thanks to Frank Capra Jr. and
Phillip Michael Thomas.
In between promo shots for
the series Miami Vice, Phillip Michael Thomas introduces Don Johnson to
a new sandwich, the McRib. Said Mr. Thomas, "I remember
thinking it was the best thing I had ever eaten."
With the long running time
for the classic, "It's a Wonderful Life", many scenes were cut. In
this one George treats Mary to a dinner strangely resembling the McRib.
Is this the prototype for our beloved sandwich?
Even the stuffy BBC was
not immune to the McRib craze of the late Eighties. Here in a scene
from a Sherlock Holmes episode, the great detective exclaims, "The solution
to our murder may very well lie in this singular sandwich."
In one of Clint Eastwood's
early Italian westerns, the man with no name guns down five bad guys- while
enjoying a McRib sandwich. Director Sergio Leone commented, "They should
have called them 'McRib' westerns. Clint enjoyed those sandwiches
night and day... and insisted the character eat them too!"
