What MacDonald's and "Os Mutantes" have in common?

Nothing. Absolutely nothing. Other than this tv commercial:

I grew up listening to Os Mutantes. To listen to them now brings me back wonderful memories. I hope you enjoy the video.


  1. I saw this commercial... And i was wondering how they came up with this song... really...
    I was intrigued...
    Do you know the story behind this commercial? I wanted to google it, but i always forget...
    I should go do that now, right?

  2. We saw the commercial during the Olympics and immediately looked at each other and said, "Is that Portuguese?" :)
    I downloaded it on itunes soon after. I really like it. I'm curious as to why McDonald's chose it. It is kind of sad that people will now associate it with Happy Meals though!
