McDonald's ad shows Christmas great escape

LONDON - A young man recreates World War II movie The Great Escape to get away from his Christmas charades torture and enjoy a burger.

The new ad for McDonald's seasonal menu was created by Leo Burnett.

The ad is backed by music from the Great Escape, and the ad's hero arrives at the restaurant by motorbike, in a tribute to a scene from the film.
