No serieus its time for those 2 to leave the front page!!!
Glad someone agrees with me... all the other spots on the front page get updated frequently, why the hell have those two been on there for so long? Did they send Tom Fulp a check for extra time on there, or what?
(No disrespect intended toward Tom Fulp or any other NG administrator.)
All I noticed yesterday was the maroon background, I was wondering about it. Anyway, I think its safe to say IGN was a little overboard. I wonder who got put on the night shift making the new skin. haha
How can someone believe that was real? Maybe if you started it a day or two before, it would have been more believable
The really sad thing is there are athletes on the webpage. Let me ask a question to all of you: do you REALLY think any of these athletes would chow down McD's? Hell, look at Goldberg!! You don't get pecks like that by eating heart-attack inducing McGriddles!!!!
Blah I've been lied to once again. This is santa claus all over again... lol Good joke though about McD & Newgroundsz! I just wish I took a screenshot of it just for memories. Ah good times. *Wipes away a tear...*
Good job, almost tricked me when I saw the front page at first :P (was this one of your 'great ideas' you had with liljim?)
At ferst I really thought you were sponsered. Then i realized it was april fewls day :)
nice, that was good and actually i liked the site that way a bit but seriously though, u are a good prankster considering what u do every year.GJ
I knew that it was obviously a joke. But a part of me still wondered whether you would actually be temped by the money or not.
I guess if you really wanted a sole sponsor, then Macromedia would probably be the way to go.
yeah see.. i totally knew that.. o_O *looks around*
yeah... REALY i did!... ok fine w/e so i eat mcdonalds it's not a big deaL!!
hahaha. .. goldberg eatin a mcgriddle or sumtin
lol that'd be jokes... ..

1. Learn to spell.
2. I think it had to do with McDonals VS Burger King...
3. I say Wendy's wins, cause I found one of those cool kids meal toys. ITS A BURGER WINDUP TOY!
i thought you were telling the truth...i was so happy that all of the banners would go away except like the mcdonalds,o well im an idiot what am i to do...
That was an awsome gang!
Personally, I wouldnt care if NG changed the look of the page, as long as the content remained the same and there were no more pop ups... its too bad it can never happen. BTW, i kinda liked the red background, it was a fresh change

Some of you picked up on the inspiration for this joke - some time ago, McDonalds actually did buy a "total sponsorship" package with a website - IGN.com. They actually rebranded their entire site to reflect the golden arches, with pictures of McGriddles floating around in every corner. It was the most horrifying thing you could ever witness - imagine watching an episode of Seinfeld where all the characters dress in McDonalds uniforms, spend all their time in a McDonalds, and eat nothing but McDonalds. That's basically the equivalent.
It would be cool to have a sole sponsor for the site, but that just isn't the way to do it. The user backlash on IGN caused them to revert back to their original format. I'll attach a screenshot to this post, so you can see just how truly horrifying it was. :)
I remeber when they did that, IGN got a shitload of complaints because whenever you went to any of the game reviews an advertisement came up with mcdonalds on it. Needless to say they did quickly change back to their old colors of blue and black.
Dang I liked that layout. I eat ate mcdonalds yesterday good prank though.
