Ronald McDonald Gets A Makeover and We Look Back [VIDEO]

McDonald’s made a big announcement yesterday. Ronald McDonald, the company’s iconic clown mascot, is joining the world of twitter. Ronald won’t have his own twitter handle, but instead will tweet pictures, videos, and more using the hashtag #ronaldmcdonald.

“Selfies … here I come! It’s a big world and now, wherever I go and whatever I do … I’m ready to show how fun can make great things happen,” McDonald’s said that the clown said.

On top of the new adventure in social media, Ronald is also getting a new outfit. He will be in a series of commercials wearing new cargo pants and a vest.

In thinking about all this new stuff for Ronald McDonald, maybe we should take a look back. It is Throwback Thursday after all!

It all started back in 1963 when Willard Scott (yes, the weather man) put on the clown make up and was the first Ronald McDonald. Here’s a couple videos that will either make you nostalgic, or make you more afraid of the clown than you ever were of pink slime.
