    Funny My sister and I are from the Carribbean. During the 80′s with arrival of US fast food franchises to our shores, local commercials used food that looked exactly like the fare served in the resturants. Their only effort was to place the food on a revolving white paper/plastic plate with bad lighting in the ads.

    When we visited the states – It was a different story. The food in the commercials looked sooooo good. We tried to find that quality in the restaurants in vain (to our parents’ displeasure..they hated fast food). As kids we wondered how the Yankees made their food look so good without thinking of the thousands/millions of dollars that were spent on these ads.
