    Wendymay – The name of the latest McDs advert in the UK with the free glasses is called “Cross The Tracks” by Maceo & The Macks

    I’m trying to find out the name of the track & artist from the latest McDs advert in UK advertising the free coke glasses. Used to dance to it at Locomotion club nite in Kentish Town many years ago….

    THANK YOU! I KNEW it had to be a Postgate film, I thought it was Pogles wood, actually, so this is a relief, it’s been driving me mad for weeks.

    I was sorry to hear Vernon Elliot’s beautiful work being used to advertise Mcdonalds, but you have to admire the advertising execs who found this obscure music. Hearing this immediately took me back to my childhood.
