The handiwork of more than 23,000 British and Irish farmers who produce the ingredients that go into McDonald’s food is celebrated in this TV ad. The song is Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin’ from Oklahoma!, as sung by Gordon MacRae in the 1955 movie version of the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical. The version of the song in the ad seems to be a re-record, which means it has been specially recorded to fit the ad, although it sounds virtually identical to the Gordon MacRae version, which is available to download on iTunes.
