McDonald's Photo Shoot: Why Burgers Look Different In Advertisements (VIDEO)

Why do the burgers in McDonald's advertisements look different than the ones you buy in a store? Tribal DDB Canada and McDonald's Canada's director of marketing Hope Bagozzi answer that question in a new video.

To find out, Bagozzi visits a local McDonald's eatery, buys a Quarter Pounder with Cheese and brings it to Watt Photostudios, the agency responsible for McDonald's creative merchandising for the last seven years. There, the burger is photographed alongside another Quarter Pounder with Cheese that had been prepped by Watt.

Same type of burger, two totally different looks -- the result of physical posturing, food styling tricks and computer-assisted digital touchups.

Watch the video below for a behind-the-scenes look at a McDonald's photo shoot.
