LOL Faux Sucks.


Why are these news anchors smiling? Because they've been given cups filled with a solid plastic material that resembles coffee.

Two cups of McDonalds iced coffee (BUY!) sit on the Fox 5 TV news desk, a punch-you-in-the-face product placement (BUY!) to chase down your morning news.
Theyve been on the Las Vegas station set for about two weeks, following the lead of a few TV stations across the country, and theyre still looking every bit as frosty and tantalizing (BUY!) as they were the first day you laid your eyes on them.

But wait, heres the best part: Theyre not real. Fake coffee on the real news, two plastic cups permanently filled with some kind of bogus drink. The anchors arent even supposed to acknowledge them, McDonalds reps explain.
