McDonald's McFizz Cups Are NSFW

Hat tip, The Wall Street Journal.:

Overheard: McDonald’s Japan is red-faced after releasing cups aimed at children that have lewd images when held a certain way



MCDONALD’S JAPAN MCFIZZ CUPS ARE NSFW
With a tilt, the innocent boy and girl imagery on the restaurant chain's cups takes a less-than-chaste turn

There’s a bit of controversy bubbling over cups for McFizz, an innocent-sounding drink sold by McDonald’s in some international markets.

The sparkling drinks themselves, which have come in a variety of brightly-colored flavors over the years, aren’t what's stirring up the fuss—it’s the cups McDonald’s Japan is serving them in.

The various designs depict a boy on one side of the clear cup and a girl on the other, as posts from McDonald’s Japan show.

When the colorful beverage is finished, it can look as if a boy on one side of the cup and a girl on the other are sharing a kiss on the lips. However, when the cups are tilted slightly, things get frisky in a hurry.

夏の冷たくて甘~いといえば、 #マックフロート 🤤🍦渇いたのどを潤しながら、ソフトクリームのやさしい甘さも味わえて、体も心も癒されるような…✨

フィズしたいけど甘いデザートもほしい😖
だったら今日はフロートしない?
#ひと夏のマックフィズ

Holding the cups at different angles suggests some imagery that’s NSFW, and definitely NSFM (not suitable for McDonald’s).

Ad Age hasn't seen the cups in person. So we'll leave it to you to interpret the images, as others have done in recent days on Twitter and in posts such as these from SoraNews, Kotaku, Mashable and The Takeout.
