They might have wanted to get into the spirit of Halloween, but some customers have spotted some suspicious “broom” decorations that they think are a bit of an X-rated.
McDonald’s customers have taken to social media to poke fun at the chain’s new Halloween decorations – which they say look like “giant sperm.”
The fast food giant has gone out of its way to celebrate the spooky season, including putting broomstick stickers on the windows of several of its UK outlets.
But while their intention may have been to return to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, their decor ended up looking a bit X-rated.
The problem is, a lot of people don’t think they look like brooms, but rather like semen.
One person shared a photo of the decorations and wrote online: “I really thought there was a sperm on the window of this McDonald’s.”
Another asked, “Why does McDonald’s have a giant sperm cell on their window?”
Some found it hilarious, with a joke: “So, they finally unveil the secret of their special sauce.”
Another said, “Love the big BIG cum on their windows!”
“I guess the instructions on how to apply the window stickers weren’t followed correctly.”
A customer said to the Sun: “It’s not just me, a lot of people have said the same thing, it looks like a sperm.”
They added, “I understand that you are trying to make it look like Halloween for the kids, but what is supposed to look like a broomstick is not at all.”
The discovery comes as Brits from top to bottom of the country prepare for Halloween.
And McDonald’s isn’t the only one raising eyebrows with its choice of decor.
Supermarket giant Asda’s line of Halloween dolls are so terrifying that a buyer said it makes them physically sick with spooky music and eyes that glow red.
Some buyers have been scared off by Asda’s Halloween line, while others are keen to buy them.
One customer joked that it’s when the dolls leave on their own in the middle of the night that you need to be concerned.
Anyone looking for spooky dolls to add to their home can choose between a little girl, with a striped beanie and socks, or a clown doll that gives Pennywise a run for her money, reports Manchester Evening News.
But if you’re more into crafting your own decorations and want results without getting your hands dirty, a TikTok user’s 30-second hack might be perfect for you.
Kiel James Patrick, who posts under @kjp on the video-sharing platform, went viral after showing how he used a pressure washer to add a face to his pumpkin.
In the clip, he can be seen using the pressure washer to draw two triangle-shaped eyes, a nose and a mouth with sharp teeth.
A little water drains from the mouth as he finishes, but as he circles the pumpkin, viewers can see that the back is still intact.
