As consumers, iconic logos are ingrained in our subconscious. At any given moment you can probably look around and see a logo you recognize without being able to read the name. And when it comes to top-tier recognizable logos, few are as legendary as the Golden Arches of McDonald’s. From countless Happy Meal toys—like their iconic collab with Cactus Plant Flea Market—to appearances on screen, McDonald's is as recognizable as it gets.

Like all of us, our favorite characters on the screen crave McDonald’s from time to time. From Big Macs to Happy Meals, there have been plenty of McDonald’s meals featured in film and television and even references in music. Now, McDonald’s is going through the archives to remember some of these most iconic references and features and will commemorate them in a special way, with the 'As Featured In' meal.
