Taiwanese animators give McDonald's Channel something to chew on

October 19, 2011 | 11:30 am

The Taiwanese animators of Next Media Animation have a few satirical ideas about what the the proposed McDonald's Channel should show 'if it were being honest.'

The McDonald's Channel, the digital network offering exclusive programming for dine-in customers at the global fast-food chain, is not fully up and running yet in Southern and Central California, but the Taiwanese animators who have parodied Tiger Woods and Charlie Sheen already have a few satirical ideas about what the channel should show "if it were being honest."

McDonald's honchos may not find the short computer-animated video by Next Media Animation very amusing -- one scene shows a man munching a hamburger in a hospital bed, and he suddenly suffers a heart attack. 

The channel, which will officially launch early next year, is scheduled to show a variety of programming provided by several producers, including Mark Burnett ("Survivor"), BBC America and KABC Eyewitness News.
