"Probs the best ad I've seen in years,"one viewer tweeted. |One more said: "I'm lovin' it. The new ad, that is. Perfect."

An additional third added: "Edgar Wright is a film genius. This is the same as Christmas ads, they often don't show you products to buy they are made to evoke feelings of happiness / Christmas spirit. A lot of the time the best advertising is brand identity rather than 'buy this product'."

As soon as I read the script I was like, 'Oh, I love this song, I love this premise. This will be a lot of fun.'- Edgar Wright

She said:

An invitation to McDonald's is an opportunity to put our responsibilities aside and enjoy a little lift. And we hope Raise Your Arches does exactly that, allowing everyone to momentarily let go of life's pressures and enjoying a Maccers.

We were beyond excited to work with the brilliant Edgar Wright to bring this idea to life, from the visual look and feel he creates to what he does with musicand choreography, he's got that knack of making work that grabs your attention for all the right reasons.

We're always looking at ways to raise a smile and create big populist entertainmentfor Maccers and in the hands of Edgar, we hope we've created something that does both.

McDonald's UK & Ireland's Michelle Graham-Clare, senior vice president and chief marketing officer, continued:

In a challenging time, our Raise Your Arches invitation to McDonald's provides the nation with a small but much-needed moment to let go and feel good. We hope the campaign raises arches and smiles across the country and I can't wait to see everyone get involved.- Michelle Graham-Clare
