McDonald's India (West and South) has taken signed actor NTR Jr as its brand ambassador.

The brand has launched a new TV commercial, conceptualised by DDB Mudra, featuring the actor wherein he is seen driving the message #DontExplainJustShare in his quintessential cheeky style.

The brand has reimagined the offering of its marquee chicken range – McSpicy Fried Chicken by introducing the ‘McSpicy Chicken Sharers’ in sharing buckets. The brand film highlights this proposition of ‘just sharing’ the McSpicy Chicken with everyone without any need for explanation, as the spicy flavour must be experienced by all.

This latest TV commercial features a surprise with the actor in a playful and whimsical setting. With a touch of magic and a cheeky remark, NTR Jr captures the essence of the #DontExplainJustShare theme of the new offerings.

In the TVC, he is seen tinkering with the moon charismatically to make sure his favourite McDonald’s store remains open so that he can keep devouring the McDonald’s McSpicy Chicken sharers with his friends.

Arvind RP, Chief Marketing Officer, McDonald’s India (West and South), said, “We are ecstatic to have NTR Jr join the McDonald's India family as our brand ambassador. His incredible on-screen presence, charismatic personality, and relatability among the youth and families complement our vibrant brand and this new offering very well.

NTR Jr said, “I'm happy to join McDonalds’s (W&S) as their brand ambassador for McSpicy Chicken Sharers! It is an iconic brand that resonates with millions of people across the world, and to be a part of this journey feels amazing. I have always believed in collaborating and sharing, and the McSpicy Chicken Sharers speaks volumes about this spirit - #DontExplainDontShare.”
