i'm hatin' it

When The Pretenders' Chrissie Hynde comes to Salt Lake City tomorrow, she'll have more on her mind than just rocking Red Butte Gardens. --- On Monday, August 24, Hynde will also be rocking the McDonald's at 242 S. 700 East. 

A longtime spokeperson for PETA, Hynde (a vegan) will debut her "i'm hatin' it" parody of the popular McDonald's ad as she launches a national campaign against the hamburger chain's alleged cruel methods of slaughtering chickens.

Look for a smackdown with Ronald McDonald, Unhappy meals for kids, mangled plastic chickens and "blood" filled packets urging McDonald's to "Ketchup with the times." "McDonald's means McCruelty as far as I'm concerned," says Hynde.

Gore! Clowns! Blood! Rock n' roll! What more could you ask for during a Monday lunch?

12 noon Monday at McDonald's. I'd recommend avoiding the McChicken sandwich.
