Wired.com has posted a vision for the 2013 Happy Meal. Some of the cool things include a Capri-sun style beverage container that lets you decide just how cherry you want your cherry Coke to be and a disposable iPod.
But their vision has its disturbing parts. First, the promotional tie-in is for Harriet Potter. (Hollywood isn’t exactly imaginationland, so let’s not give them any more recycling ideas.)
Even more bothersome is the warning from the “Health Czar,” which alerts customers to the common sense conclusion that a McDonald’s-exclusive diet is unhealthy. Of all the elements Wired sardonically predicts, this is the most likely to actually come true – depending on how agressively Obama’s celebrity pick for surgeon general wants to pursue anti-fast-food initiatives.
