McDonald’s New Happy Meal Box Has a Very Clever Surprise

1 minute read

Inexpensive virtual reality viewers have a habit of showing up at unexpected places, like under conference attendees’ seats or inside magazines. The latest VR surprise? McDonald’s is making Happy Meal boxes that turn into cardboard VR viewers called “Happy Goggles.”

The Happy Goggles will be available this month and cost about $4.10, according to AdWeek. Unfortunately for us Americans, they’ll only be found at a handful of the fast food chain’s Swedish locations.

Per AdWeek:

The push is tied to the Swedish “Sportlov” recreational holiday, during which many families go skiing. With this in mind, McD’s created a ski-themed VR game, “Slope Stars,” for use with the oggles (though they work just as well with any mobile VR experience). The game can also be played in a less immersive fashion without them.

The virtual ball is in your court, Burger King.
