According to McDonalds founding father Ray Kroc, McDonalds is a people business."

In the restaurants latest commercial, a side-by-side frame shows a boy from a few decades in the past, and a girl in the present day. A cover of Cyndi Laupers Time After Time plays as the boy passes various objects of his to the girl and watches her enjoy what he gave her.

As the video concludes, the children end up eating Happy Meals from different decades at McDonalds. The boy passes a McNugget into the girls frame and then slides himself in with her, transforming into her father.

You loved them then. You have more reasons to love them now, read a tweet from McDonalds Twitter account, referring to the new, all-white-meat chicken McNuggets.

The ad's release coincides with McDonald's announcement that Chicken McNuggets will no longer have artificial preservatives.

Because McDonald's is the official restaurant of the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, this commercial has aired several times during NBCs Olympics coverage.

As the leading food-service provider in the United States, we serve a variety of wholesome options to more than 26 million customers every day, reads McDonalds Facebook page.
