‘Ronald’ is a Documentary About a Man Who was Ronald McDonald for 12 Years
I won’t lie and say this didn’t freak me out a bit. “Ronald” is a short documentary created by The Guardian that features Joe Maggard, one of the few men to have played McDonald’s mascot, Ronald McDonald. Between 1995 and 2007, Maggard represented the burger brand as the
scary famous clown, though he says he never retired.
“More men have walked on the moon than been Ronald McDonald.”
Watch the documentary above to hear Joe speak about his work as Ronald and how he still continues to rock the costume at the Las Vegas carnival to high-five people.
