    France… it’s like an entirely different country and here’s some more proof:

    McDonald’s France has put together a spot advertising its wares by showing the world if it were populated by humans with emoji heads.

    Oddly, no one seems to have told the company that we have multi-racial emoji now so it’s just the classic yellow versions.

    Watch out for a little N.W.A. Easter egg in there too.
