Daddy. Even the feds are fed up with mcdonald's ice cream
00:03
drama. I've been fed up the Federal Trade Commission and the
00:07
Department of Justice is applying pressure to make sure we get our
00:10
mcflurry. They want to be legal to use outside technology because
00:16
apparently a couple invented a device that reads the error codes and
00:20
can fix the ice cream machines.
00:22
But when the franchise owners started using them,
00:25
Mickey D's was like,
00:26
nah, what, why like,
00:28
no, no ice cream,
00:29
sorry guys. That makes no sense.
00:31
Yeah. So apparently it's illegal to fix machines except for the

you know, the solution now they're suing mcdonald's for 900 million

00:48

00:55

00:57

00:58
10% of mcdonald's ice cream machines are still broken at any given
01:02
time. So it's like Russian ruler out there.
01:04
Damn. It should be on the app.
01:06
It should say on the app,
01:07
like which one, which if your local ice cream machine is
01:10
working or which ones work?
