Mcdonald's Hires Engineers to Design A Brand-New Super Straw

Shelby Rogers

Within the first ten seconds of this brilliant advertisement, we were pretty sure this new invention was a complete hoax.

Leave it to McDonald's to actually make this a real product. The STRAW (short for Suction Tube for Reverse Axial Withdrawal) debuted shortly after the chocolate Shamrock Shake hit the market. The only problem with the new shake was blending two flavors. With a traditional straw, people would drink the bottom flavor first (because no monster would blend up the two flavors how dare they). McDonald's decided to make a straw so customers can savor both flavors simultaneously.
