McDonald's Advertisement to Hmong Community is Lost in Translation
It's the first time McDonald's has ever advertised in Hmong, but something is getting lost in translation.
Many who can speak and read Hmong say they can't read the billboard. One problem is that it seems like there are not spaces between words.
It's supposed to say "coffee gets you up, breakfast gets you going" in Hmong.
On Tuesday, McDonald's said it is working with their local advertising agency to fix the text and have the billboards re-posted next week.
