More men have walked on the moon than been Ronald McDonald. Joe Maggard was one of them. But what happens when the role is finished? This amazing video shows.
Joe Maggard was the Official Ronald McDonald from 1995 to 2007. It's obviously a job that paid well, but as this six-minute video shows, it was more than that.
It's Method Acting. Brando did it.
Joe has kept the costume and, even though it takes three hours to put on the make-up, he regularly dresses up and visits the carnival.
In costume he becomes Ronald McDonald, and it's obvious that playing the role had a profound effect on his life.
They sent me to a school. Paid me quite well for that.
It's a fascinating and sympathetic video and well worth looking at.
