McDonald's: Eid Mubarak

In case you don't know much about Islam, this will be hard to get, so let me give you a hint. Eid is a religious holiday, when muslims pray more than any other time of the year. They pray with their palms facing their face and fingers close together.
The ad is hilarious, I've done several Ramadan and Eid related ads for many clients and I know how hard to come up with something that is not cliche. It's like xmas. Every single thing has been done to death. And, this ad still manages to be original.

I simply detest the idea of brands like McD trying to cash on religious sentiments.

I thought it was Sydney Opera House at first glance; what an ignoramus!
