McDonald's Employee Sings to Customers: McD's PR, Take Note

A McDonald's employee in Louisiana mans the drive-thru, and his goal is to make people smile ... with a little sound.

Customers told KPLC Joseph Hartstine makes their day with his wild voices and characters at the drive-thru. They also want him to try to get a job in radio. That we could see ... or hear. Hartstine says he's pretty happy with his drive-thru job for now.

Hartstine's small-town story is going viral, with NBC News picking it up nationally, and after HLN's coverage of the story, meteorologist Bob Van Dillen gave those voices a shot.

This is great news for the food chain considering McDonald's has been facing seriously slow sales lately with four straight quarters of declines.

The fast food joint is working to better its image with methods like new ads proving its food is actual food by showing how they make the famous McRib. They modified their tagline and a made a huge Super Bowl ad push. We're guessing this heartwarming story about Joseph Hartstine and his commitment to smiles is welcome.
