      These 2 ads appeared next to each other in Sau Paulo, Brazil. McDonalds and Burger King have both used OpenAI’s ChatGPT to generate these ads.

      What is the most recognizable hamburger in the entire world? asks a typographic poster made by McDonald’s using ChatGPT. And the next day Burger King gave its own response, asking, “And which is the biggest?”

      It’s good to see the font color shift to symbolize the many layers of a Big Mac and a Whopper, the ads themselves are pleasingly simple, letting the text do all the talking. The text itself is straightforward and educational, just as you’d expect from ChatGPT. It gives information about the Big Mac’s history (“First introduced in 1967….”) and the size of the Whopper (“a robust and satisfying Burger”).
