Remember babushka dolls? My gran used to have a set that I loved, and when she went to Turkey she bought me 2 sets.

This McDonalds Ad plays on the babushka connection and I love it!

During the Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver, the Russia House was located right across the street from a flagship McDonald¹s location. These Big Mac boxes based on matyroshka, a set of traditional Russian dolls that decrease in size and fit one inside the other, were sent over to welcome them. Inside the final and smallest Big Mac box was a coupon for free food written in Cyrillic. 100s of sets of boxes were then placed in McDonald¹s take-out bags and dropped off at the Russia House for members of the Russian delegation.
