Well, I think it sounds like a bad McIdea, but they've really started; McDonald's really has started home delivery service in Tokyo.
I think this is a bad idea because if you've ever tasted McDonald's french fries when they were a bit cold, then you know what I mean; McAwful.
I can understand delivery pizza as pizza is still OK if it's not piping hot. Heck, pizza is good cold. I eat it sometimes straight out of the refrigerator. But cold McDonald's? Hmmm?
And, another question, if my pizza is more than 30 minutes late, Domino's gives me ¥500 (about $6 USD) off my next order. If my McDonald's order is more than 30 minutes late it must surely be cold and the fries will taste like plastic. Will they give me a discount for my next order?
A pizza delivery costs at least ¥2500 (about $30 USD)... Does McDonald's deliver on a ¥550 (about $6 USD) Big Mac set?
If my order is late, do I get discount coupons on my next order? How can they make money on a $5 ~ $6 order? What's up with that?

(I McThink the McBikes should have been McWhite, McRed, & McYellow.
This looks like a Pizza Hut delivery bike!)
Also, when I order delivery pizza, I don't usually order drinks... But McDonald's? What are they going to do in the summer with milk shakes and stuff?
Anyway, I can't imagine that this is going to go well. As I blogged before, hamburgers are supposed to be quick convenience food. I think it defeats the purpose if I have to wait 30 minutes for a delivery.

I think this service will not be successful... But what do I know? There's lots of people out there who haven't seen "Super-Size Me" so maybe this will take off in Japan.
Only time will tell.
