Celebrating a birthday at McDonald’s will never go out of style.
Video games have long gone from being a niche hobby to become social phenomena like any sport, celebrity, so it is increasingly common to see big brands interacting or sharing video game content on social networks, although a priori it seems a bit weird. Like the fact McDonald’s congratulate Cloud Striffe on his birthday.
Within the Final Fantasy universe, the past August 11 It was the birthday of Cloud Striffe, protagonist of Final Fantasy VII, and of course, the official account of the game shared a congratulations through his Twitter account. What no one expected is that McDonald’s appeared out of nowhere. wish you happy birthday too in the strangest way possible.
Not that McDonald’s is completely unrelated to the world of video games, the fast food chain has collaborated dozens of times with different games over the years, but this unexpected congratulation to Cloud Striffe does not stop surprising. It is not that McDonald’s currently has any promotion going on with Final Fantasy or that it talks a lot about video games in its day to day.

Not only the congratulation itself is strange, beyond Cloud’s message and photo, it turns out that It’s not even a cake you can order at McDonald’s. Of course, the post went viral and has thousands of likes despite not promoting anything from McDonald’s. All thanks to a CM fan of Final Fantasy.
Fnal Fantasy VII prepares new releases
We do not know if McDonald’s will prepare more cakes to celebrate the occasion, but soon the Final Fantasy VII series will receive two new installments. Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core Reunion, a remastering of the PSP classic that will arrive this winter, and Final Fantasy VII Rebirth, the second part of the remake that is scheduled to be released next winter (2023-2024)
