“Less than a month after Pepsi announced a blockbuster deal to give away 100 million downloads from Apple’s iTunes music service to its customers, McDonald’s is close to a announcing a much bigger deal, The Post has learned.

In a dramatic move that gives a thumbs up to the music industry’s efforts at creating legal alternatives to file sharing, McDonald’s plans to give away up to 1 billion songs in a marketing campaign, according to sources familiar with the matter.”

Great… another reason to contribute to the morbid obesity of the average american. Now all the people inspired to exercise by having their own personal sountrack in the form of the iPod will be vastly overshadowed by the corpulent masses stuffing their faces with big macs and swizzling highly caloric pepsi to wash it down in the hopes of a free song.

I hope they attach free songs to Large Diet Cokes… cause too many value meals and I’ll gain all my newly-lost weight back.

Damn!  Why oh why can’t Subway give out 1,000,000,000 songs?!?!?!
