In 1972, when he was initially debuted, Grimace (who is actually a huge taste bud) was called “Evil Grimace.” In his original form, he has four arms and stole all the cups from McDonald’s to prevent anyone from drinking milkshakes or Coke.
However, after complaints that the original Grimace scared off young customers, McDonald’s gave him a makeover. “We changed him to a soft, plush, two-armed blob of a sweetheart who only wanted McDonald’s milkshakes and to hang out with Ronald,” Roy T. Bergold Jr., McDonald’s former vice-president of advertising, wrote in QSR magazine in 2012.
Most recently, a TikTok trend has emerged in which fans create short horror films purporting to demonstrate the horrific repercussions of drinking Grimace’s purple birthday milkshake.
