The trailer for the highly anticipated Season 2 of Loki has sent fans into a frenzy of excitement, with tantalizing glimpses of what’s to come. Notably, the return of the charismatic Tom Hiddleston and the brilliant Sophia Di Martino as Loki and Sylvie respectively has ignited fervor among viewers. But it’s a particular scene that has caught everyone’s attention: Sylvie, the fierce and enigmatic character who managed to vanquish He Who Remains in the Season 1 finale, donning the uniform of a McDonald’s employee.

Sylvie’s journey has been one of relentless pursuit and vengeance. Her relentless quest, spanning decades if not centuries, to locate and confront her nemesis led her to traverse through a myriad of apocalyptic scenarios, hopping from one doomed timeline to another. With He Who Remains’ demise, one question lingered in the minds of the show’s creators:

“This character had been on a decades-long, maybe centuries-long revenge mission and the classic trope of those stories is that it’s all-consuming and she’s not thinking about what comes next. Now she has this moment of opportunity, where is she going to go?”

In a fortunate twist, Di Martino pondered that Sylvie, post her vengeful mission, might feel hungry. Sylvie’s ironic choice holds poignancy. While McDonald’s is mundane to many, symbolizing routine, Sylvie’s life of evasion and danger makes it novel. She’s known only catastrophe, never simple pleasures. Entering a 1980s McDonald’s reflects her longing for the ordinary life and the chance to experience what her tumultuous life lacked.

In a synchronistic move that tickled the curiosity of fans, the fast-food giant McDonald’s unveiled a Featured In clip featuring the leading stars of Loki shortly after the trailer’s release. Speculation quickly emerged that this was more than a mere coincidence; it appeared to be a deliberate product placement strategy stemming from a collaboration between the beloved fast food chain and the creators of the show.

Unlike the usual approach of integrating products into shows, Loki took a unique route. Rather than featuring a common restaurant scene, the show’s creators crafted a deliberate narrative choice. They wove Sylvie’s character around her affinity for McDonald’s, making it a pivotal aspect of her development. This choice underscored her desire for ordinary joys that her challenging life had denied her.

McDonald’s saw a chance to do something more with this situation. They realized that using their restaurant in Sylvie’s story could also be good for their advertising. They could show that their restaurant is featured in the show, and that’s like a special advertisement. They’ve been doing this kind of advertising for a while, showing how McDonald’s is part of many famous shows and movies including Seinfeld and The Office, and movies like Coming to America and Space Jam.

Disney+ premieres Season 2 of Loki on October 6.
