i am asian. i know. i grow ...

I was in DC this weekend and I saw this special advertisement campaign that McDonald's is running. This has got to be one of the weirdest slogans I have ever seen, I honestly wonder how an advertising firm came out with this.

When I talked to the (white) guy at the booth, he told me that McD is committed to help Asian American students acheive their education dreams ... mainly via scholarships. While this is a great idea, the slogan really throw things off for me. The first thought that came into my head when I read it was, "Are they saying that asians are short?"

You can see their website at http://www.i-am-asian.com/.

Here are some pictures I took in DC.
