McDonald’s 1989 commercial filmed at CME

The above commercial (embed nolonger possible to click on link) aired during the Super Bowl in 1989, ironically at about the same time that the FBI were concluding Operation Hedge Clipper and Sour Mash to combat corruption on the exchange floor.  The commercial was filmed on the lower trading floor at the CME and it seems that most of those featured were paid actors rather than locals.  For whatever reason, many in the commercial had trading badges which read LBC and one I saw read MAC.
