The Food Liberation Army has released a video documenting how they kidnapped Ronald McDonald from a McDonalds restaurant in Helsinki. There is some speculation that this entire episode has been staged by an advertisement agency. I haven't yet developed an opinion on this theory. According to the Finnish press, McDonalds has filed a police report concerning the theft.
I'd really like to think that this is a genuine act of subversion by an actual group of activists but I guess we won't really know until next week which is when the group threatens to execute Ronald if McDonalds doesn't meet their demands.
