Now, a month later, McDonald's has released a campaign for its "$2.50 Double Combo," featuring people who look very similarly twitterpated over their fast food.

At only $2.50, sometimes you just know. Ya know?

The $2.50 Double Combo is the love you’ve been looking for this whole time.

They're pretty blatantly modeled after engagement photos.

A deal so good we popped the question. $2.50 Double Combo.

"I'm not quite sure how much work the marketing team at McDonald's put in?" he says. "I wish they had asked me, I could have easily came up with the exact same concept, photo shoot, styling and positioning over again if they had paid me instead."

UPDATE: McDonald's has issued an apology regarding the photos.

A rep for the company tells BuzzFeed: "This shouldn't have happened and, with our agency partner, we're working to find out how it did. We're reaching out to David Sikorski & Kristina Bakrevski. We apologize to them, their fans and ours."
