Apollo Moon landing, oh really?

Updated on September 8, 2012

Boy, did they fool us!

It was 1969, the era of sex, drugs and Rock "n" Roll! We landed on the moon! We beat the Russians! Not so fast! It was the late 60s....right? One of the Astronaut's nickname was Buzz....right? "Copping a buzz" was a term for getting stoned....right?

It is starting to sound a little fishy...huh? Just so happens that McDonald's was on the rise to becoming the ultimate fast food franchise. It was rumored at the time that McDonald's executives were planning a blitzkrieg advertising campaign to serve the growing number of stoners with munchies.

The top secret government movie set was infested with communist hippies feeding the unknowing Astronauts mushrooms and then offering hits on bongs. No wonder those guys thought they were really on the moon!

Over 90 percent of the hollywoody fake film couldn't be used because of the party.

"One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind" Was dubbed in on the soundtrack over,"Hey man, I can see my house from here!"

The NASA executives were rumored to have made a deal with McDonald's. If McDonald's paid for the filming, NASA would put golden arches on the moon when they really got there.

You can see in the picture below how much of a mess it was to try and film the moon landing. Studio 11 got so filled up with pot smoke that even the colorful Clown himself was getting in the scenes.

In the end, the editing room floor was piled with screw ups. A short film was made about the good old USA landing on the moon and our politicians were saying "Nanny, nanny, boo boo" to the Russians!

I will never forget that day in 1969. I saw him take the first step on the moon! I was glued to the TV. I didn't even blink until a commercial. I shouted" Jezus jumping jelly beans, come look everybody, they're putting a new McDonald's in Richmond!

      ROFL! The moon landing conspiracies will have to take a back seat to you. Nice photo shopping, or should I say, photo recovery. WAIT -- Don't tell me you were there, and these are pictures you have had in hiding for decades, looking for just the right moment to show the world?

      Great Hub Tom. After our Journey together, I decided to read more work by our team of writers. I heard that there was a conspiracy theory about the moon landing but didn't realize it was so nefarious and included Ronald McDonald. Did you hear that Ronald McDonald has formed a Super PAC called "Fast Food For Freedom" and is running for the new Senate seat in Puerto Rico ?
