Television news often shows a street scene with an unruly mob assaulting a McDonalds franchise (probably owned by locals).

After all, McDonalds is a symbol of American capitalism and globalization. The delicious irony is that so many members of the mob wear Nike shoes and Levis, two other quintessential American icons. Even more incongruous is that the story of Levis does not begin in the States, but in a small town in Germany, where Löb Strauss was born.
