McDonald’s debuted a new happy meal mascot today on social media, but the company didn’t get the response it was probably hoping for.
The fast-food restaurant tweeted a picture of the little guy with the caption, “Say hello to our newest friend, Happy!”
And then Twitter users started responding with their thoughts.
“THAT! is Scary!,” @DrZombield tweeted.
Another user, @wonkachu, tweeted, “I didn’t want to sleep tonight anyways, it’s cool.”
According to the McDonald’s news release, Happy is a “character that brings fun and excitement to kids’ meals while also serving as an ambassador for balanced and wholesome eating.”
