Hello Kitty will celebrate her 50th birthday in 2024, and the festivities have begun. How does everyone's favourite kawaii cat that isn't actually a cat celebrate such a milestone? You might think she's be treated to a flashier celebration, but it seems there's nothing she likes more than working a shift at McDonald's.

Ahead of her golden jubilee year, Hello Kitty has headed for the Golden Arches. McDonald's launched Hello Kitty Happy Meals in Japan featuring special edition toys and stickers, and they've run out already (see our pick of the best McDonald's ads for more examples of the brand's campaigns).
