BIG, big revelation of the weekend: Seal – the singer man – used to serve Big Macs and fries in the Kentish Town branch of McDonalds. The one in Kentish Town Road! He told The Observer:
The worst job I ever had was in McDonald’s in Kentish Town. I was 16 and they gave me a brown uniform that was two sizes too small. I stayed two weeks, until I got my first paycheck, then I was outta there.
Seal is 48, so his time as a 16 year old behind the counter in Kentish Town must have been in 1979… yet it’s hard to believe from the telly adverts at that time that working in McDonalds wasn’t simply fun, fun and more fun. None of these guys below look like they want to be outta there.
