A casual Japanese pub chain called Yotteba released an ad with a version of Ronald McDonald that just might make you blush a bit. 

The NSFW image is meant to help sell Yotteba's fries. The pub chain has long made fun of McDonald's in its marketing, even using the golden arches. 

Social media responded and it wasn't pretty. 

The new design was created by Wizard Skull, a New York-based artist. Skull has posted on his Instagram that several news outlets and the Japanese chain used his workout with his permission or credit. 

We imagine that McDonald's won't be too happy either with the new version of the iconic clown.
