Germans are weird, but the NYC/Berlin connection continues. Maybe this is the only way to convince my German boyfriend that cupcakes (preferably one from Sugar Sweet Sunshine in the Lower East Side) are to die for, well actually maybe not.

McDonald’s Germany has just introduced cupcakes inspired by four different neighborhoods in New York City. Each ad features a Manhattanite from each 'hood explaining why the cupcake is characteristic of where they live: There's a hipster from the East Village, a savvy shopaholic from SoHo, an earthy Central Park gal, and a clean cut young professional from Chelsea. The questions is: which German McDonald's cupcake are you?

Click here for the shitty English translations of each cupcake character and the whole story.

I saw these too... They fascinated me.
I wish they had a Bushwick one.
