Watch Redacted Tonight Show's "What a McDonald's Commercial Should Look Like" (Video)

If you want to know what's in your Chicken McNuggets, you can find the ingredients online...though McDonald's doesn't make it easy for you.

The ingredients are listed on page eight of a 20 page PDF document on the company's website, making it difficult to just search for without having to hunt for the nuggets in question.

A much better way to find out what's in your nuggets is to watch this video by Redacted Tonight, an online "news" site that channels the Jon Stewart/Stephen Colbert school of journalism.

Called, "What A McDonald's Commercial SHOULD Look Like", the video shows Lee Camp in a mock audition for the fast food giant in which he's required to read the ingredients of a box of Chicken McNuggets.

Best part (of course) is when the casting director asks to see that all-important moment in a commercial -- taking that first bite!
