I'm lovin' it

by muckla
Dieser Werbeslogan kommt mir so falsch vor. Müsste hier nicht simple present angewendet werden? Bestimmt ist es slang - wer spricht so? Ist das amerikanisch?

Hey muckla,

For the most part, you're right: The verb "to love" is usually not used as "somebody is loving something," but rather, "somebody loves something."

I think, however, at least in America, "I'm lovin' it" has become more and more popular, most likely since the famous McDonald's advertising campaign first appeared.

Hi muckla, hi Yama

I agree that it's not the grammatical form that usually springs to mind in this case.
This probably has to do with the intent behind the advenrtising slogan - to emphasise the experience rather than simply the product - even if it means bending the rules of grammar in the process ;) "
