Burgercon offers free Austin Powers movie rental

Burgercon, McDonald's latest marketing campaign aimed at trying to get you to eat their Big Macs, is offering a free movie rental for Xbox Live members in the United States. Make your way to the Video Marketplace and rent Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery for free! All thanks to the kind folks over at McDonalds ... Burgercon rocks! Also, if after watching the original Austin Powers and you have a jonesing for more Mike Meyers, Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me is available for rental, but for 240 Microsoft points.

It's also worth mentioning that we ran into some technical difficulties trying to download the movie from the Xbox Live Burgercon ads. But there's an easy workaround. Simply make your way to the "all movies" list on the Marketplace and you'll find Austin Powers listed. Try downloading it from there, it worked for us.

Woopty fricken doo, I can watch Austin Powers on tv at least once a month. If they really want to sell big macs they should give out Shaun of the Dead, rather than this charity shit.

im just assuming here but this is the SD version right? I would have preferred it if there was a crappy HD movie to download. Taht way MS wins too because they expose more people to their download service.

Free is good.

I liked this movie when it came out and will download it and watch it again.

But they should of flashed a code after viewing the film to take to Mac Donalds 4 a free big mac combo that would have been sweeter.

Free to rent! hah! It's not like they are giving the movie away.

I would of rather passed on all of it if it saved me from having to look at McDonalds ad's on my dashboard.

McD's ad's, Games brought to you by T-Mobile.. I'm really wondering why the hell I'm paying $50 for live and still looking at ads. I really don't mind them if they are game related but this is really pushing it for me..

why do people always complain about seeing ads on things they pay for? We pay for movie tickets, so why are there advertisements on the 20Wenty @ Regal theaters? Why are there commercials on expanded cable shows, when we pay for cable. It's called maintaining profitability. If it bothers you so much, don't play Xbox games!
