It all makes sense now.
Bears fans were shocked last week when video of Chicago legend Mike Ditka wearing a Packers jersey was uploaded to Twitter by Hall-of-Fame receiver Jerry Rice.

Feeling betrayed, many Bears fans denied that the man in the video – wearing a No. 45 Green Bay jersey with Ditka on the back – was actually the former Bears coach.
But as it turns out, Ditka was dressed as a Cheesehead for a McDonald’s commercial that debuted Tuesday.
Rice is also featured in one of the ads.
The commercials advertise the fast-food chain’s “Game Time Gold” promotion, which will begin Nov. 3, according to Ad Age.
Commercial or not, the idea of a Bears Hall-of-Famer in a Packers sweater still didn’t sit well with Chicagoans.
Great, now that I've seen Ditka in a Packers sweater, I'm not sure I'll ever be able to eat at McDonald's again.

Advertising gimmick or not, Ditka wearing anything Packers is just wrong.
