Similar font to McDonald's logo?

Does anyone know a close font to the Mcdonalds logo?
(the writing under the golden arches).
I know it's prob a specially made up font but is there anything even
remotely close?

I've looked at
geneva
arial
helvetica
futura

and the lowercase 'a' does not look close at all.

thanks if you can help.

um ... which lowercase "a"?

If I check with the american site
http://www.mcdonalds.com/

I just get to see "I'm lovin' it" in a font that could be almost
everything but as a guess I'd say Helvetica- or Akzidenz Grotesk- bold.

The font used on
http://www.mcdonalds.com/corp.html

for "McDonald's Corporation" looks like a DIN-Mittelschrift to me.

You may take a look for yourself:

Apple's Font Management -- What Collection(s) Is A Font In?
As part of OS X (I'm using version 10.4.3) Apple provides font management via the Font Book application.

Font Book Oddity Which Affects Only Geneva Font
At this time I have installed 249 font families which together have 637 faces. The fonts are clustered into sub-folders within either System/Library/Fonts or /Library/Fonts. Because a particular font might come from more than one source there are some duplicates. If I resolve the duplicates using Font Book they are all resolved with the exception of Geneva. This resolution is applied by selecting all of the fonts and then applying the Resolve Duplicates action within Font Book.

Tiger's Font Book Significantly Improves Font Organization
Since seeming time immemorial, using only Apple supplied font management facilities, all of the individual font files have been dumped into just a few folders, and a single folder could end up with literally hundreds of such font files, and it could happen that a single font family could often be made up of quite a number of separate files. There are some of us, myself included, that found such disorganization unappealing, and some of us, again myself included, would take the time to carefully organize the constituents of a font families into their own folders--at least this subordinati...

Matching Custom Control's Font to Dialog Box's.

ClearType: Does Java AWT use its own font or use the OS's font in displaying text field?
