If somebody came to steal your dinner, would you rather he be surprisingly attractive or predictably unnerving? Well, according to Twitter, the McDonald's Hamburglar is both of those things. When the fast-food chain unveiled its beef-thieving mascot's return with a mysterious video, the Internet began to debate whether the newly fedora-clad character was hot or creepy. Check out some of the hilarious reactions below, but don't be fooled . . . the new Hamburglar is obviously Ryan Reynolds in a mask.

It's super obvious that Superman is Clark Kent, but it's even more obvious that The Hamburglar is Macklemore. pic.twitter.com/Vi23so5mLF

Is McDonald's trying to reach the hipster demographic? If so, they should embrace nostalgia, not give the Hamburglar a fedora.
