Parry will be familiar to listeners of TalkSport, as well as people who watched his hilarious attempt at the Cinnamon Challenge a few years back.
“OK FOLKS .. I see that McDonald's are closing down their 850 outlets in Russia,” he wrote on social media.
OK FOLKS .. I see that McDonald's are closing down their 850 outlets in Russia. I was the very first customer in the first McDonald's ever to open in the USSR in Pushkin Square Moscow in 1990 and was given this badge to commemorate the event .. I had a quarter pounder with cheesepic.twitter.com/ycINog0vs5
It comes after McDonald's president and CEO Chris Kempckinski announced McDonald's would be closing almost 1,000 restaurants in an open letter.
"We understand the impact this will have on our Russian colleagues and partners, which is why we are prepared to support all three legs of the stool in Ukraine and Russia," he penned.
"Our values mean we cannot ignore the needless human suffering unfolding in Ukraine."
Kempckinski added that McDonald's would continue to pay employees' wages.
Parry wasn’t the only person to share experiences about visiting the chain in the early 90s either.
BBC's Moscow correspondent, Steve Rosenberg, turned to Twitter to comment on the "symbolic" decision.
He wrote: "In 1990, I was in the queue when McDonald's opened its 1st restaurant in Moscow: when iron curtains were crumbling & Russia was embracing the West. Today McDonald's announced it is temporarily closing its 850 restaurants in Russia. Hugely symbolic."
