Mornings can be tough, but McDonald's has got your back with the Excuse Generator 3000. Designed by digital agency Moroch to buy you a few extra minutes to grab some breakfast grub from McDonald's, the EG3000 emails a custom-tailored excuse directly to your boss to explain your belated arrival at the office.
