McDonald's Excuses Tardiness

Published on .

McDonalds "Excuse Generator 3000"
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. Each seemingly authentic note—written by a doctor, a mechanic, an alien or a secret agent—contains your name, your boss' name and a series of random words chosen by you, all mashed together into a compelling alibi.
