AREN'T WE A WONDERFUL COMPANY?
While I think this commercial is very well done, well acted, and well meaning, I still find it insipid. The idea that an ex or present employee stopping into McDonalds with his school acceptance letter leads to general rejoicing is just too pat. Am I really supposed to believe that the manager and all the employees are so invested in this kid's future, it is a cause or a joyous time out? This is a major corporation giving themselves a major and generally undeserved pat on the back. How about a living wage?
