McDonald's is thanking all the people who make all-day breakfast possible in a spot by Leo Burnett in Chicago set to air during the Oscars. The ad, "Good Morning Oscars," celebrates everyone who works to whip up McDonald's hash browns, Egg McMuffins and pancakes. The voiceover points out that the officially allotted time for an Oscars acceptance speech is 45 seconds and then asks, "Wouldn't that be a lot more bearable if that was paired with a montage of delicious breakfast food?" The ad proceeds to show just such a montage accompanied by an acceptance speech.
