McDonald's: “Interview” - 30s

There's a piece of popular wisdom which says one should be careful talking to anyone on the way to a job interview, as hiring managers may ask the secretary or cleaner what a candidate is like away from their assessing eyes. Such advice is updated for the modern era in this McDonald's commercial, which sees a young man gracefully cede his turn at the menu screen.

While the reveal is unlikely to shock, it's slickly executed and offers a valuable lesson on manners for jobseekers: a McMuffin might help kill pre-interview hunger pangs, but it's best to be polite while getting it - you never know who might be next in line.
