McDonald's Arabia Launches "Family Time Forever"

Children joyfully raid their parents’ office building in the TV spot.

A little girl tells her dad, “No more work today.”

The TV spot closes: Family time forever.

Forlorn–looking children hold up handwritten signs written on construction paper imploring their parents to spend more time with them.

“Mommy, I miss your bedtime stories.”

“Daddy, was your daddy always at work too?”

Visitors to the McDonald’s Arabia website are encouraged to take a proactive pledge to remember to take time out of their busy work schedules for their families.

One of the 15 pledges.

In order the take the pledge, visitors must provide a name and email address.
