After McDonald's big emphasis on eating breakfast all of the time, restaurant operators in the chain's hometown are ready to remind people to start their days with Mickey D's.

A campaign via Cossette that broke this week uses the new tagline "Make it a Mickey D's Morning" and includes TV, radio, out-of-home and social ads. A TV spot pokes fun at how a morning can go poorly without breakfast by showing how one woman who skips out has a major make-up mishap -- ahead of a big meeting.

The campaign is only for the region run by the McDonald's Owner/Operators of Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana (MOCNI), a co-op that oversees hundreds of restaurants.
