Looking to get out of work? Alexi Lalas has a message for your boss

Defender, musician, Michigander: USMNT soccer celebrity Alexi Lalas has worn plenty of badges over the course of his career as a player, executive and broadcaster.

Add “absence advocate” to the list.

Lalas took to video to record a pair of employer please for male and female workers across the world. With the United States preparing to kick off its World Cup tonight against Ghana, perhaps your boss could use the words of a soccer celebrity to help your office get out of work.

Ladies, the female version is here.

    I’m telling you, elective surgery. I’ll be on the couch for the next three days.
