The dumbest ad campaign in recent memory
Has anyone else noticed this? In the new "Buffalo Wild Wings" commercials, the restaurant patrons get to have a say in a baseball or football game's outcome. In both cases they do something to prevent their own team from winning. The rationale is that they don't want the games to end because they're not ready to leave yet. Seriously, the idea is that sports fans would prefer to have a game go into overtime so that it will end at the same time they finish their lunch, rather than having their team win in regulation. This is supposed to sell chicken wings and beer.
