Appetite Appeal Flew The Coop At Denny’s

Once upon a time in America, it made sense for restaurants to entice customers with their food. But now we live in a time of cheap production and no-cost distribution–a fact which leads to spots like this.

[UPDATE] David Gianatasio of Adfreak also posted this spot and said, “This stuff is so forced and self-consciously bizarre, it’s impossible to look away. Jimmy Fallon should take notes. And try wearing a beak.”
