“Protect The Football” Is A Great Call To Action

Protect the football (from homebrew, wheatgrass, babies any environments that doesn’t work for watching football). That’s the new message from Buffalo Wild Wings and its ad agency, Fallon.

Interestingly, some homebrewers are pissed at the brand. One commenter on YouTube said, “You should learn to make good wings before you pick on the people that have taken the time to make good beer.” Another humorless homebrewer wrote, “As a homebrewer that makes GREAT beer, FUCK YOU.”

No word yet, if parents, or fans of wheatgrass, are equally humorless.

I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. Today—after working for seven agencies in five states—I am head of brand strategy and creative at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.
