The Applebee’s ‘Fancy Like’ commercial is getting the same airplay as “HEAD ON APPLY DIRECTLY TO THE FOREHEAD,” which is to say it appears at every commercial break.
Thankfully, HEAD ON didn’t have a catchy tune and a special dance.
Fancy Like does.
This means that every commercial break I think, “You say ‘Bougie’ like it’s a good thing. Read your Marx and stop bragging about being bourgeois, you oppressors.”
Then I realized I am the bougiest of all, and I do like Applebee’s fajitas and applaud them for jumping on that viral marketing and bringing back the Oreo shake, and for beating out Wendy’s and Natural Light, and good for the songwriter for writing a song that panders to three massive companies. I also like the lyrics and the tune. I just don’t want to hear it every 20 minutes.
But that was earlier this week. Evidently this commercial flamed out like a Bourbon Street Steak after a few days. Viewers hate it.
I can only assume this is planned and that soon we see the Wendy’s cut followed by the Natty cut.
