Denny's "Greatness" Commercial: WOW!
Denny's ^ | 2012 | Ad Agency/Denny's Marketing Dept.

Posted on 06/20/2012 8:42:43 PM PDT by Pharmboy

Please click here and watch this short, amazing commercial.

I saw it tonight while watching Spike TV and could hardly believe my eyes and ears: a national corporation (and direct seller to the public) shows NO FEAR in support of the Second Amendment.

Three huzzahs! to Denny's for the guts not to care if they lose gun-grabber's business.

They certainly picked up more of my business. Just wanted to let the Freepers know about this...I thought it was newsworthy (since I never heard of anything similar happening re the Second Amendment), but if the mods want to put this in chat, I understand.

Our gang has been frequenting Denny’s near us almost every Sunday for a number of years. Makes me glad to see that I’m spending my money at an establishment that still understands that America is America.

I like it. America is exceptional and great, no matter what the libtards and hussein say/think. Just made plans to take the family to a local Denny’s this Saturday.

They probably figure (correctly) that the anti-gunners weren’t ever going to eat at Denny’s anyway.

Wow! That wasn’t just a mere slight mention, that was DIRECT! “Our right to bear arms!”, says the little old lady!

That’ll help get my patronage of Denny’s!

Well, bacon, eggs, and hash browns on a Saturday morning is fine with my diet...I just can’t do it every day (although I sure would like to). It’s Denny’s on Saturday for me...

A good friend built a trailer to tow behind his Honda Goldwing. On the back of the trailer he attached a wooden Teddy Bear he made that is holding a rifle. Beside the bear on the left side in wooden lettering is the word “Right” and the number 2. On the right side of the bear is the word “Arms”. He’s received a lot of positive comments.

Good point...but they STILL took a chance of getting slammed by the usual suspects on television. This was still gutsy by many measurements...I would have enjoyed the discussions in the board rooms.

Oh, no doubt of that, but if they are doing their demographics studies correctly, the hard numbers would have been there to support the position. It took guts, but the logic isn’t arguable.

Conversely, a tofu bar would be well advised to run anti-2nd advertising for the same reason.

Nice. Thanks.
They are basic food, no frills and always pretty decent.
Also they serve banana splits.

Well, it would be terrific if this would start commercials of a similar vein by other companies if Denny’s business goes up after this airs for a while. They certainly earned more Freeper business tonight.

Good commercial. Clever but not smarmy. No point made at anyone else’s expense. Nice use of the Constitution as a counter-point to their message.

Good for Denny’s

Interesting. But I saw it in the most liberal county in the most liberal state: Maryland, so if they held that part out for political reasons, they would have held it out here too. Must have been because of time and what you saw was just the short version.

Smart of them to counter the food police BEFORE they are under direct attack from the Mayor Bloomberg types. The ad is saying that you have a RIGHT to eat what you like and this is one of the things that makes America great. Good timing with Independence day coming up too.

Our favorite restaurant for routine weekly outings is a nearby Denny’s which is a franchised ownership, not owned by Denny’s corporation. Good food & good service!

The ones that don’t have their head in the sand might just do that. Thing is, the only thing that is selling at all in this country under the current economic climate is guns. This implies that people who are buying guns have money. Therefore, it might be a good idea to cater to those who buy guns in order that they might be interested in your product.

Also they serve banana splits.

Real ones too, just like the old soda shops, not like the usual fast food fakes, and big enough for two or three people.

Hmmm...meat and potato sandwich. One of my favorites as a kid. Leftover meat loaf and mashed potatoes, and a dash of McIlhenny’s Tabasco between two slices of Wonder Bread. Arrrggg...Denny’s this weekend, for sure!
