Dallas Ad Firm Uses Bailout to Sell Denny's Grand Slam Breakfast
After the jump, the latest Denny's spot -- which is notable for two reasons. One, it's the chain's effort to capitalize, if that's the right word, on the $700 billion bailout, which is the subject of a lengthy New York Times story today about "advertisements that seek to take advantage of the attention the public is paying to Wall Street and the credit crisis." And two, because, as The Times notes, it was created right here, in the Dallas office of Publicis Worldwide. Though I think this Gawker comment puts it in the proper perspective: "How is DENNY'S going to save me from the coming recession? Are they going to build me a house made of goddamn pancakes and bacon?" --Robert Wilonsky
