"In honor of the 150th anniversary of the
Irish famine, Denny's is offering free endless fries and endless
pancakes, though we haven't ever heard of a pancake shortage before..."
"Denny's has a history of using humor in its
television advertising. It is certainly not the intention of the
company to offend anyone or any group and we apologize if this spot
has in any way."
Wow. Nobody on the team raised a red flag over this one? I don't think you have to be Irish or even offended to acknowledge that there must be better ways to get people into your restaurant than by poking fun at a million people who starved to death.
