Watch: Applebee’s commercial college football fans can’t stand

·1 min read

Are you planning to watch a lot of college football this season? If you’re reading this site, you most likely are. If you have flipped on any game in the early days of the season, chances are you’ve seen this Applebee’s commercial, which features a parody of the recent hit “Fancy Like” by Walker Hayes:

It really doesn’t matter whether you like it or not. All we know is that according to Awful Announcing, it has incurred the wrath of college football fans the world over. To make matters worse, there are four such Applebee’s ads out there.

Do college football fans in general not enjoy country pop or TikTok? Is it simply the frequency with which this commercial has been airing? All we know is the ad doesn’t appear to be going anywhere. We don’t know if Applebee’s has sold any ad space for Notre Dame home broadcasts on NBC as it has elsewhere, but you better brace yourself for the possibility now.
