Applebee's Targets Hipsters With Ironic Ad Campaign

New, 5 comments

Hey, young people, Applebee's is on to your hipstery, ironic ways. Or at least the Onion News Network imagines that they are in the sketch below. According to the fake news report, the ads are "designed to attract young people to Applebees by inviting them to ridicule its food, service, and atmosphere" and bear the slogan "Wouldn't It Be Funny To Go To Applebees?" Purposefully ridiculous dishes have been added to the menu, including "Fajitas Cordon Bleu" and "Chicken Strip Explosion!!!" (Three exclamation points.) Sick of hipsters? There's also an ad targeted at hipster-haters, too.
