Steak 'n Shake's "Hat"

Every time these commercials come on air, I jump to change the channel. Or if the remote isn't near me, I simply develop a temporary eye twitch.

I won't say much more about them other than:
1. It angers me how stupid Steak 'n Shake seems to think people are.
2. Are they trying to be like the Arby's glove? (Which was a stupid campaign in itself)





Any thoughts?

  1. I despise these commercials. I found your article by doing a Google search to see if I was the only one who thought these things are a disaster. I cringe every time they come on. They're embarrassing to watch.

  2. I'm glad to know I'm not the only one! I honestly wonder not only who came up with it, but also who sat there and thought, "Yeah this is a great idea - let's go through with it!"

    Thanks for the comment Mike :)

  3. I kept waiting for the old SnS commercials (with folks talking about the burgers) to show once in a while, then realized this is the only SnS ad campaign now - got to wonder if sales have gone up after these came out. The "annoyance level" is only topped by Flo from Progressive. All I can do is mute the TV and make sure I don't buy their products.

  4. Did it occur to any of you that the annoyance factor may be intentional? It does grab your attention and you do recall the restaurant's name. Sounds like an effective commercial to me.

  10. I'm with you. These commercials are "almost" as bad as their "crow" commercials. Remember them? I have E-Mail them about their dumm commercials, but to no avail.
