For those of you who don’t know what a Sonic restaurant is…well neither do I. I can tell you what they serve but, for the life of me, I can’t tell you where they are located. So, this begs the question, what’s with all the advertising in areas where the only Sonic that you can drive to is located 3 hours away in East Bumblefuck?
Here’s the scoop: according to the writer of “two-folks in a car” (the standard Sonic commercial), it’s basically a better deal for Sonic to purchase cable ad packages that air nationwide for all you Sonic-less folks to view. An added benefit, he said, was that this strategy has coincidentally built up hype for the drive-in burger chain whenever it enters a new market:
I have to be honest, I am really looking forward to one day waking up and having the craving for a dedicated breakfast drive thru restaurant that will feed me a bacon, egg and cheese sandwich with an OJ delivered directly to my car. I have heard many stories of my old college buddies taking road trips to partake in this manner of ordering breakfast and getting served in their car. Yes, this was a wacky idea by my stoner friends, but you can’t argue that is quite a road trip just for breakfast. Also, I asked a few colleagues and 5 out of the 14 have said they have made at least one long trip to a Sonic.
Are you tired of missing out on the tasty goodness offered by Sonic? Do you wish you can have tater tots as a side to your burger? Does the idea of a slushie delivered to you by a waitress on rollerblades get you aroused? We’re just curious, how many of our Campus Socialite readers have ever been to a Sonic? If so, what was the location? Comment below!
