The commercial is funny (at least a little) to me.  Mostly because I know that most of us are not like that.  Some people do want to use clams in beer but that's another thread.   ;D

I have been to BWW and I can say, with no reservations, that you haven't missed much.  Most of their dishes are not even actually wings but chicken fingers with sauces.  At least that's my recollection.  YMMV

Where the heck are we going?  And what's with this hand basket?

Wait a minute...How come you guys didn't tell me I needed to wear cool goggles to be a "real" homebrewer?

Mildly funny commercial...I am amazed they could get Zach Galifianakis though  ;)

I should also point out that this ad has no bearing on the fact that I've never been to a "Buffalo Wild Wings" and never intend to go to one.

Food sucks, don't waste your time.

In my area, the service is actually (and surprisingly) worse than the food. What's a girl got to do to get a water refill around here? :)

That's funny right there...maybe cuz it hits a little close to home  ::)

BWW's food in my town is pretty good IMHO.  Their craft beer menu is a huge improvement, too.

Full Disclosure: BWW sponsors our comp in several ways, including selling the BOS winning homebrew, scaled up and brewed commercially, on draft throughout their Maryland locations.  That's a pretty cool prize for your average Joe Homebrewers...complete with tapping parties at several restaurants.  They are homebrewer-friendly, they try to help make a pretty big deal out of the competition, and we give one of their more knowledgeable beer managers a seat at the BOS table (with a pro brewer and 2-3 Cert or higher judges).

It actually could be a pretty funny commercial -- if it were done by the AHA ;-)  A lot of humor is context, and I think something is lost when it's in the context of some mediocre chain making DIY seem stupid.  Whoever actually made the commercial did a good job, though.
Please do not reply if your an evil alien!
Thanks
