Dear Sonic - Your New Commercials are Terrible

Dear Sonic:
What is going on with your commercials?  As if the car hops on skates weren't boring enough, you are now using these unfunny, lame, and just-plain dumb commercials.  I guess you are trying to go for a crazy, funny, kooky vibe on them, but it just doesn't work.  The characters are not funny and are unlikable.  I especially feel contempt for the guy in the car with the cardboard robot (a total rip-off of AWESOM-O).

I found an article saying you recently changed ad agencies after 17 years, and this is what they came up with (so this is what happened to your commercials).

You really thought those commercials were a good idea?
The people who came up with the "Pete and TJ" commercials deserve a Nobel Prize for that idea compared to what's on right now.  Long live Pete and TJ!

What do you think about the new Sonic commercials?


  1. I haven't seen the new commercials but if Pete and TJ were better then that's saying a lot. I also want to talk about the Dairy Queen commercial where mary lou retton pops out of a pinata. My dad mentioned it and said: you know your life has gone downhill when you are popping out of a pinata.

  2. About a week before I saw that commercial the first time I had thought to myself, "I wonder what Mary Lou Retton is doing now, and is she still married to Shannon Kelley?"

  3. Long live Pete & TJ indeed! I just spent way too long YouTube'ing Sonic commercials. Now back to Friday Night Lights on Netflix.

  4. I will never eat at Sonic because of there commercials.
