Buffalo Wild Wings performs a nasty bit of surgery on this guy, for absolutely no reason at all
1. These kids are a little too old to be acting like mommy is going away to have cancer surgery and will be back in a week or longer. Either that, or those apron strings are really, really tight. I shudder to think how they'd handle "I'm leaving because your dad can't appreciate my love for my college basketball team, and I'll see you ever other weekend."
2. Daddy can't appreciate college basketball "because he went to art school?" I wonder why Buffalo Wild Wings didn't just go with "because dad's gay and we figure gay people don't like college basketball," because that's EXACTLY what they really WANT to say here. I get that this is supposed to be about exaggeration being funny, but the "art school" bit is not only mean and stupid, it's also 100 percent unnecessary. The commercial would have been every bit as effective if the kid had just said "Dad's college team didn't make the tournament." There. Done.
Except "Dad's team didn't make the tournament" doesn't leave dad looking like a eunuch which, again, is the real point of this commercial. F--- off, Buffalo Wild Wings.
