Who's the brain trust in the marketing department that decided to use "Runaround Sue" for this commercial?  Did they not listen to the lyrics?

Thank you, Aleen!  Applebee's is the scum busting product that hopes to gain from other artist's success!

Yes they obviously don't read the lyrics of the songs they use. It's surprising people still eat at Applebees

'Runaround Sue' has become 'Hoveround Sue'.
Yea...can't pick up chicks there at 'Happy Hour' anymore. They're all too old and "Days of Our Lives' is usually just going off, so they aren't out yet.

Up next from Applebees:  A commercial soundtracked by another oldie, this time "Mack The Knife" by Bobby Darin, featuring steak knives in use (at the table, of course).  Tongue

Yeah, they didn't even read the lyrics or know what the song is about.  Lame asses.

Or maybe they're inferring that two-timing sluts eat at Applebees!  LOL

Just change the lyrics. Replace Runaround Sue with Applebees. This would result in "Keep Away From Applebees". Easy, Peasy.

God dammit I hate this commercial for Apple's Bee!  

I hate the way dorky Dad has that "oh sh*t!" look on his face when she walks in.  

And of course Super Mom is eating the salad.

As much as I enjoy going to Applebee's, I hate when these advertisers use classic songs to promote their product. Then that song is 'known' for a commercial. I didn't mind Anita Ward's 'Ring My Bell' UNTIL it was shoved up our a$$es for Walmart. Whitesnake's 'Here I Go Again,' for Walmart and now GEICO. Jackson 5's 'ABC' - now botched up into a Trelegy jingle. I still remember 'Somebody's Watching Me' and the stack of dollar bills with googly eyes for GEICO...and that was 10 years ago!
Liberty Liberty Liberty my a$$. Oh, and that goes with a majority of the other insurance ads, too.

It seems like all day long the wife has nothing on her mind except ordering take-out from Applebees at the end of her day.

She walks in, and he's still got the noose around his neck. Who doesn't take the damn ties off asap?

Maybe 'Dad' thinks he is a Croatian mercenary from the 17th century...???

I first heard the song from watching this movie when I was younger. Although not sure what it has to do with baseball, either. LOL

The wife is probably thinking about coitus with her husband once they finish their Applebees To Go and the kids have gone to bed.

A good meal can lead to good sex, I wouldn't include Applebee's in that equation.

I can't complain but sometimes I still do.

Are you kidding? LOL With all that running around, Sue is bound to be dead tired and will be asleep as soon as her head hits the pillow.  She has lots of activities planned for tomorrow and has her eye on that cute fireman who she gives happy face cookies to.  If a wife won't cook for you in the kitchen, why should she cook for you in the bedroom?  LOL
