Good, goofy work out of Goodby for Sonic
Just saw a new spot for Sonic Drive-In hotdogs featuring a custom Country song sung by a girl that sounds like Dolly Parton.
While looking for that ad, I stumbled upon the one above. It’s dry, honest, awkardly funny and features Frankie Ray as the vampire. Then I saw this one with an oblivious, insecure Wolfman. Then this one with a confused, cannibalistic Humpty Dumpty. Then this one with a tender, self-righteous ghost. Then this one with a frighteningly calm, threatening robot. Quite a series. The way they give absurd, imaginary characters very real treatment and very human qualities makes you laugh at them and feel bad for, mad at or scared of them simultaneously. Bravo, Goodby, Silverstein & Partners.
As soon as I find the Country song ad, I’ll post it.
