I HATE HATE HATE this stupid-ass commercial! Every single character in this 30 second clip pisses me off - from the fake looking Asian cop, to the gross girl in the glasses who looks like she's going to sh*t herself, from the stupid blonde chick telling me to get them now (!), to the girl doing a stupid dance in her chair about banana pancakes. I've never seen such a stupid commercial in my life. Angry

Yeah, don't know what they were going for with the glasses girl, that was probably meant to be a muffled scream over how good it was, not to look like she just sharted herself like the final outcome did.

Maybe glasses girl has one of those remote-controlled vibrators and her boyfriend decided to have some fun?

If she had a boyfriend, I'm pretty sure she doesn't now. Doing that banana dance in public is sure grounds for a dumping, don't you think?

What's wrong with the people in this ad? Those pancakes look nasty. WTF is up with the woman with the glasses? That stupid face she makes looks like she wants to spit out what's in her mouth.

came here just to specifically bitch about this commercial

and yes i want to ring both the girls with the glasses' necks. the sad thing is, girls really are like this today and think they're geeks because they watch the big bang theory and watch pbs.

Come to think of it, I'm honestly surprised nobody in the ad tried to instagram their food.

Note to any IHOP adtards: This is not an open invitation to take that idea into consideration.

That's the problem, it is a fashion statement. Zooey Deschanel and all the other crap like that is trying to be the whole, "Oh look we're cute and geeky, we may not be geeks proper but we're cute. You have to love us."

I'll bet that if we started referring to such people as dorks rather than geeks, they wouldn't be so quick to proclaim themselves as such.  "Doofuses" might work, too.  Maybe even "schlub".

Re: Summer Signature Pancakes, my question is, how do you put a signature on a pancake to begin with?

And why would you?

Do you use a felt-tip marker, or is there some sort of pancake signing gadget they use?

And who signs them? Can you sign your own? Can you get celebrity signatures? Would the pancake then become collectible memorabilia?

Would a signature on a pancake be considered legally binding?

This ad just raises more questions than it answers afaic.

I will say that those pancakes look pretty damned good, though.

Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

I'm getting a toothache and a stomach ache looking at the calorie-packed pancakes done up as desserts!

Why do pancakes have to be dessert, too? Yuck! As much as I like tiramisu, I wouldn't think of ordering it for breakfast. Nor could I eat a side of bacon or sausage with Bananas Foster. I know IHOP is 24/7 and that "tiramisu pancakes" may sound like a grand idea at 4:00 AM after a night of heavy drinking, but the after effects are just too brutal to think about!

I think people order those kinds of fancy-shmancy pancakes as more of a special treat or out of curiosity just to see what they taste like, than they do to satisfy some hunger or craving for pancakes.

Sort of a novelty thing I'm guessing.

Snes, thanks for getting that video up for me. Must have been copy-protected since I took it from IHOP's official YouTube page. Every time I see this commercial I hate it more and more.... that girl with the glasses.... grrrrrr.... I just want to take her glasses off her stupid face, snap them in half and then yell directly at her "you're not cool or different!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You look like an idiot!!!!!!!" Then, I'd throw her pancakes on the ground as I walked away.

Couldn't you just take her pancakes away from her & give them to me???

I'd hate to see them wasted like that.

Screw you IHOP, I want my pancakes with butter and syrup, and that's it.

Why is every restaurant & fast food place in the country acting compelled to come up with the zaniest concoctions and throwing them together onto a plate or bun just for the sake of having something 'new?'   2 Beef Patties, Onion Rings, Bacon, Avocado, Sweet Potato tots, Pickle slices, Pepperjack Cheese, and Creamy Nutella Ranch on 3 slices of Sourdough Toast just to have a 'variety' friendly menu.   Just give me a goddamn hamburger and fries, not some culinary clusterf**k.

Sorry Jimbo. I want to throw them on the floor just to make a point. Plus- I would throw her snapped glasses on top of them and then stomp on all of it. Afterwords though, I'll be happy to buy you some pancakes. :)
