The one guy who is a writer for Seth Myers sometimes does some on screen skit comedy on that show. I've seen him do a couple of those "guy in the audience" things. One just recently.
Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

I registered just to reply, ok yes i cannot stand these two guys. I never go to sonic these decades, the food in those commercials looks like orange food colored chicken, yuck.   The other variety looks pasty. These guys seem to be perfect in many ways, lousy commercials for lousy looking food. We did try a sonic once for the nostalgia. After watching these commercials i realize why we never even consider the idea anymore. You can't fix stupid and someone in charge is unfixable.   As my sig says ill get over it but man i hardly ever watch the flat anymore (tube just doesn't work), and they seem to be on all the time.    Now i just flip the bird when i see a sonic and eat somewhere else.   Is it the creeps or the food?   Guess i'll never really find out for sure. One bad meal reinforced with really stupid commercials just isn't helping.

Were they really funny once? I find that just too difficult to believe.

Just another opinion.

I have mixed feelings about these commercials. Half the time I want to punch them in the head, but the other half I find myself laughing because these two morons are having such a good time. The dark haired guy I've seen more, lately on the latest season of VEEP and he was perfect as a corporate dickhole/media group/marketing/promo/event/corporate head honcho (not to put too fine a point on it).

All of these commercials, Flo included, are like improv skits gone way too far.  But I've also been on the other side of it, and am happy that these 2 actors are making some dough doing what they want to do, getting a relatively good deal (national commercial) out of things for their career.

But seriously, at the beginning I wanted to punch them in the face until their mouths stopped moving, but now I laugh along with them.

Here's a pretty funny article about the two of them which kind of made me hate the whole campaign less.

I actually don't mind them. Sometimes they suck, sometimes they punch the right buttons. Either way it doesn't faze me. My favorite car of the ads is the red orangish 1960s convertible. I'm guessing it's a Camaro.

These stupid Sonic commercials with the two douchebags in the car are one of the reasons I joined this site. They are still airing them today and it seems like in every commercial break. These Sonic commercials, along with the Old Spice commercials with the moms crying over their sons and the one with the douchebag in the woods finding the bikini-clad girl, are the reasons why I have begun to just record everything I watch and watch them later just so I can just fast forward through the stupid commercials.

Both of these f*cking knobs look like the products of cousins having sex with each other. So I guess the moral of the story is, "if you are inbred, eat at Sonic! Our chili cheesedogs are spicier than the d*cks of your cousins, and will make you forget your incestuous forays!" THIS IS HOW YOU SONIC!

I wouldn't have wanted it back. Not worth carrying a card around with just a nickel on it.
I have other cards so I can combine and get another item out of it.  Also, I want the card back so I can ...

RELOAD!  (Why should I throw away a perfectly good cute card and buy a new one?  It's recycling!)

This is the one that's nearest to my house...



...as you can see, there's a covered dining area where you can sit at a table & eat, or wait for your to go order.

The walk up order window is up there too.

The thing is, no matter how you order, a waitress/car hop brings it to you. I doubt they expect you to tip them just for handing you a bag of to go food, but I imagine if you sit & eat at one of the tables, they probably do.

Just too many questions for my liking, so I've only been there once.

Our Sonic has drive-up, walk-in, and drive-thru.  No tipping for drive-thru.

DRS, try the breakfast burrito's....

I have no intentions of tipping at a fast food restaurant.  I don't tip at tip jar barista places either.  Not unless I asked for something complicated.  The last time I was at a Starbucks I used a gift card someone had given me.  The bitch counter girl had already told me to move out of the way because I was looking at the selections inside the pastry and sandwich case, and a customer came in and stood in back of me, thinking I was in line.  I chose a sandwich and a snack pack, no drinks, and put it on the counter.  She totaled the purchases and it left me with 5 cents on my gift card.  She had the frickin' nerve to ask me if I wanted my card back.  WTF?  It still had money on it, why wouldn't I want it back?  Later on I realized she was trying to help herself to a tip!  ROFLMAO!

I'm also sick of the minimum wage brouhaha that's going on in California.  It's $9.00 per hour now.  They want to raise it even higher on an escalated schedule.  It's called minimum wage for a reason, people.  Minimum someone should earn for basic labor rights, not the minimum wage you should get to make flipping burgers and supporting a family of four!

Bring some extra money to tip the car hops if you eat in your car like the guys in the commercial do.

Or even if you get your order to go & they bring the bag out to you.

That's the one thing I don't like about them. I don't like being expected to tip at a fast food burger joint.

They ususally have a few tables where you can sit & wait for your to go food if you get out of your car & order, but one of the waitresses still takes the order then brings it out to you, so you still feel kind of obligated to give them something.

So I just don't go.

Plus, it's kinda far.

Sonic, Here I Come!

Remember when I mentioned in a previous post somewhere that my local Burger King closed down so I would have to drive out of my way to drive by one to boycott it, well...

That BK building is being turned into a Sonic!

Yowza!  Now I'll get to try all the menu items I want over the course of a few months!  Dang!  I'm just so excited!  I hope I don't get addicted to Sonic Shakes.  Disapprove

The Sonic commercials are the most annoying ones on tv. For years i have been gritting my teeth every time the two guys show appear. The married couple was 100 times better than the guys. I am sure it is a writing problem. Either way i haven't been to a sonic in quite some time. The commercials turn me off of sonic.

Your comment made me imagine an old beat up truck with a couple of rednecks in it pulling up next to them and saying "You boys lost?! We don't like your kind around here!".

Now that'd be a great commercial.

ConfusedThey've gone from a team that once made some hilarious commercials to a team I could ignore to a team that makes me want to toss a brick through somebody else's idiot box, when commercials like the following show up...
(this one really gnaws at me)
(this one I actually like, but I don't know why)
(I wish they would come back with more like THIS!LOL)

This thread has been going on for a loooooong time.  Personally I like the Sonic ads, but like any ads they get very annoying if seen too many times.  I have not reached that point yet for any of the Sonic ads.

I think the one on the right is a social worker and every day he takes the one on the left to Sonic. Sometimes he brings his daughter because social workers don't make very much money and he doesn't have adequate childcare. The day that his client ordered 40 milkshakes, he had to put it on his credit card. The county refused to reimburse him and his wife was furious. The guy on the right will eventually begin to resent his client. This will lead to disillusionment. He'll wonder where his life went so wrong.

These commercials are really awful.
