I don’t watch a lot of television so forgive me if you’ve already seen this…
So, I saw this Buffalo Wild Wings commercial for the first time last night and, well, I hit the rewind button to watch it again.
Okay, maybe it was three times.
Whatever. I thought it was awesome, obviously, and it’s likely due to the fact that I’m pretty much the exact age required to instantly grasp the reference. (I was heading into the 3rd grade when Karate Kid came out.)
Thankfully, for my sake, I can’t think of a time in my life where I was the prime target of a Johnny Lawrence type.
I got picked on by a prick (a year younger) named Chris Knell in 8th grade briefly but that ended far worse for him than it did for me.
Hope you enjoyed having to switch high schools as a minor-niner, buddy…
And while I may have sported some Johnny Lawrence hair in the early 1990’s I can only think of a single instance, in high school, where I could possibly have been perceived as a Johnny Lawrence.
Man, I was mean to that guy…
He totally deserved it, though.
I’d bet Chris Knell is still an a-hole.
So, wait, even though I looked like Johnny, I now think that might make me more of a Daniel LaRusso type, you know, when he beat Johnny in the tournament, right?
Yeah, I’m the good guy. High school is confusing.
Anyway, while a nostalgic commercial like this strikes me — nearing 40 years of age (OMG!) — I’m quite certain that the under-30 crowd (which you’d think would be the chain’s main target), you know, having been born AFTER the movie came out, would be like, “Um… I don’t get it…”
And speaking of Buffalo Wild Wings, have you tried their Mango Habanero wings?
Holy crap — my eyes are burning just reliving the time I made the mistake of putting one (or 12) in my mouth…

And speaking of commericals I’ve just recently seen, I can’t get enough of this Yoplait commercial either.
I mean, I could watch this lady stomp across the screen all day and I have no idea why.
I think I’ll have a yogurt. Or 12.
