Sonic Entertainment

I don't know about you, but I'm a big fan of the Sonic commercials.  They usually feature two guys in a car at a Sonic talking about some new Sonic food.  The guys are, well, imagine a cross between Urkel and Will Ferrell.  My favorite is the Tot Rejection spot.  The parodies on YouTube are also funny.

I must say that the quality of the advertising vastly exceeds (what I imagine to be) the quality of the products.  The latest special here in Arkansas is the Country Steak-n-Egg Toaster Sandwich.   Fried egg, country-fried steak, and gravy, all on Texas toast.  At 700 calories, 36 grams of fat, and 325 mgs of cholesterol, it certainly isn't good for you.  I've never sampled the ware, so I could be totally off-base here, but it doesn't sound very appetizing, either.

I agree that the descriptions don't sound appealing but as they say, don't knock it till you try it.
