Applebee’s And “Hit Me With Your Best Shot”

Applebee’s continues a campaign where they pair their products with songs from the past. In this case, it’s their new loaded fajitas and Pat Benatar’s “Hit Me With Your Best Shot.” They also have another spot featuring Barry White’s “Can’t Get Enough Of Your Love, Babe.” And Applebee’s also made a pharma parody about how those loaded fajitas can help “low sizzletonin.” It basically was a faux-depression medicine ad (think serotonin), and has since been pulled off of Applebee’s YouTube channel for understandable reasons. It’s rather preposterous that someone thought that was a good idea. Here’s an article about it.
