Domino’s Thinks It’s The New Cheers

Nostalgia is in for Domino’s. During the Super Bowl, they ran a commercial with a parody of the famous and much-lampooned underwear dancing sequence from Risky Business. Now Domino’s is channeling Cheers. We hear the familiar theme music and see a Domino’s that looks like Cheers. Norm, played by George Wendt, walks in. Except the Domino’s employee doesn’t know his name, since Norm didn’t check in on Pie Pass. Because everyone will know your name when you check in on Pie Pass. The commercial uses footage of Wendt from Cheers (the editing is pretty sloppy) along with his current voice. Here’s more about this one, which will surely be a polarizing ad.
