Buffalo Wild Wings Ad Confirms Men Are Even Stupider in Slow Motion


What is it about slow-motion footage that makes guys look even more amusingly idiotic than usual? Do we simply find it funny when men's physical movements decelerate to the point where they match their mental ones? Whatever it is, it works pretty well in commercials. The classic example is the famous Carlton Draught commercial from a few years back—a veritable opera of sluggish male moronitude. Now, Buffalo Wild Wings—always ready to salute, in a good way, the inherent imbecility of the hairier sex—has done something similar in this ad from agency 22squared. You can just feel the male brains in the ad struggling to comprehend their predicament. Buffalo Wild Wings is the only corporate sponsor for the NCAA in the casual dining category, and as such, it can call itself the "Official Hangout of NCAA March Madness." The new campaign positions the chain as the only place for sports fans during March Madness and beyond. Two more spots and credits after the jump.
