SPARTANBURG, S.C. (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Americans were pleasantly surprised last year when Denny's (NASDAQ:DENN), home of the original real breakfast, announced during the Super Bowl that it was offering a Free Original Grand Slam(R) for one day at its restaurants nationwide. After pioneering the way for giveaways and feeding 2 million grateful Americans who took advantage of the offer, Denny's is doing it again...plus more! Denny's first engaging and humorous Super Bowl third quarter commercial is one of three and will announce a Free Original Grand Slam(R) offer that will take place on Tuesday, February 9th from 6 a.m. through 2 p.m. at participating restaurants. ] In the first thirty second Super Bowl ad, which is part of a new campaign created by Goodby, Silverstein & Partners, Denny's introduces a brand advocate who invites viewers to enjoy a Free Original Grand Slam(R) while warning chickens to get out of town because "it's going to be a tough week for egg layers." We see chickens sitting in a sports bar, shopping in an electronics store and watching television in a living room express tremendous shock as they hear the news, knowing they are going to have a busy work week ahead. Denny's "Chicken Warning" ad continues the tradition of using humor to communicate to millions of Super Bowl viewers. The chicken theme continues into the fourth quarter with a thirty second spot highlighting the Free Original Grand Slam(R) offer on Tuesday, February 9th and a fifteen second ad prior to the two minute warning, re-launching Denny's Free Original Grand Slam(R) Birthday offer.
"We are leveraging the power of Super Bowl once again to connect with our customers to keep Denny's in their hearts and minds by communicating our Original Grand Slam(R) offer," said Nelson Marchioli, CEO and President of Denny's. "We know that times are still tough and a free hot breakfast helps a lot of folks and their families... we heard from thousands last year who thanked us. This year Denny's will even go beyond just one day of free meals by offering a number of everyday affordable programs all year."
From online and in store sweepstakes to birthday offers and endless fries and pancakes, Denny's continues to give back all year long.
Denny's integrated Super Bowl campaign also includes print ads in USA Today, an extensive social media program that extends the life of the characters from the Super Bowl spot into exclusive webisodes that will be featured on Denny's Facebook and Twitter, digital media and a radio tour.
