Perkins Drafts Bill Cowher for “Gridiron Greats” Promo

When promoting a tailgate-inspired menu, it’s best to go with a pro.

September 16, 2016 // // NASHVILLE, TN – Perkins Restaurant & Bakery today debuts three new television spots and four digital shorts starring former Super Bowl winning head coach Bill Cowher. The NFL Today cohost brings his unique style to a Perkins booth to promote the company’s special fall menu of tailgate-inspired recipes, aptly called “Gridiron Greats.”

“Bill Cowher is one of football’s greats,” said Wade Breaux, CMO at Perkins. “He brought his Agame to our campaign and was a real pleasure to work with. We think our guests will love these spots.”

Highlights from the campaign include a dubstep remix of Cowher eating Perkins Gridiron Ribs, ample use of his signature game-face scowl, a PSA for Perkins’ Give Kids the World charity and more.

“It doesn’t get much better than good food and football,” said Alex Plewinski, SVP, Group Brand Director at The Buntin Group, the agency that created the campaign. “We think this is a great combination brought to life by Bill Cowher and we hope Perkins fans will agree.”

Three TV spots will air selectively throughout the United States and four digital shorts will debut via Perkins’ Facebook and Twitter accounts. See more at
