An Impossibly Good Ad Deal

Fresh, never frozen beef. This is a phrase that drives the business of Wendy’s and has been on the tip of Arin Hanson’s tongue for years. For those watching the daily antics of Game Grumps, seeing Wendy’s actually pay some attention to the Let’s Play group seemed like an impossibility, one that was shattered by an unlikely opportunity. Yes, Arin has always been very forward about his love of Wendy’s on the show and Twitter, poking at the restaurant that known for its sassy social media presence. Fans rejoiced all across the web as the Game Grumps were flown to Ohio to do a live stream on Periscope and even film another, more robust video.

Thus, the impossible team up finally happen and the hype was real. The Game Grumps continued to Tweet like a giddy school girl on her first date, asking fans what they should wear to this momentous occasion. The air around the situation for fans was electrifying. This was the moment the Game Grumps community spoke of in whispers, but now shouts of joy and excitement could almost be heard, even at the comfort of home. From the Wendy’s Test Kitchen in Ohio, the Game Grumps went live on Periscope for a Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives style show.

For long-time fans, even though this is definitely an advertisement, its clear to see just how much fun Arin is having. He’s all smiles, flowing well comically with the cooks, and will probably frame that chef coat with photos of this event. Not only did this live stream get me pumped due to my love of the show, but now I’m thinking of putting chicken nuggets in a burger for a Saturday lunch. Dr. Pepper barbecue sauce is totally a thing by the way, its purchasable at major grocery stores. Egoraptor followed up this live stream with a heartfelt video to the fans who have been there all this time.

Game Grumps has been a part of my life for about four years now, starting with those experimental days when JonTron was there. The two struck gold on that battered couch, eventually leading to Game Grumps Live shows selling out across the US, insanely catchy musical albums, and day after day of fun gaming with a friend. It’s this show that actually pushed me into making videos and being a bit more creative in my daily life. That energy and need to make something eventually led to my journalism pursuits. So in a way, Game Grumps helped make me a journalist.

If anyone from the Game Grumps ever gets to read this article. Thank you.

I do patiently look forward to the filmed video Arin mentions at the end of his response to fans. Most of the Game Grumps live action advertisements are funny as hell and legitimately make me interested in whatever they promote. It starts genuine and then becomes insanely fun to experience, that is the Game Grumps essence, what the show was built upon and hopefully what it will continue to be in the future.

All I have left to say is, man, I could really go for a burger.
