America wants choice. America wants value. America wants Sizzler. That’s the message in this ridiculously patriotic promotional video for Sizzler restaurants that was unearthed recently. Taking us back to the heady days of 1991, this video is a bizarre pastiche of rah-rah Americana cliches. Baseball? check. Dog catching a frisbee? Check. Lengthy discussion on why Americans are ready for Sizzle? Very much check.
“Get a little freedom in your life,” goes the chorus. The freedom to wear regrettable hairstyles and salivate over lobster. America!
