Cigar Aficionado Parodied In Sonic Drive-In Commercial
Fast-food chain Sonic Drive-in is advertising its new line of premium milkshakes with a fitting parody of a certain premium cigar magazine.
In Sonic’s new Creamery Shakes advertisement, one enthusiastic customer is happy to see that the restaurant’s new milkshakes are now fit for an “aficionado.”
“Wait, you’re a shake aficionado?” asks the other customer, to which the man responds by holding up a Shake Aficionado magazine that bears striking similarity to Cigar Aficionado.
The customers go on to attempt a formal tasting of the milkshake, similar to the way our magazine evaluates cigars with tasting notes. However, they aren’t very successful in doing so—and are only able conjure up a single note, “It’s cold.”
