LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Sprinklers at an NFL game this weekend recreated a Buffalo Wild Wings commercial. The Miami Dolphinsâ€™ sprinklers came on during Sunday’s game. And even Buffalo Wild Wings thought the moment seemed ironic.
In the original Buffalo Wild Wings commercial, an actor says “The only thing that would make this any better is overtime”. At that point, the bartender pushes a button under the bar marked “Miami vs. Seattle”. That button signals a staffer in Miami to head to the “irrigation room”. There he triggers the sprinklers during the Fox telecast.
On Sunday, the Seahawks vs. Dolphins game prompted laughs if that secret button does work at the Buffalo Wild Wings. The sprinklers were turned on. And while, Miami was behind 14-7 before the sprinklers came on, like the commercial, they ultimately won the game.
Buffalo Wild Wings says of the moment “We are really into this Miami/Seattle game. Hit the sprinkler button a little early, though. #oops.”
