A lot of fast food brands are really trying to be cool these days. Remember the Wendy's lady? And look at this weird crap IHOP is trying to pull!

And while part of me wants to say it's not working, the other part of me would totally eat a Grand Slam breakfast right now...Oh wait, that's just how I feel 100% of the time.
