A sage, ageless man as soon as mentioned, “you taste like a burger. I don’t like you anymore.”
That is after Elizabeth Banks, her face covered in BBQ sauce, calls for that her seemingly immortal beau makeout along with her on the cookout on the final day of camp in Wet Hot American Summer, a transfer akin to what the youngsters name “goblin mode” or “going arduous,” however what I’d as a substitute say quantities to a ardour for barely spicy sauces with a hefty kick and a devil-may-care perspective.
Now Applebee’s can be inviting you to “style their face.”
Partnering with magnificence model Winky Lux, Applebee’s launched Saucy Gloss, a line of lip glosses impressed by the flavors of the liquid gold Applebee’s douses their wings in. Claiming that they’re America’s go-to first date spot (and that they’re actually up for being your “wingman”), they launched the lip glosses for National Lipstick Day and National Wing Day. In a second of pure serendipity, they simply so occur to fall on the identical day.
Flavors like “Get Me Hot Buffalo,” “Sweet Chile Kiss,” “Be My Honey Pepper,” and “Honey BBQ” spherical out the gathering, all of which might be bought on-line from Winky Lux for $65. The packaging options an unfussy sans-serif in gold with an identical prime accenting the nuclear wing sauce colours contained inside.
What’s extra, following the Stallion “Hottie Sauce” route, Applebee’s has launched what they’re calling the makeout music of the summer time, a 2-minute banger known as “Taste My Face” with lyrics like “these lips are out of lockdown and inbound so pucker up. I hope you prefer it spicy as a result of I’m sizzling sauced glossed up.” The music comes from Grey Global and Townhouse Music, and it even will get a nifty video courtesy of Ariana Grande and Halsey music video director Hannah Lux Davis.
Here’s a real chef’s kiss of a PR quote.
“Applebee’s is understood for first dates and wings—that are certainly one of our hottest menu objects,” mentioned Joel Yashinsky, Applebee’s CMO, in a press release. “So, we partnered with the event group at Winky Lux to create these lip glosses impressed by 4 of our hottest wing sauces. Find your excellent shade and boost your date night time by including somewhat little bit of that Applebee’s taste to make every kiss much more craveable with Saucy Gloss.”
Just an FYI, I’ve by no means taken a primary date to Applebee’s (relaxation assured, they had been low-class). You may say that makes me a snob, however I’d counter that I simply know the place to seek out good wings.
But not Buffalo lip gloss. So rely me in, Applebee’s.
