Zaxby’s Launches its Quirky ‘Guy on a Buffalo’ Wing Film

Zaxby’s quick-service restaurant has launched a funny new campaign to introduce its Buffalo Garlic Blaze signature sauce to complement it Boneless Wings Meal. The campaign features the quirky “Guy on a Buffalo Wing” which premiered during Monday’s College Football Playoff national championship game and will run during the Big Game on Feb. 13.

The brand teased its new sauce with various trailers ahead of the national championship game, leaving its “Fanz” guessing who is behind the “Guy on a Buffalo Wing.” The full spot launched during the championship broadcast.




“With launching the new Buffalo Garlic Blaze sauce, we saw an opportunity to create a campaign that is a little unexpected while still staying true to Zaxby’s brand,” said Dooley Tombras, president at Zaxby’s creative agency of record, Tombras.


“‘Guy on a Buffalo Wing’ is impossible to look away from, the kind of campaign that will make diners wonder what they’re missing and have to try it for themselves.”
