From that iconic basement in Aurora, Illinois, Wayne’s World is ready to broadcast again. In the Uber Eats Super Bowl commercial, the beloved duo has a special message for everyone. Even special guest Cardi B is ready to Eat Local and support local restaurant businesses.
For some people, their basement has become both their escape and their window to the world. Although that next zoom call isn’t the same as a public access broadcast, everyone’s home has transformed into a variety of items. From work-space to classroom to even the pseudo table from your favorite restaurant, home is an all encompassing meaning.
While the Super Bowl is often the time to gather, cheer and eat through four quarters of football action, a memorable halftime show and stop mid-bite to watch those Super Bowl commercials, this year’s event looks a little different. Instead of your favorite table at a restaurant, it might be that restaurant food enjoyed on your couch.
Isn’t it time to watch the commercial. Check out Wayne’s World, Uber Eats style and all their marketing tricks. How many did you catch?
From cute babies to social media trends, this Super Bowl commercial covers it all. If you’ve been watching Wayne’s World with your kids over the past year, the only question might be where’s the “we’re not worthy” comment.
Can Wayne’s World convince you to Eat Local with Uber Eats?
This Uber Eats Super Bowl commercial is entertaining, and many people will appreciate the nostalgia and pop culture references. As Dana Carvey said, “Wayne and Garth are the happiest characters we’ve ever played, and it just seemed like the world really needs them right now.”
Even Mike Myers weighed in, saying “when Uber Eats came to us with this idea, we were excited. Local restaurants need our support more than ever right now, and to be able to lend our voices and local access show to that message just felt right.”
As the laughs make people watch, the commercial highlights an important issue in the restaurant industry. Eat Local is not just a cute phrase on a bumper sticker. It can be the difference between your favorite restaurant being open or closed.
Cardi B said, “Y’all know I love to eat, and right now we have got to be supporting our local restaurants – like The Griddle Cafe in LA. So many spots are struggling right now, and it’s up to us to EAT LOCAL! That’s why I teamed up with Uber Eats and my boys Wayne & Garth to help.”
Although the traditional restaurant game day scenario has been put on hold, it doesn’t mean that local restaurants need to have their kitchens dark. In some ways, there is an even more important reason to place an order for a favorite restaurant meal for the big game.
To encourage people to place that order, Uber Eats will offer “$0 Delivery Fee for all consumers ordering from local independent restaurants.” In addition, the Restaurant Contributions feature will return on the app. “Uber matching every contribution this week dollar for dollar.”
While purchases do help to drive keeping businesses open, Uber Eats understands that even more needs to be done. Through the Restaurant Forward Grant Program, the company is providing “$4.5 million in small business grants for local restaurants with five or fewer locations who are active with Uber Eats or Postmates across the United States.”
From placing an order from that special local pizza place, the hottest wing joint or that Sunday dinner favorite locale, the Wayne’s World and Uber Eats message is clear. Eat Local does more than just satisfy a hunger. It can help the local restaurant community start to thrive again.
