Default Disc Golf Commercial

I was in Buffalo Wild Wings yesterday and well eating some tasty wings I saw this ad come up on TV.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PPy6wFLRWiA

Well it was cool to see disc golf on TV and in a place that was packed because of the Broncos game so I wasn't the only one that saw it. It didn't really seem to show the sport in the best light, but it was still funny. Like they say any publicity is good publicity.

it's been out for a few months and makes me sad. The first bear throws backhands under his left arm.

Still a cool commercial. Too bad it's not for a bigger company, it would be nice to see this commercial during a national broadcast. I wonder if any company has thought about a Super Bowl ad. Innova should have an ad for the Roc at this year Super Bowl! I know it will never happen but it's still fun to think about.

Pretty funny. It really looked like it was going to be for a DG course or a park though.

Nah. When I just had my Innova starter set I actually putted better with the Shark than the Aviar. That bear knows what's up.

I like it. It was obviously made with some knowledge of the game.

QFT

I started out with just a Shark, and that hyper putt ... mmm mmm good.

Took a while to get used to putting with a putter.


Like the ad by the way - they should do a Bad Grampa tie-in.

Not to mention the fact that those innova starter sets tend to be lightweight. My 147g aviar from the starter set could not handle even the slightest breeze. At least the light shark is a little more aerodynamic.
