In a video produced with Comedy Central, the casual-dining chain riffs on a popular ’80s ballad
Joe’s Crab Shack has become the latest restaurant chain to team up with Comedy Central to produce a web-only video.
The promotional video, titled “Every crab has its legs,” spoofs ’80s hair-metal bands and the song “Every rose has its thorn,” by the band Poison.
Longer than the traditional 30- or 15-second television ad spots, the minute-long video gives the chain an opportunity to promote more than one menu item in a single package, including its king crab legs and Steampots.
Houston, Texas-based Joe’s Crab Shack has 119 units. In May, parent company Ignite Restaurant Group Inc. said it was planning an initial public offering valued at $75 million.
