Leave it to Denny’s to make a webseries starring bacon
Breakfast just got a whole lot more dramatic.
Denny’s is a social media powerhouse, especially Tumblr and Twitter, where it has inspired a fanbase that rivals some of the biggest media-based fandoms. So it’s only natural that the diner would turn to YouTube for its next wave of digital domination.
This month, Denny’s will unveil a webseries inspired by its iconic Grand Slam breakfast, teaming up with Seth Green’s production company Stoopid Buddy Stoodios. The company will bring the sensibilities it honed on Robot Chicken to a tale of Egg, Bacon, Pancake, and Sausage as they have adventures in and around their booth.
Loyal Denny’s fans are already reacting with the perfect mix of excitement and disbelief. “This is a real thing? Oh lord… I…can’t wait?” reblogged Tumblr user pigquet. “I never know if Denny’s is joking,” wrote Tumblr user youllbesorrysweetie.
@DennysDiner What have you done? ._.
