Pandemic be damned, brands are coming up with unique ways to still make dads feel special this Father's Day.
Buffalo Wild Wings created a limited run of special-edition ties, designed specifically for the ultimate wing-eating dads out there. The Moist Tie-lette is essentially a Wet-Nap meets a necktie and is available at MoistTielette.com. A tongue-in-cheek video created by The Martin Agency explains the making of the promotional item.
The tie-lettes are sewn from absorbent towelettes and designed to mimic a standard necktie. They are paired with a chicken wing bone tie clip and are packaged like an oversized version of the typical moist towelettes you’d find at any BWW sports bar. They can be purchased for $25, which includes a $25 Buffalo Wild Wings gift card.
Additionally, Buffalo Wild Wings is offering a Father’s Day Bundle on June 21 only, which includes 20 traditional wings, 20 boneless wings and a basket of fries for $39.99. The bundle is available for takeout, delivery and dine-in.
