Over the past few weeks, Dunkin’ has been launching advertisements for its fall 2020 menu, some of which include a pun of blink-182’s hit “All The Small Things.”
For all of you fortunate enough to have a Dunkin’ nearby, you’re in for a lot of sweet treats this fall. The chain’s seasonal menu launched on Aug. 19 and includes tasty snacks including apple cider donuts, pumpkin munchkins and the maple sugar bacon breakfast sandwich.
Along with the Pumpkin Spice Latte, Dunkin is bringing back the pumpkin-flavored swirl that can be added to any hot or iced coffee. This includes cold brew, espresso, frozen coffee and frozen chocolate. For all of you tea lovers out there, Dunkin’ is also launching a new Chai Latte for customers to enjoy this season.
Now, it looks like Dunkin’ is taking its advertising up a notch and music fans are noticing. The chain recently launched an ad that features the seemingly normal phrase “all the fall things” on it. However, blink-182 fans, and even the band, noticed that the phrase is a subtle pun of “All The Small Things.”
On Wednesday, blink-182 shared the ad on Instagram and let Dunkin’ know that they’re aware of the Enema of The State song pun.
As well, various fans have shared their spottings of the advertisement over the past few weeks.
