I know I am being VERY general, but i cannot stand the forced family and "real" life friends that Sonic has slammed us with since ridding those two guys that were around forever.   I feel bad for them actually.  That was "their"  gig for so long !   I cannot tolerate the "real people"   telling unfunny jokes to each other  ( not jokes,  but trying to be humorous ) 
I felt like I grew up with those two guys,  not these "Amazon" phonies !

I just read that those two guys (both improv comics) were doing the Sonic commercials since 2002. That's a pretty good run.

Thank you! I was embarrassed to post since I thought nobody else liked those guys! They were funny in a Dad joke kind of way!

Don't be embarrassed at all !   The world seems to have really changed ad wise,  and there is that ( what I call ) "forced Amazon way of life" thing going on.  Over the top "P.C.ness".  Every company has to show us that mixed race family or pack of friends.  "Peleton Plant Dad's" !?!?  Come on,  knock it off !  I think Amazon started it all, and everyone followed.  Not just race, but gender as well.   I think Sonic, for example,   is going to serve you no matter what you look like or who you love, even if same sex.    ( For the most part, I think I am right,   but yes, I am very aware and remember hearing all the time how a place like "Dennys'' used to not serve,  or make blacks wait unfairly longer for a table,  so I am not saying we live in a perfect world but I like to think it's changed a little since I was younger).    I just don't need a commercial to show me that mixed couples enjoy a Sonic burger as much as me.   And yes, that dad joking kind of way is slowly disappearing unless you count that current "Dr Rick/Progressive" theme going on.  Too bad their early ones were funny,  not the newest ones.

Wow.  I'd have guessed earlier,  I am surprised it's only been since 2002.

The main guy, the one who'd been doing them the longest and at one time had a woman (his wife in the ads and possibly ITRL) as his Sonic partner, was some kind of TV show writer I think.

I liked them even better when the gal was with him.

A lot of people liked them, myself included.

For awhile on YouTube, people were creating and uploading ther own "two goofy guys" Sonic ads.

My favorite Sonic commercial with those two guys is the one in which one of them says loudly:

"YOU'RE A CHEAP DATE!!"

I don't miss them. Not one bit. I'm not saying I like Sonic's current ads either, because I don't. In fact, I don't like much of anything these days, as I've become an old fart curmudgeon, but I digress... I'm sick of stupid awkward "humor" in commercials, as it's become the norm since the turn of the century. Whatever. I'm done. Get off my lawn. Tongue

Agreed. It's like comparing burping soda through your nose to farting a bottle of hot sauce
