April 4, 2018 – Fire up the grill, Denny’s, because we’re coming for your exclusive Topps trading cards!
Two days ago, Denny’s released a well-done ad promoting its new movie menu and collectible cards to benefit charity.
In the commercial ad, Chewbacca grabs a glass of blue milk while other exotic alien species are seated at various tables and at the bar consuming their meals. The camera then zooms in on tyke-sized versions of Han and Lando, who are seen playing a card game and engaged in a stare-down. The ad next flips to a Denny’s dining booth, where the two kids are seen trading the Topps collectible cards.
Available only at Denny’s, each Solo: A Star Wars Story trading card pack includes two of 12 different character cards.
The packs include random assortments of young Han Solo, Chewbacca, Qi’ra, Lando Calrissian, Therm Scissorpunch and more, in addition to a Denny’s coupon for future use.
Net proceeds will benefit the “No Kid Hungry” charity, which seeks to end childhood hunger.
Denny’s new Star Wars menu includes dishes with names such as Blaster Fire Burger, Lightspeed Slam, Two Moons Skillet and Co-Reactor Pancakes. The restaurant is also selling collectible cups featuring characters from the film and topped with a Millennium Falcon lid.
Founded in 1953, Denny’s operates over 1,600 restaurants in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Mexico, the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Curaçao, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Venezuela, Honduras, Japan, New Zealand, Qatar, the Philippines and the United Arab Emirates.
