Buffalo Wild Wings, like EA Sports’ Madden ’11, are wisely choosing to use one of the most popular play-by-play announcers around to help reach their target audience: Gus Johnson.
In their latest commercial to gear up for the football season, Gus provides the play-by-play commentary for a football game televised in the background of a Buffalo Wild Wings bar.
