Golden Ox = WalMart shill?
Sat, 05/5/12 11:04 AM
Last night I saw a TV commercial in which the Golden Ox in Kansas City teams up with WalMart to promote WM's "premium choice" line of steaks, Folgers style ("We secretly replaced the normal fine coffee with Folgers Crystals..."). Naturally, all the customers are just blown away by how unfreakingbelievably good the steaks are, and when it's revealed that they're from WM people immediately start saying that that's where they'll buy their steaks (and presumably all other beef) in the future. Frankly, I'm surprised the commercial didn't end with a stampede to the nearest Big Blue Box.
If I ever eat at a steakhouse in KC the first thing I'll ask about is the source of the meat...
