Ever sat through a bad first date? Butter Composer Andrew Sherman takes a humorous spin on the awkward first encounter in a spot promoting Dairy Queen's value-friendly Sweet Apple Barbeque Grill Burger. As the uncomfortable couple squirms in their seats, bubbles pop onto the screen with a spiffed-up studio version of each character singing an ode to the delicious food and wishing that they shared more in common than a love of DQ.
