In honor of country singer Walker Hayes’ chart-topping hit turned TikTok trend “Fancy Like,” Applebee’s is bringing back the beloved Oreo Cookie Shake for $2.99. Just like the song says, guests will be “fancy like Applebee’s on a date night” with a “Bourbon Street Steak with the Oreo Shake.” 

With fans doing the viral Fancy Like dance at Applebee’s restaurants across the country, today the brand will also debut two different commercials featuring Walker Hayes’ song along with videos of guests showing off their moves – Walker and his daughter who helped choreograph the dance are featured too.

“For years, my wife Laney and I have been regulars at Applebee’s for date night, and I’ve always wanted to write a song about it,” says country singer Walker Hayes. “The response to ‘Fancy Like,’ the dance and the fan love has been a dream come true – plus, Applebee’s even brought back their Oreo Cookie Shake! What’s better than that?”

“We’d like to congratulate Walker on the song of the summer. As soon as we heard ‘Fancy Like’ and saw the dance videos at our restaurants, we knew we had to showcase this viral sensation,” says Joel Yashinsky, chief marketing officer at Applebee’s. “With our new ad debuting today and the return of the Oreo Cookie Shake, we can’t wait for guests to head into Applebee’s for their own ‘Fancy Like’ date nights. Just don’t ask me to do the dance – I’ll leave that to our guests!”
