Clayton & Dave Scorn Sponsor

May 1, 2010

Fox & Friends Weekend co-anchors Clayton Morris and Dave Briggs irreverently mocked their F&FW sponsor Red Lobster yesterday. As to the casual dining restaurant’s current promotional offering, Clayton Tweeted, “If I ever told a woman that I’m going to take her to Red Lobster tonight for their Festival of Shrimp I’d never hear from her again.” Finding his tweak about a Fox News advertiser somewhat surprising, the author replied, “Clayton, b careful. U may have offended a certain F&F demo & isn’t/wasn’t Red Lobster a Beck sponsor? U may want 2 recant. :),” Unrepentant, Clayton responded, “@Jakeho Why would I recant? I speak my mind and “Festival of Shrimp” is hilarious. So is the Snuggie and you didn’t see me pulling punches.”

Since Clayton, apparently, had not noticed the author’s smiling emoticon and thus took the recantation call seriously, the author answered, “@claytonmorris No need to, Clayton: I Tweeted in jest. Just bring “it” tomorrow to F&FW! No, not the shrimp nor the Snuggie but your credo.”

About an hour later, Dave supportively stood by his friend and colleague Clayton. He Tweeted, “I’m in! RT @ClaytonMorris: If I ever told a woman I’m taking her to Red Lobster tonight for Festival of Shrimp I’d never hear from her again.”

As to the erstwhile Doublemen Twins, it is refreshing to see them exhibit some good old F&FW moxie. For the sake of Clayton and Dave, hopefully, Red Lobster’s parent company Darden (“the world’s largest full-service restaurant company”) has a good sense of humor. Furthermore, hopefully, their fans and followers who are less economically advantaged than the co-anchors will not take umbrage at what could be considered to be a slight to their non-upscale dining.

Caveat to Clayton’s lady and Brandi Briggs: If your man offers to take you to Red Lobster’s “Festival of Shrimp,” he may be sending you a message.

Aly to Dave: Feel It!

September 13, 2009

Fox & Friends Weekend co-anchor Alisyn Camerota may have somewhat hidden her love from her fans and followers today. However, she certainly did not toward her co-host Dave Briggs. As for her fans, she treated them to some eye candy with her sexy, short red dress but she simply sent a single Tweet (no Tweetbacks) and merely commented once on her blog (ten minutes before the end of the show). However, as for Dave, her love seemed a mite more manifest.

One such instance occurred during F&FW’s “Snuggie Time for Wallace” segment (wherein Chris Wallace donned a Snuggie from the F&FW crew). As Dave began to introduce the story, he suddenly stopped, moved closer to Aly, and said, “Uh, I guess my mike is off.” More than helpful, Aly jutted her bosom mike out towards Dave and coquettishly cooed, “Speak into my chest.”  [A loud whistle from her delighted floor crew ensued.]

Another such example occurred later in the program after Aly did a story on shopping for vintage clothing at New York’s City Opera Thrift Store. As that segment concluded, Aly modeled her designer dress for her appreciative colleagues, Dave and co-anchor Clayton Morris. Then when the previews of the upcoming blocks ran, Dave was heard saying, “It’s good.” For the audience’s benefit, Aly amusedly remarked, “Dave’s fondling my fabric.”

After the promos ran, the trio reappeared on air just before going to commercial.  Clayton asked, “What fabric is this? Is it burlap?” as he repeatedly touched her dress. Meanwhile, Dave, not quite as comfortable as Clayton, kept his distance for the time being. However, quite interested, Dave asked, “What is vintage?” Aly racily patted her derriere and saucily replied, “Feel it!”

The Bristol Bay Babe seems to always be able to keep her boys’ rapt attention.
