DJ and Kingston Jierre Pryor became a viral video sensation last month after the cutest video of them chatting up a storm was posted. The video of DJ and 19-month-old Kingston “talking” to each other is one of the most adorable moments we’ve seen all year. We’re not the only ones who think so: the video has racked up nearly 60 million views on Facebook to date! And now, it’s been turned into a heartwarming Denny’s commercial that is just as good as the original thing.
Watch the full, original video here:
Denny’s, in one of the more brilliant marketing moves we’ve seen recently, created a special Father’s Day commercial featuring the father-son duo. DJ and Kingston sit in a booth and chat about what they’ve been up, what’s going on in his favorite show, all while enjoying some eggs, bacon, and pancakes.
At the end of the commercial, Kingston lays his head on his dad’s shoulder and gives him a hug. DJ tells his son, “Thank you for bringing Daddy here; I appreciate you.”
Denny’s Chief Marketing Officer John Dillon told USA Today, “We knew immediately, we wanted to hear more and invited both father and son to continue their conversation over a meal in a booth at Denny’s. This video captures what we’re all about at Denny’s – our commitment to feed people’s bodies minds and souls by bringing people together over a great meal.”

When I’m not hanging out with my three-year-old and husband in Brooklyn, I’m busy writing stories for Mamas Uncut and managing PR + Marketing for Magnolia Bakery, based in New York City. On weekends, you can usually find me at a local park or playground pushing my daughter on the swings, “researching” the best almond croissants in Park Slope or launching into impromptu family dance parties at home, the sidewalk or, every once in awhile, a restaurant bathroom. I’m still trying to master the whole parenting thing, but I have learned that copious amounts of coffee, humor and humility are involved on a daily basis.
