Ah, the perils of confusing coupons.This coupon from Wendy’s recently caused quite a fuss when it was posted on Reddit. The general reaction was: what (or who) the heck is the “Redhead” that it’s selling?
No, Wendy’s isn’t peddling crimson-haired humans with any purchase.
Luckily, some of the more well-informed Redditors shared their knowledge:
“A “redhead” is their stupid coffee :( I got all excited when I saw the sign thinking it was a red, spicy buffalo sandwich (or a real redhead which I would have preferred ;) ) But it is just coffee :(“
And now we know.
On Wendy’s end, it shows a disconnect in its marketing. Something like the Redhead, which obviously isn’t a commonly known brand, needs a bit of context.
