IHOP Saw Adam Sandler's Viral TikTok and Is Making This Monday All-You-Can-Drink Milkshakes

·3-min read

IHOP is making it up to Adam Sandler.

The popular restaurant chain has announced that this Monday they will be offering all-you-can-drink milkshakes in all 19 restaurant locations in Long Island, N.Y. — a move that was inspired by a viral TikTok video that showed Sandler leaving a local IHOP after being told he would have to wait 30 minutes to get a table.

However, Sandler went on to set the record straight on social media, joking that the only reason why he left was because he was told "the all-you-can-eat deal didn't apply to the milkshakes."

On "Milkshake Monday" guests at all 19 IHOP locations in Long Island (where Sandler was attempting to dine) will be able to enjoy bottomless milkshakes from 12:00-8:00 p.m. ET.

Making the deal even sweeter, for every milkshake sold nationwide on May 10, IHOP will donate $1 to Comedy Gives Back, a nonprofit helping comedians who have been negatively impacted by the COVID pandemic. (Sandler himself was a headliner at a livestream event for the nonprofit last year.)

"We take our guests' suggestions very seriously in an effort to continually shake things up and satisfy all palettes," Kieran Donahue, CMO, IHOP said in a press release.

"We are thrilled to celebrate 'Milkshake Monday' at IHOP in the spirit of a cheeky smile for a good cause," added Amber J. Lawson, CEO, Comedy Gives Back. "A delicious meal of pancakes and milkshakes can make you happy any time of day, and while we could all use a laugh right about now, some could use a lot more. A handful of comedians are household names, but the majority are not; we are grateful for IHOP's support to help working comedians stay afloat in this challenging time."

Sandler has yet to publicly comment on the delicious new deal, or indicate whether he'll be taking advantage of the offer.

The hilarious saga was sparked by a video posted to TikTok last month, which showed one hostess unknowingly interacting with the Grown Ups actor during her shift at the IHOP in Manhasset, N.Y.

As Sandler was wearing a face mask, the hostess didn't recognize him, and the actor politely left after being told it would be 30 minutes to get a table.

"Pleaseee come back," she captioned the video.

In response to the viral video, Sandler joked that "for the record, I only left the IHOP because the nice woman told me the all-you-can-eat deal didn't apply to the milkshakes."

Later speaking with Inside Edition, the restaurant chain hostess said with a laugh, "That just proves the point that you never know who might come into IHOP!"
