Shake it off, Sandman.
In honor of that iconic second when 17-year-old hostess Dayanna Rodas refused to seat Adam Sandler at an IHOP in Manhasset, NY, the pancake purveyor hopes to make amends with — or capitalize on — the “Uncut Gems” star with their Milkshake Monday promotion on May 10.
The deal guarantees to donate $1 for each IHOP milkshake bought immediately, as much as $50,000, to the nonprofit Comedy Gives Back, which works as a monetary security web for the comedic leisure neighborhood. Indeed, Sandler headlined their digital Laugh Aid fund-raising occasion final 12 months to help struggling comedians through the COVID-19 pandemic.
And for these lucky sufficient to seek out themselves in Sandler’s neck of the woods, IHOP is additionally internet hosting an All-You-Can-Drink milkshakes daylong particular on the chain’s 19 Long Island places, beginning at midday immediately.
It all began with Rodas, who recently shared a TikTok video of IHOP safety footage which appeared to indicate her turning away a masked Sandler, with daughter in tow, on the hostess stand. According to her retelling, she instructed the 54-year-old filmmaker that he must wait no less than 30 minutes to be seated through the rush.
Rodas instructed The Post, “It wasn’t until a customer walked in about 15 minutes later saying, ‘Adam Sandler was outside,’ when I realized I spoke to Adam Sandler!”
Sandler later took to social media to make light of Rodas’ innocent gaffe. After all, she was solely 6 years outdated when Sandler’s “Grown Ups” premiered in 2010 — his high grossing live-action function thus far with $271.four million, second solely to the $358.three million debut of the animated “Hotel Transylvania” in 2012.
“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,” he joked last week.
Run, don’t stroll, as IHOP’s bottomless milkshake’s occasion ends at eight p.m. tonight. Then, contemplate operating once more to save lots of off the inevitable post-milkshake remorse.
