This Guy Got Applebee’s And Outback Steakhouse To Battle Each Other On Twitter

Are you team #BloominOnion or #Coronarita?

1. It all started when Twitter user Skrizzly Adams posed an important question: Applebee’s or Outback Steakhouse?

2. Much to his surprise, Applebee’s responded swiftly and with great confidence.

4. Moments later, Outback decided to enter the ring as well.

6. But Applebee’s wasn’t intimidated and retaliated with pic and an aggressively punny hashtag.

@SkrizzlyAdams @Outback Starting out with delicious apps? You have been served. #floatslikeabutterflystingslikeaBEE

— Applebees (@Applebee's)

@Outback wow looks like @Applebees just brought the HEAT & completely upped the ante w/ the raw visuals. What u gonna do about that? #BOTFR

— SkrizzlyAdams (@Skrizzly Adams)

8. And it even threw a little shade.

@SkrizzlyAdams While we're waiting on @Outback, how about a Corona'rita? Cools down the HEAT. #BOTFR

— Applebees (@Applebee's)

11. But Outback refused to be put in the corner.

13. Meanwhile, Applebee’s just kept throwing more punches.

15. But Outback held its ground.

— Outback (@Outback Steakhouse)

@Applebees looks like @Outback is moving with great confidence!!! This could get crazy!!! #BattleOfTheFranchiseRestaurants

— SkrizzlyAdams (@Skrizzly Adams)

17. And then it brought out a secret weapon: a free giftcard.

— Outback (@Outback Steakhouse)

@Outback wow talk about upping the ante! And the conviction to "make it happen"! @Applebees is this bout to be a 3rd round knock out? #BOTFR

— SkrizzlyAdams (@Skrizzly Adams)

19. Applebee’s tried to fight back with an elaborate graphic.

@SkrizzlyAdams @Outback Our service Always RAWKS!! #BOTFR

— Applebees (@Applebee's)

@Applebees strong visuals & hip spelling, but @Outback just made a powerhouse punch w/ the free food!!! 5… 4…. 3… #LastChanceToGetUp #BOTFR

— SkrizzlyAdams (@Skrizzly Adams)

21. But eventually, it caved in and doled out a free giftcard as well.

@SkrizzlyAdams @Outback Don't DM us. We've got your GC right here: http://t.co/Ak1x3k7BJb #BooYah ~ART

— Applebees (@Applebee's)

@Outback wow did @applebees just make the greatest comeback in fighting history? I think so! Time someone proves their true greatness #BOTFR

— SkrizzlyAdams (@Skrizzly Adams)

23. At this point, the duel was losing a little bit of steam.

Two great fighters @Applebees and @Outback Great endurance, incredible strength, and mouth watering menus, but we need a winner! #BOTFR

— SkrizzlyAdams (@Skrizzly Adams)

@SkrizzlyAdams @Outback Triple Chocolate Meltdown for the count! #WINNING #BOTFR ~ ART

— Applebees (@Applebee's)

@Applebees @Outback is this about to be a 12 round fight?!?! The world NEEDS a CHAMPION… one of you needs to prove themselves! #BOTFR

— SkrizzlyAdams (@Skrizzly Adams)

26. Applebee’s was thankful for the challenge.

@Outback Thanks for a great fight. You're quite the adversary. Perhaps another day? Cheers! #Hi5 @SkrizzlyAdams ~ART

— Applebees (@Applebee's)

27. And Outback made a classy exit of its own.

@Applebees @SkrizzlyAdams Whenever there is a craving for steak, we'll be there until the bitter end.

— Outback (@Outback Steakhouse)

28. But then Applebee’s made itself the true winner by giving Skrizzly Adams (who is an aspiring musician) a special shoutout.

@SkrizzlyAdams Thanks for the fun today! Really digging 'That's Life' so we're following your @youtube channel :) ~ART

— Applebees (@Applebee's)

29. The moral of the story? Get franchise restaurants to duke it out on social media platforms.

@Applebees @PaulRizkallaJr @Outback Round 2 of #BattleOfTheFranchiseRestaurants Is gonna be a helluva fight! #BOTFR
