Looks like brilliant marketing to me.

I think Meatloaf would find that pretty amusing, once he got past the "Aw, crap, I'm dead" part.
 
2022-01-22 10:45:46 AM  
I made meatloaf last night in his honor. It was delicious.

If I tried grilling anything in this weather, I'd be crying icicles instead of tears.

Let's act offended on his behalf!

They shouldn't have apologized. They were not aware. Gibbs' Rule #6

I use my grills and smokers (almost) every day!

-30C right now and ribs are on the smoker

Well done.

Weber has nothing to apologize for. The loaf family and their followers should just accept that their father committed suicide and wanted to die. It's not Weber's issue that they are a family of dumbf*cks related to a dead dumbf*ck.

F*ck them. The loafs should keep their fragile little bullshiat concerns to themselves.

Anti-vaxxers need to just STFU and die. They have less value alive than a good meatloaf recipe from Weber.

I think we should all grill those who die from stupidity.
 
2022-01-22 1:44:07 PM  
Now I'm thinking about funny tasteless things the internet could do that not-dead-yet celebrities would enjoy after they died.

I know George Carlin wanted to be blasted into space, but I don't want to type out my thoughts on living people, because I don't want to jinx anyone.

Dear Weber,

Please do a Trump steak recipe next.

I posted that email in the thread about his death.

And no, they did not send out an apology email.  At least not to me.  Not that I care, thought it was kinda amusing.

I'm not making something with COVID in it!

I am literally making meatloaf this evening.

/delicious coincidence
 
2022-01-22 2:43:27 PM  
The article didn't mention any blowback but I refuse to believe that anybody was genuinely offended and said so.
 
2022-01-22 2:53:23 PM  
When Meat first went on the road, every college that he played thought it would be amusing to serve meatloaf for the band dinner. That got old real fast and his rider specified NO MEATLOAF!  CSB

FWIW I received the original email and the apology.

That this is news is idiotic. In all likelihood the advertising person saw that "meatloaf" was trending online and did not know or care whatsoever about the musician.

So, if "machine gun kelly" dies the army should cancel training sessions for the day?
"50 cent"'s death should mean pricing anything half a dollar is tasteless?

With some marketing I've done, I've set things like weekly e-mails out a week or more in advance and it just fires off. You get the items discussed planned out, copy done, approved, set up and you keep moving on. You could do last minute, late-breaking things, but  I don't even think the "meatload trending" bit even need apply. Probably didn't even cross their minds about the coincidence until someone brought it up.

No matter how you slice it,

I'm sure their meatloaf recipe is better, more entertaining, and memorable then the performer who adopted the name meatloaf.

He was an anti-vax covidit and even posted that asshole Eric Clapton's nonsense. Fark him.

I own a Webber grill and I'll cook almost anything on it, but I won't do meatloaf. If the drippings from the ground meat doesn't start a flame, the bacon on top certainly will. I accept the fact that it's entirely possible to cook a meatloaf on a grill, but it ain't right. The proper place to cook a meatloaf is in an oven. No Webber, I won't do that.

It's indirect smoking so no flare up.

If Clapton dies of COVID I hope they send out a recipe for "Slow Lamb".

You can "grill" just about anything when you put it on aluminum foil.
