The spot opens on a mysterious wanderer and his trusty steed as he discovers a literal fork in the road.  We come to find that the wanderer is on a quest for breakfast and the fork in the road is forcing him to choose between pancakes or omelettes. Which way to go? He struggles deeply with this quandary until he’s abruptly rescued by an casual bystander who informs him that he could just go to IHOP where “they have all kinds of omelettes that come with pancakes,” so he doesn’t have to choose. He further assists the wanderer by pointing out the nearest IHOP, which has been directly across the street the entire time. 

The campaign from Droga5 NY was created based on the consumer insight that the combination of omelettes plus pancakes (sweet and savory) appealed to customers. David Shafei of production company World War Seven directed the spot.
