Panera unveiled a funny commercial made by advertising agency Goodby Silverstein & Partners. The advert features Michael Bolton with a parody of the singer’s hit song from the 90s – “When a Man Loves a Woman.”
The message is “Not every menu item deserves an epic love song sung by Michael Bolton. We felt like the NEW Broccoli Cheddar Mac and Cheese was worthy.”

“To celebrate the first-ever mash-up of two iconic Panera menu items coming together in perfect harmony, we knew we had to do something big,” said Eduardo Luz, Chief Brand & Concept Officer at Panera. “The combination of our crowd-pleasing Broccoli Cheddar Soup, with our Mac & Cheese is a true embodiment of Panera’s dedication to delicious food. We felt so passionately about the flavor combination that the love song almost wrote itself, and who better to help us announce to the world than love song legend and Panera superfan, Michael Bolton.”

Lyrics:
When some mac loves broccoli cheddar/
Can’t keep your mouth on nothin’ else/
Two classic loves swirled into one/
Yes, it’s soup on tender pasta/
It can do no wrong/
Cause creamy cheese and broccoli loves macaroni
