Dunkin' Claims 'All The Fall Things' Ad Wasn't Inspired By Blink-182

Earlier this month, we were all chuckling over Dunkin's seemingly apparent nod to blink-182 when the band shared store signage that read "All The Fall Things," but the donut franchise swears the marketing campaign wasn't inspired by the pop punk pioneers.
“Nothing creates excitement like the return of pumpkin, and people are always thrilled when this beloved flavor is back at Dunkin’,” Drayton Martin, Dunkin’s vice president of brand stewardship, told AltPress. “To celebrate and tempt those cravings, we sought to showcase the breadth of fall deliciousness we are offering on the menu. While ‘All The Fall Things’ store signage wasn’t inspired by blink-182’s popular song ‘All the Small Things,’ we are honored with the positive response from the band and their fans and encourage them to enjoy a Signature Pumpkin Spice latte when they can!”
Kinda disappointing, right?
"All The Small Things" was a single on blink's 1999 album Enema of the State. While fans were disappointed that the album's recent 20th anniversary didn't spark a reunion with Tom DeLonge, the band's former guitarist said a few months ago that a reunion is all but inevitable.
“Everyone wants to know, 'Are you guys gonna play again?' Yeah, of course we are. We just gotta figure out the timing, how it works for everybody,” he divulged at the time. Tom is currently working on a new Angels & Airwaves record, which he declares is the best album he's ever made. And blink is prepping a new EP, which includes their recently released single "Quarantine."
