On Wednesday, Buffalo Wild Wings released a new ad featuring the group formerly known as Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, according to Entertainment Weekly. In the Behind the Music-style spot, the group changes their name to Boneless Thugs-N-Harmony. "It's still gonna be Bone," says Wish Bone(less), "just, -less." Layzie Bone, the only group member who doesn't want the name change, eventually tries Buffalo Wild Wings, admitting that they're good, but "they ain't have no bones in 'em," he says. "They ain't 'change your name' good." The ad ends in a cliffhanger, with the narrator wondering if the name change will stick; Layzie flashes his middle fingers at a Boneless poster and reiterates that, "I ain't changing sh**." How long will this name change--aka marketing stunt--go on? “We have a lot of things that we can’t discuss at the moment,” says the group’s manager, Steve Lobel.
