Multiple classes - In his role as director of marketing for St. Louis brand Zach's Wing Sauce, Jamie Richter (Class of 1993) enlisted another alumnus to film the company's first-ever commercial. Richter reached out to Aaron Landgraf (Class of 2013), the CEO and creative director at 508 Films in St. Louis.

Landgraf in turn recruited fellow former Pirate Players Brittney Freeman (Class of 2010) to play a hostess in the commercial and Cassie Chandler (Class of 2013) to serve as make-up artist. Richter and Lara Corvera, Pattonville High School drama teacher, played extras in the commercial. Video for the commercial was filmed on location in St. Louis and featured a Wild West premise involving a "wing sauce shootout" in a saloon.
