This New Carl’s Jr. Ad is Outrageous and Sexist

Is there nothing decent any more?

It seems like every new Carl’s Jr. ad is better than the last one. The latest features the new Tex Mex Bacon Thickburger and, more importantly, eight nearly perfect women wearing very little of anything.

The girls play a game of volleyball to decide whether the burger is more Tex or more Mex. It’s both—but who cares.

Some have said that the ad raises the “hot issue” of immigration because the game is being played over a border wall.

The wall is noticeably much too short, and certainly would not get Donald Trump’s stamp of approval.

We think in a nod to bipartisanship we can all get along here.

Damn, that’s so hot we have to watch it again.

    I am OUTRAGED. I’ll have to watch 20 more times and get back to you if I change my mind.

    I read that Carl’s Jr sales really took off when they realized their main customer base was hungry young men. No apologies, just more sales. The trumping of American. Turn down the PC. Turn down the peer pressure. Turn up the truth.

    When Idiocracy was made, Carl’s Jr. was still running its “Don’t Bother Me, I’m Eating” campaign, with food running down open-mouthed faces onto shirts while hidden microphones caught every slurp and smack.

    The Idiocracy version (which I, and no doubt many others, came up with independently the first time we saw one of these atrocities) was “F*** you, I’m eating.”

    Now, I can’t believe that advertising agency dolts actually learned anything from this spanking — they probably roared with laughter and said, “Yeah, EXACTLY.” But for what it’s worth, they soon after changed their campaign to cheesy sex exploitation.

    Still tasteless, but undeniably much more enjoyable to roughly 50 percent of us.

    As long as that Obama hack Robert Gibbs is scamming millions teaching McDonalds how to be a “progressive” restaurant, they can go hang.

    Turns out Carl’s Jr. makes a really good burger, and I eat there often now, even though I rarely see a super model in the restaurant….

    Just as an aside, it’s a pretty safe bet none of those girls has ever tasted a hamburger, or anything besides cigarettes and a yogurt cup, in the last 10 years.

    Carl’s Jr (and Hardees… why, in this day and age of national media do companies maintain separate identities??? Hellman’s/Best Foods, etc, etc, etc) will “low carb” anything on their menu.

    I have a lettuce-wrapped burger regularly. It’s messier than the bun version (nothing to sop up the grease :-)) but it keeps my carb allowance for things I really like.

    So, I’ll eat there regardless of ad campaigns, but they ARE good looking women.

    >>why, in this day and age of national media do companies maintain separate identities???

    Because in some areas Hardee’s is a stronger brand. It’s hard to take 70 years of history and marketing and throw it away. That’s what happens when you grow via aquisition. Even though it appears Hardee’s and Carl’s have the same menus, they do not. Many Hardee’s locations still sell roast beef, unfortunately the ones in Detroit do not. Hardee’s took a big hit when they merged Burger Chef into their system and rebranded them Hardee’s, went from having charbroiled burgers system wide to a hodge podge of cooking methods, original Hardee’s were charbroiled, former Burger Chef locations were fried. Carl’s has at least forced franchises to upgrade to charbroiled and certain menu modifications to be able to display the star logo. You will still find non-star Hardees out there, usually the ones selling roast beef and frying their burgers.
