Sex sells. Sex sells.
Mechanical bulls, Hugh Hefner, and Paris Hilton are only a few of the props used by Hardees to promote their thickbugers and advertise that men would starve without Hardees. Ironically, Hardees has even advertised it is the last place you would go for a burger. From the start, their commercials were obviously only geared toward young, sex ridden men. Now it's like they purposly don't want women in their restaurants. If you've seen the hot Camerson Richardson riding a bull while getting to second base with a burger you know what I'm talking about. Maybe the more recent and scandalous Paris Hilton showing how to wash herself and a car at the same time while eating a hamburger appeals to you more? What about a talking fetus? Maybe some provocative cheerleaders? Maybe a sloppy eater? No?
Well, how about a guy rubbing a cow? That's right. A guy getting physical with a cow. After seeing this commercial several times, I felt compelled to write this. The commercial consists of this guy dancing and rubbing a female cow to the song "Get Busy" and then following the commercial up with- "Milk Shakes." Oh my. There's so much left up to the imagination and I wonder if that's the viewer's fault or Hardees' fault. There's nothing funny or smart or interesting about these commercials. You sit there and wonder what the heck is going on and if you should call the police or throw your TV out the window.
Hardees advertisers want you to think like this:
- Hot women eat at Hardees.
- Hot women make out with Hardees hamburgers.
- If I eat at Hardees, I'll make out with hot women.
- I should eat at Hardees.
I actually think like this:
- Hot women don't associate with cows.
- Hardees customers grope and freak cows to music.
- Hot women are repulsed by Hardees customers.
- I should stay away from Hardees.
Here's a few of the commercials...
As a side note, here's a pretty hilarious parody of the Paris Hilton commercial by a recruiting company. You can guess they picked the wrong person for the job.
