Baby Huey and Carl's Jr...

I thought that Carl's Jr. (fast food chain mainly in the west) could do no worse than when it utilized Dennis Rodman in it's commercials a few years ago. But they have. Hugh Hefner graces the T.V. screen now in a commercial for the fast food chain. In the ad Huey rambles on about not being able to pick a "favorite" because he loves "them all." We then cut to some quick clips of a few bimbos pondering the question, "just how can Hugh choose?" Of course, he's talking about the myriad of burger choices he has at Carl's Jr... but the off color humor is obvious. The commercial closes with the words, "Some guys don't like the same thing night after night." Now, lots of families grab fast food on their way to soccer practice or whatever. I, for one, do not want my kids associating their high fat meal with this icon of hedonism. Let Carl's Jr. know what you think about their using Hugh the Playboy in their ad campaign. Better yet, go for In-n-Out Burger.
