Look, I wouldn’t eat a Hardee’s or Carl Jr. burger if Paris Hilton served it to me naked, but she’s pretty nice eye candy– and anyway, it’s not like Hardee’s never did this before. I seem to recall a borderline pornographic Hardee’s ad with a much better-looking woman riding a mechanical bull v-e-r-y slowly while eating a hamburger. THAT was seriously hot. And I think Hardee’s also did an ad with an attractive blonde who could get her entire fist in her mouth. THAT was seriously twisted, but fun to watch.
And as far as Paris Hilton being an example of what’s wrong with America– I’d place her around 9999 on that list, way behind a bunch of things that I don’t want to get into on a food forum.
