I’m sure most of you have been subjected to the disgusting commercials that Carl’s Jr./Hardees puts out. When they aren’t exploiting/abusing cows or using explicit sexual images to sell their food, they end them by slopping down the burger at the end of the commercial. A huge, cardiac arrest-inducing burger drops from the sky, with 3 different kinds of animals in 8 different forms oozing out of it and the announcer blathers on about what an amazing burger it is. Their bent is on being manly, even when they don’t explicitly say it. The announcer’s deep voice and the sensual way he describes their burgers is nauseating.

I decided that we needed our own “manly: burger commercial. Well, not so manly because it’s my voice, but whatever. It’s probably their idea of a nightmare… and my idea of good food.

    Well done, but I think it needs more boobs and maybe a sports car to look more delicious. Maybe it could drop from the sky directly onto some boobs.

    Ahh those commercials drive me nuts! It’s crazy to me that a company can be so blatantly sexist and not constantly be grilled by the public about it. You’re commercial is much better!

    Ha ha ha! That is awesome. I hate those stupid commercials, especially the smacking glop sound of the burger at the end: thank you for not including that in your much better version. 😉

    Wow… and I thought the Harvey’s ringer burger we have here in Canada was bad. I wrote a rant about it on my blog and that post ironically gets the most visits. You know why? Because people are searching for it in google images and they end up finding the image cropped for the post. I wonder how much time they spend on the page once they realize it’s a rant, and then realize they’re on a vegan blog.

    I once made a heart attack sub… took a veggie sub from a local greasy spoon and asked for no cheese. Then I took an entire package of Yves salami, or something, and at the whole oil-dripping thing. It was tough but I did it, and I’m never doing that again :)
