Not all good: The Bottom One

Carl's Junior is a fast food chain out here in California, related in some ways to Hardees, which pockmarks the Midwest and Southern states of this great land. They're known for their pretty distasteful and ridiculous advertising.

They're the ones who had Paris Hilton washing a car in her bikini, then eating a burger.

They're the ones who had old time rocker Eddie Money spilling the contents of his messy burger onto a page of music, only to have us believe that the splatter pattern made out the notes to his late 80s hit "Living in Paradise".

Well, they've got another one. It involves some Okie looking guy, more or less molesting a cow to the tune of one of those dance party songs whose title and artist I don't really know.

What're they advertising? Milk shakes.

What's so bad about it? A couple of things:

1) You'll have that "Shake. That. Thing. Duh-duh-duh-duh-duh. Shake. That. Thing" tune going through your head for the whole day.

2) While that annoying song goes through your head, you'll imagine an Okie shaking and molesting a cow.

Over and over again.

Don't believe me? Fine. Here's the Carl's Jr. website:


Have at it.

couldn't disagree with you more. i know we had this discussion in private already, but i think the world needs to know too. that ad is effing genius.
