Apparently, Carl's Jr/Hardee ads are phasing out the sexy, and replacing it with some random D-lister named Charles Esten. He plays a phony founder of the burger joint chains, called Carl Hardee, Sr. And of course his son, Carl Jr., is tagging along for new nutty adventures. Confused 

At first, I thought this was poking fun at the KFC Colonel Sanders ads, but I guess it's a parody of all those fast-food cartoonish characters like Ronald McDonald or the Burger King. Whatever it is, it's stupid, and it annoys me. Ouch

No burger is worth that pain. Not only does it seem to last 26 minutes, but there isn't a single funny or clever thing in it.

I dunno.

I'd go through quite a bit for a really great burger.

That ad, while unusually long wasn't too bad.

Thought it was sorta kinda funny, even.

I've seen much shorter ones that were more difficult to sit through than it.

To each his own, I suppose.
Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

I only liked the pictures of the burgers and the sweet black Corvette Stingray Convertible. I LOVE that car!

So the new ad campaign is an apology tour for the sexy, lewd acting women with soft porn eating references?

I can see why middle America might not like that.  I'm not agreeing, it's just the way it is.  When you pander to one-half of the gender population, you lose out on the women spending power aspect.  There's lots of places still that are more conservative and don't appreciate Sports Illustrated models posing for food, and it isn't a "wholesome" message to attract the kids.  Just saying.

Anyway, the new ad is too long, and a mess in the beginning, and weird.

Sex sells, for better or worse. If you're gonna use John Stamos to sell yogurt or men with bells hanging off their underwear for some asinine Christmas ad - we can have bikini models for hamburgers. DEAL. (for the record, I never particularly cared for Carl's Jr's "sex ads" myself)

Guess what? Women buy food too, and watching women in bikinis sucking on their fingers is not that much of an attractive marketing strategy to us. Also, I grew up in NC, where Wilbur Hardee started Hardee's, and he was cheated out of his empire for $35K in the 1960s. The OP is correct that the "founder" is fake, a cross between Carl's and Hardee's, both owned by the same co.

Just to follow up with the ad I mentioned playing on my YouTube page.
I like the boob tube and I like burgers too!!
Sorry ladies, it's not your fault that God made such a perfect body design for the fella's and some women to appreciate.

This mashup of the founder and son based on the real Carl Karcher and Wilber Hardee is annoying.  The "father" gives me the creeps.  I'd rather they go back to the eye candy soft porn.

Chip Esten was really good on Whose Line Is It Anyway back in the old days. He's on Nashville now, which is a reasonably popular show. Which makes it really odd that he is doing a dumb commercial like that...

Exactly!

Show us the food we are supposed to be getting when we frequent your restaurant.  We will then compare what we received from the friendly cashier either at the walkup counter or the drive-thru window to what was advertised and agree or disagree that what we purchased with our own hard-earned money is in fact what we ordered based on your commercial.

Leave the family, fambly, porn star actresses and other stupid sh*t out of it!

Hardees is disgusting anyway. Dead  "Models" on the brink of having a career in porn or a dork trying to look old is not going to make me run out the door to eat at some fast food joint.
Chevy commercials that feature annoying hipsters make me NOT want to ever buy a Chevy......
