: Why is This Commercial Such a Big Deal?

I keep hearing a lot about the new Paris Hilton commercial for Carl's Jr. burger joint. In Canada (at least Western Canada) we don't have that chain.

I checked out the commercial and I suddenly felt the need to go buy a burger. However, it seems a lot of people find it somehow offensive, and I can't see why. Apparently some parents' groups want it erased from the face of the Earth, because they don't want children (sixteen year olds?) seeing a girl in a bikini until after they're married. (And judging by some of the wives I know, not even then).

So I was wondering if any of you have seen the commercial yet, and your opinions on it. And don't call Paris a slut! She's going to be my ex-wife someday.

Well she is kind of a slut, there's no getting around it. But I enjoyed the commercial. The religious right might want it and all of our other freedoms erased (for the good of the country of course) but there's not a whole lot they can do but bitch and moan.

I enjoy a bit of stirring the pot as you can see.

You may be correct, but I don't want religion to be an issue here, it goes against the rules, but I don't see anything wrong with the commercial itself. I think it's silly to get worked up over something so trivial, the Germans and French have extremely sexy commercials and no one bats an eye over it.

Who is Paris? What is Carl's Jr.?
What a waste of money having so called stars in commerical
To buy a product because someone is getting paid a hock a product, is a joke.
I guess "Stupid is as Stupid does"

Paris is a skank (see, I didnt call her a slut :)).
Carl's Jr is a brand of fast food chain, reputed for its monster-sized burgers.

Now she makes me wonder if my mushroom swiss burger has STDs in it.

I didn't see the commercial. We don't have those burger joints in our area.

I don't think she is that hot anyway, but my guess is that she is bascially naked, bent over on all fours, panting, and eating a burger like a dog in heat.

Am I correct?

Super. So I was correct then.

She is on all fours, panting like a dog, and eating a burger.

I like it. I change my mind. She is hot.

It's working. Every news report I hear about it mentions Carl's Jr, so they are getting their advertising anyway.

Her technique of washing the Bentley is all wrong!
She's gonna scratch the hood with her heels!
You do the wheels last, not first!
The hamburger is too big.
All 3 items are extremely high maintence, car, girl, burger.
I am jealous. I want all 3, but can only have the burger....
I guess that's the point of the commercial. :cookoo:
BTW, never heard of "Carl's" ~ must be a mid-west thing.....
Not here in NJ or NY - McCrap & Burgler King probably will
not let 'em "in" ~ ~
I'll stick with White Castle !! :thumbsup:

mmmmm white castle .....gosh i miss those ....

the commerical is fine in my book, if it is played after 930 pm , that same time that the fcc should allow all those stupid male pecker pills to be advertised ....or feminine products ....all of those should only be ran after 930 ...that way i dont loose my appetite when im trying to eat as the commerical says "if your erection lasts more than 4 hours see medical attention"

those commercials should be followed up by ads for the bissel home carpet cleaner so i can get the vomit off the floor

I have an 8 year old son and a 10 year old daughter. I don't have an issue with them seeing the Paris Hilton commercial.

I do agree that the Cielus (spelling?) / Levitra / Viagra commercials should only be televised after 10:00 PM EST. My kids ask really tough questions when they come on. I would prefer those commercials to just go away...

I don't see what the problem is. She isn't wearing anything you wouldn't see at a swimming pool. I mean, if she was wearing a see-through thong, that would be one thing, but she's wearing a black bikini. And besides, its not like anywhere in the united states even has carl jr. burgers (we don't in the south). I think the closest are in Oklahoma, way way in Oklahoma. as in middle of nowhere oklahoma:lildevil:.

Those religious people need to get a life. I say its best to expose children to those things early on, because if you shelter them like that, they turn out REAL f*cked up. It's hard for a teenage boy to make friends when you don't know who paris hilton is:lildevil:

Hi Ralph, My opinion is they made such a big deal over Janet Jackson's breast. Which by the way had a jewel cover over it. But it's okay to have a slutty commercial such as this one fly with no problems. It is definetly a double standard issue. You don't know what Paris is selling a car,a water hose,a swimsuit or what until the end. I have a 10 year old and I don't feel he need's this extra stimulation while he's watching his cartoon's :)
If it's going to be shown it should be a late night commercial. Because you can't just turn the channel you never know when it will pop up. I'm not a prude but I think this commercial takes it a bit over the edge. I'm sure there will even be issues between husband's and wife's over this commercial. It makes me angry not like running out to Carl's Jr. And beleive me you won't see people that look like Paris at Carl's Jr.
Peace :)

Carl's Jr. = Hardee's for you Easterners.

I could care less about the ho known as Paris Hilton, and what or what she doesn't do on or off tv.

Carl's Jr./Hardee's has been on the loosing side of the burger war's for many years. If they think that 16-25 year old male is the market demographic for burgers, and they beleive that will help them survive, then more power to them.

Meanwhile, Mickey D's is creating a healthy menu and they are increasingly targeting women in their advertisements. The result is a rebound in their market share and stock price. Very remarkable, considering the countless attacks they faced from the health Nazi wing of the far left anti-coporate politcal spectrum.

The point being, there are stupid people on the left AND the right in the burger wars. I mean, like burgers are the key to world peace or something.

That said, Carl's has failed to recognize that women are mothers and wives, and these women are much more likely to make the nightly family dining decisions, and not some hormone driven teenage boy.

So I hoped they factored in the loss of revenue from these offended women, as they seek the pimple faced star crazed teenage market. ;)

We've come a long way from the days when the left would be opposed to the degradation and exploitation of females for corporate profits, haven't we? :yup:

If you were 42 and married for 20 years, you would have a different point of view.

The 60-second X-tended play is MUCH better than the original !! I like. Given the choce between the car & her...no contest, THE CAR ! (Lower maintenance, too.)
