Drivethru Playmates

From the USA Today:

Hardee's, Monday rolled out its Monster Thickburger - two 1/3-pound slabs of Angus beef, four strips of bacon, three slices of cheese and mayonnaise on a buttered sesame seed bun. The sandwich alone sells for $5.49, $7.09 with fries and a soda.

Even a news release touted the Monster - 1,420 calories and 107 grams of fat - as "a monument to decadence." Add fries and a soda and a single meal would involve more calories and fat than most people should get in a day.

CNN reports that Playboy is now running a Girls Of McDonald's feature on their website. Hopefully the girls showing their McBoobies haven't been eating any of those Hardee's burgers, or McDonald's own either....

Jeff:

The Girls of McDonald's stuff is just a response to the Hardee's Western Thickbuger commercial with a hot girl scantily dressed riding a mechanical bull while eating the burger (with the tune of Foghat's Slow Ride in the background.)

HardeesGirl.com has more on the commercial. They do have a discount card/keychain from Hardee's with animated motion of the girl from the commercial on the bull - it gets you discounts on upsizing the combo.

Wow, that girl can ride a bull!

The commercials definitely influenced my decision to eat at Hardees, but since I've got a little girl now I suppose I'll be eating at mickey d's :)

What's REALLY funny is that these mega-fat foods are low-carb, and so Atkins dieters will see them as ok to eat when they're trying to lose wieght... lol.

I'm betting you can get rid of half the calories on that Monsterburger if they just hold the mayo.

Seriously -- I think Hardee's goes through more mayonnaise in a day than meat.

Old Man Karcher bought Hardee's some years back.

I always liked the Carl's Jr. ads featuring Carl, especially when he had to rein in Happy's marketing excesses and emphasize the (then-)slogan, "Go for the food."

Hardee's has never actually been able to run with that...

I can believe that the girls of mcdonald's will be hot.

Some of the hottest women I've seen in my life worked at fastfood restaurants in small towns along the free way. Unfortunately, everytime I've been in a hurry.

Matthew Ensley:

I wish I could find that commercial of the chick riding the mechanical bull eating the six dollar burger, that was awesome, heh.
