What The Heck Kind Of Advertising Is This? A-Hole vs B-Hole

What the heck kind of commercial is this? Hardee’s (better known as Carl’s Jr. to us West Coasters*) is pimping out their new Biscuit Holes – which I guess are like donut holes, but with icing. Scrumptious and healthy, I’m sure.

They took to the streets to ask people what they like better: A-holes, or B-holes? Sick!

Since when did advertising become all about sex? Ok, stupid question, but really – as if it weren’t bad enough seeing a razor company coyly hinting at the shape of your hair “down there,” or an internet company suggesting that your husband’s addiction to internet porn makes you wanna barf, now we’re comparing breakfast pastries to… well, you can use your imagination.

Edited to add: Not sure how I forgot this gem of a Burger King ad. What are we selling here? Is this a sandwich ad, or pornography?

Smile!

I suppose it works, though – I am blogging about it, after all. Woo Hardee’s!

*Ahh! Did I just call myself a “West Coaster?!?” Somebody. Get. Me. Out. Of. Here.
