Carl's Jr. / Hardee's - Kate Upton Drive-in / The Southwest Patty Melt -(2012)

Awkward conversation I predict will happen all over America now. "Will you eat that?" "Hell yes, but OMG, that's a little personal don't you think!?" - "The patty melt, I was talking about the patty melt."

Yes, just like with the Paris Hilton burger and the Kim Kardashian salad, fast food, pop culture 'stars' and sex have been tossed together in a clip that makes me lose my appetite for anything in this burger joint, though I must admit I am curious as how the burger regenerates after each bite. We could feed all of Africa with these patty melts!

Looking forward to the next ad where up and coming starlet fellates a baguette as tartar sauce drips down her face.
