Back to the basics

Advertising for the Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s chain — they started on opposite coasts and eventually sort of grew together — has occasionally ventured a tad onto the risqué side in recent years.

Not anymore, at least for now:

Not to be a spoilsport, but Carl Karcher and Wilber Hardee were not necessarily anything like this. I think. I figure I’ve eaten too much of their food to worry about it.

    I don’t buy the “transformation” one bit, but I do think more businesses and the like probably do need to do the equivalent of saying “Shut up, Junior.”

    (Any chance this is their April 1 contribution?)

    I doubt it, since the first actual TV airing of the spot will be on the 2nd of April, on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim.

    Of course it would be shown on Adult Swim.

    Have never been to the chain, but I like the ad.
