a couple years ago i ranted about carl’s jr.'s UTTERLY DISGUSTING television ads featuring open-mouth chomping of their product, accompanied by hideous sounds of these lard-asses chewing their food. Along with the juices and various sauces dribbling all over their bodies.
Well, those ads are gone now, but for the past few months, they have been airing a similiar yet equally disgusting ad campaign. The dribbling sauces are gone, but the hideous sounds remain. And the voice-over adds a whole new level of disgust.
Picture fades in to a slovenly man holding a burger. Imagine microphones somehow placed inside his mouth as he chomps down on the burger. you get the annoying sounds of him biting into it, chewing it, swallowing it, etc.
Now, the voice-over. Imagine your most white-trash pot-smoking friend, in a full-on marijuana haze. Think Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure. He drawls “a burger… fries… and a coke” <long, long pause> “don’t bother me, i’m eating”.
More horrid chomping sounds. More inside-the-mouth chewing sounds. These fuckers disgust me to no end.
Anyway, for those of you not on the west coast who have mercifully not been subjected to this televised torture, I apologize for not being able to fully explain the horror of the carl’s jr. “don’t bother me, i’m eating” campaign.
Those of you who have seen these assaults on the senses, please tell me i’m not nuts.
