Hardee's Informative - The new commercials are not distasteful; everyone needs to calm down.
All you people who are complaining about the new commercial need to get a couple of facts straight. First of all, the woman is not just "some sexy model"; she is Padma Lakshmi: chef, author, actress AND model. If you'd take the time to look at the print beneath her name, you'd know that. A chef and cookbook author, starring in a commercial about food; who'd have thought it? Secondly, the fact that she's attractive does not make this commercial indecent. Is she naked? Is she in any state of undress? No? Stop complaining, then.
Her dress is perhaps a little low-cut, but until I see a nip-slip, I'm not ever going to call indecency, and neither should you. And those of you who are suggesting that she licks the sauce "provocatively" - well, let me see you wipe up some sauce with a finger and not look pretty much the same as she does.
When an attractive and FULLY CLOTHED woman cannot sell a product on TV without people shrieking in horror, I don't know what's become of this country. Hardee's should not feel that they need to pull a commercial based on the Puritanical hand-wringing of a few people who think "Oh noes, there's a woman on a commercial! She must be getting EXPLOITED!"
