Carl's Jr. tries "sexy burger eating" strategy with a male subject

Can you spot the differences between this ad, starring reality TV "daredevil" Bryan Spangler, and the burger chain's more typical ads?

Hint: He's fully dressed. But that's just the tip of the iceberg.

Does Mr. Spangler present himself to the viewer as a sexual object? Not really. He looks skeptically at he burger, eats it, then reclines manfully on his car as if he's getting a BJ.

**rolls eyes**



  1. I feel like this is still speaking to the exact same audience who finds half-naked women appealing: men who want to feel manlier

  2. Really, how hard would it be for a man to eat a burger suggestively? Seems dead obvious to me.
