Paris Hilton & Carl's Jr.

Now this is an interesting burger ad:

http://www.spicyparis.com/paris.html

They say it's Paris Hilton, but I think it might be Redtressed in a wig.

    Awesome. The Six Dollar Guacamore Bacon Burger has 1,120 calories, 730 of them coming from fat. Judging from the ad, I don't think Paris has been eating too many of them.

    I saw this commercial last week on Jim Cramer's Mad Money (CNBC--3 PM east coast). He was recommending the stock (CKE--NY exchange) on account of it. CKE is now featuring the add on their corporate web site.

    Explosive Response to Paris Hilton Ad Crashes Carl's Jr. Web Site
    Frenzy to View Much-Anticipated TV Commercial Overloads Servers for Hours

    CARPINTERIA, Calif. -- May 23 -- "Build it and they will come," may have originally referred to the creation of a baseball diamond, but Carl's Jr.(R) restaurants discovered Friday that it also applied to a swimsuit-clad, car-washing, burger-eating Paris Hilton web site.

    On Thursday, Carl's Jr. launched a special "mini" site touting the Paris Hilton Spicy BBQ Six Dollar Burger(TM) ad that had created a buzz weeks ago. Rumors abounded that the spot was "too hot" for network television. In truth, the ad began airing last Thursday, and a hotter internet-only version was posted on the mini site, www.spicyparis.com. Visitors flooded the site, which was unequipped to handle the unexpected traffic volume, and the host servers crashed at 1:14 p.m. Friday.

    "It was a mixed blessing," said Brad Haley, executive vice president of marketing for Carl's Jr. "We wanted to create a Paris Hilton site that would attract visitors, and we certainly achieved that objective. Unfortunately, we just weren't prepared for the influx of traffic, and disappointed a number of visitors. It turned out that Paris was too hot for our servers."

    In the 30-second spot, Hilton is shown eating The Spicy BBQ Six Dollar Burger while washing a Bentley in her swimsuit. On May 19, both Carl's Jr. and Hardee's(R) launched newly redesigned web sites showcasing the Paris Hilton mini site featuring the ad, along with behind-the-scenes footage and still shots from the filming of the commercial.

    Haley said that all the linked sites - www.spicyparis.com, www.carlsjr.com and www.hardees.com -- were up and running again by 5:00 p.m. Friday, and the system is now supported by more robust servers to ensure no further interruptions to visitors' online experiences.

    Gives a whole new meaning to the term "food porn" j/k. But Hardee's knows what it is doing, going for the Spike TV segment and dragging everone else with it. Like it or hate it they are getting people taking. Heck I may even go down and try that Spicy burger, and that is even if Paris Hilton was not on the commercial.

    Paris Hilton is a classic sympton of what is wrong with America. By being wealthy, allegedly attractive in a laminated sort of way, and allowing a home video of her and a boyfriend in flagrante delicto to make the rounds on the internet, she gets to indulge her narcissistic penchant for being famous.

    In other words, she's a celebrity despite never having done a thing worth celebrating.

    I agree JMckee, biggest non-talent to go so far this side of M. Monroe and at least she did a decent job at acting. Seen House of Wax with a few buddies and Paris was TERRIBLE. There are 6th graders who I know personally who could act better than her. Anyways....There was a article in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch a few weeks ago talking about Hardees going for the 18-35 male segment and getting the family to come along. They also talked about doing dang near whatever it takes to get noticed, hence one of the nutrition people on the article retorting coined a phrase "food porn" meaning how Hardee's was "seducing" the viewer with the calories and showing big photos of the burger. All of these things seem to fit why they showed Paris. Not saying it's right either way but Hardee's had me when they did the New Hardee's commericials.

    As someone on another board (www.dealmac.com) succinctly put it, Paris Hilton is a "skank ho". But please don't blame all America for her skankiness. Sure she has her fans but I bet there are more people who laugh at her than lust after her. Personally, I'm always glad to see the rigid, government-set limits of what can be broadcast stretched a bit, but I'd rather see them stretched by the likes of The Daily Show (as they were Monday night to a degree that made even my jaw drop) than by the likes of Paris.

    I missed it. What hath Jon Stewart wrought?

    My comment didn't mean all America loves Paris. I mean we worship wealth and celebrity in general instead of excellence. Chains over mom-n-pop if you will.....

    Sure you didn't mean in flagrante delicious ? The possibilities are endless.

    And Carl's has a burger with 1301 calories.

    It's nothing new, really. Just reference one Edie Sedgwick, circa 1965-70, for similar effect.

    Someone once said, "People used to be famous for being special. Now they are considered special for being famous." Paris Hilton is a great example of this.

    If she has, she problably threw them up in the toilet. How else does one explain her toothpick frame when she doesn't do anything?

    The difference between Paris Hilton and a Carl Jr. burger. . . .
    I might eat a Carl Jr. burger if I were hungry enough.

    I don't even like the smell of skank.

    Look, I wouldn't eat a Hardee's or Carl Jr. burger if Paris Hilton served it to me naked, but she's pretty nice eye candy-- and anyway, it's not like Hardee's never did this before. I seem to recall a borderline pornographic Hardee's ad with a much better-looking woman riding a mechanical bull v-e-r-y slowly while eating a hamburger. THAT was seriously hot. And I think Hardee's also did an ad with an attractive blonde who could get her entire fist in her mouth. THAT was seriously twisted, but fun to watch.

    And as far as Paris Hilton being an example of what's wrong with America-- I'd place her around 9999 on that list, way behind a bunch of things that I don't want to get into on a food forum.

    I can hardly wait. I read in the paper that the ads start here in another week or two. I suspect it'll cause a tremendous uproar around here.

    You are or don't like women. If Paris Hilton came anywhere near me naked, burger or not, i'd be so all over her. Take it from a guy who's still unhappily married to some Chinese chick.

    You misread me, sir. I would only pass on the hamburger. Ms. Hilton would be another story, but I wanted to leave some things to the imagination.
