Carl’s Jr. is famous for their racy commercials featuring scantily clad models eating enormous stuffed burgers full of drippy condiments. It’s a formula that’s worked for them, so why change it now? As you can see from the video above, the popular burger chain is continuing that tradition, with a little political commentary thrown in for good measure. But don’t worry, it’s all very tongue in cheek.
Carl’s Jr’s new commercial for their Tex Mex burger features two models in bikinis representing the U.S. and Mexico playing volleyball over a border fence acting as a net. While playing borderball, the two models argue whether the hamburger is “Tex” or “Mex.”
The American team (played by models Elle Evans, Bryanna Holly and Ashley Alexander) argues the burger is “Tex” because it features Black Angus beef and bacon, while the Mexican team (played by models Alejandra Guilmant, Kara Del Toro and Brittany Ward) argues it’s “Mex” because it has fire roasted pepper and onions.
Carl’s Jr. claims the new ad for the Tex Mex Bacon Thickburger was not intended to be a political statement and is simply a fast food ad. Either way, with sexy burger chomping, skimpy bikinis and the occasional slow-mo butt slap involved, we’re not complaining!
