Hardee's / vulgar commercial

The Hardee's commercial featuring Padma eating a hamburger in a manner illustrating sexual behavior is disgusting! This commercial is very inappropriate for anyone to have to view but especially children. Whoever is behind the making & broadcasting of this commercial has no respect for women and views them, as the commercial says, "A piece of meat". Until this commercial is pulled from the air, Hardee's will forfeit my business. Obviously money is more important to Hardee's than human respect & decency.

This commercial belongs in a porn movie not on telivison where children of all ages see it and imitate what they see. I'm very offended by it and it do turn it off and yes I've complained to Hardee's.

Instead of getting the prudes out of your lives how about we put the perverts in the closet. Lets put all these men back in their place.

If you choose to indulge in perverted sexual behavior, do it in a private place, not on public TV. Obviously you men have no respect for women or children. It's a shame that your minds have reached such a state of depravity. Why don't you get off your tv watching rears & be REAL men. Real men respect women!

By the way, Mr. Jason Tillo, I weigh 110 pounds. I'm not a fat couch potato watching the idiot box. Perhaps you are and that's why you are defending pornographic commercials. Contrary to the Hardee's commercial, women are NOT a piece of meat. Women are NOT here for your sick, sexual pleasure. Sex was created by God for 1 man & 1 woman in marriage. Woe to those who call evil good!

I think everyone that says these things A. no nothing about marketing and B. didn't listen or watch the commercial C. knows absolutely nothing about a passion for food, freedom of expression, and symbolism. You all are missing the point. First you would've had to read Padma's book to understand the context of which the commercial used it. Secondly, you would have to understand that for food lovers every where (especially chefs) eating great food is a very sensual experience. They derive the same pleasure from the experience of tastes as lovers do foreplay.
It's not porn people! Apparently, nobody who posts these comments have ever seen porn, even soft core porn. I'm a woman, and I am not offended by this commercial because I used to work in marketing for a few years. What people find offensive is usually because they are uneducated and do not see the whole picture. Sometimes that is the fault of the advertising/networks. Mostly because of time constraints, etc. things tend to get lost in translation. I wonder if everyone who complains is also calling the axe company, burger king, tampon companies, penis enhancement agencies, etc. It's only offensive if you are easy to offend. Try talking to your children instead of shielding them from the f***ing world. In the long run you are doing more harm than good by not preparing them for what is truly out there.
