Conan Steals Our Idea...Sorta
So one of the casualties of our busy summer was that we had to table one of our favorite ideas: re-creating those sexy Carl's Jr. ads with members from Sexy Burger.
Our male Burger Mob is probably licking their chops right now at the thought of the Spot, Professor Purple, and the Kid donning skimpy outifts and stepping into the roles of Paris Hilton, Audrina Patridge and Kim Kardashian (could there be a more talented trio?). But we were looking at this as an opportunity to cater to our female fans and instead were going to insert Mr. BJ, the Revolutionary Man and me into the aforementioned commercials.
Unfortunately for the ladies (or fortunately for the guys and X Dad and X Mom and my political aspirations) our idea has been usurped by the one and only Conan O'Brien. In an ad for his new talk show on TBS, Conan tackles the Paris Hilton edition of the commercials. Fortunately (or unfortunately depending on your point of view) he did leave the door open for us to do our own parody by not wearing a bathing suit (rumors abound that there are images of Mr. BJ trying out for this commercial) and not using burgers as a prop.
Here is the video from Conan (hat tip to Paste Magazine) and the original from Paris. Enjoy!
The rumors were true...
