Carl’s Jr. has decided to take a different approach for their new ad campaign, rather than their usual hot girl in bikini sexily chomps on an oversized hamburger fare. Well, kind of. In this new spot, Carl’s Jr. employees state their beliefs about burgers. Things start off non-sexy, but then cue the butt shot of a model with a burger in her hand. “We believe in putting hot models in our commercials because ugly ones don’t sell burgers,” a faux employee says. Next, another one explains, “We believe in celebrity endorsements because we like to hang out with celebrities and ride water motorcycles.” Cut to Olivia Munn in a string bikini on a waterski next to Kareem Abdul Jabar.

Last night, a super pregnant Kate Hudson sat down with David Letterman to talk about her new movie “Something Borrowed,” her new engagement to Muse frontman Matthew Bellamy, and the fact that she’ll be giving birth for the second time in just a few weeks. “I don’t feel prepared.

But — serious question — do they fist pump?

Is this military-themed Budweiser commercial, um, gay? I’m guessing you don’t ask and you don’t tell, either. With so many beer commercials opting for the “real men aren’t gay! GRR! Eat some raw meat!” tactic, I can help but wonder whether it means something when two men are portrayed lovingly. As the gay blog After Elton notes, “If you substituted a woman for [the potential boyfriend portrayed throughout the commercial], it would read pretty much exactly like a heterosexual relationship.” That’s a good point.
